The shadow of a railway ~ brilliant

I thought that the bridge at the end finished it off nicely - trouble is, if the train made it under the bridge it would shoot straight off Dunwich cliffs.

No wonder it is a ghost line

Very delicate use of HDR brings out the most of this wonderful scene. Love the shadow lines here. Another 'Gud-Un'. Cheers, Herb

Herb coincidence of time of day and inclination of the sun - but I was glad to spot the potential for a fun shot! W

Greetings William - This is an excellent shot of a path I know well.. This spot even featured in a short film way back in the 70's - A ghost story, no less, by MR James.

This whole coastline is worthy of a visit and seeing this propmpts me to go again... although I have heard it is no longer open to the public...

Hi Steve, this should still be open to the public as it is a public right of way. What a coincidence for me to caption this photo when it is already the scene of a ghostly film! Cheers, William
