Train Trestle over the Rock River, just north of Byron, Illinois, USA.
The original track – visible as narrow gauge where the trestle begins – was laid in 1898. The trestle and the newer track were built in 1920. Thank you to the kindly, old gentleman who allowed us to use his property to cut through and to shoot from, and who gave us a little history lesson. :)) I had this edit in mind the second I saw this trestle. ;-) Fuji FinePix E550.

Most of my photos are – more or less – sootc. I’ll tweak contrast and brightness on a few, or convert to sepia or B&W, but aside from that, it’s usually just straightening and cropping. I do have fun with a few pix, but that’s rare for me. I use an old Fuji E550 FinePix P&S, exclusively.
