Foggy Convergence

Today’s shot takes us back to the iron railway bridge that crosses the Big Blue in Manhattan, KS.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, this location was a complete accident and the fog was just complete luck.  This was my “backup” location due to the fact that there wasn’t any water flowing over Pillsbury Crossing.  I really wanted to get back to the bridge with the fall colors setting in, but I just didn’t have the time while up visiting in the little apple.

Once again, I am torn between the color version of this shot and the B&W.  I still think I like the purple hues of the foggy morning enough that it puts the color version up top for me, but I still like the classic look of the B&W as well.  Opinions?

  1. Love the symmetry and that ‘light at the end of the tunnel’. Colour version, for sure!

  5. Fantastic symmetry and mood Scott! I personally prefer the b/w version as it keeps the color from overwhelming the atmosphere.

  6. I think the colour version is much more powerful, but both are very good. Great work.

  9. Wonderful symmetry – it really is that ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ feeling. Personally I prefer the B&W version, I think the colour takes away from the simplicity. The image is all about line
