This is apparently the only place that two railways cross over each other at a river. The holy grail for photographers is to get separate trains crosssing each different bridge in the same photo - preferably locomotives!

As a railroad builder I appreciate your last few pictures, Tery. But living in a land without any mountains, I'll never be able to build bridges like this. Thanks for sharing.

Howdy Norrel and Javad

Thank you for your kind remarks.

Norrel I bet you could learn :)

I just got across the tracks for this shot but not soon enough to set up the tripod. When the locomotive passed it set off the alarm on my car.

Beautiful place for lovers of landscapes. And a very interesting challenge for photographers. 50% have failed you and you have to wait for the second. Good photo! like 8

Similar challenges are waiting for tourists in Greece by the Corinth Canal. Should be included on the photo big ship and train locomotive on the bridge . And if they managed to seize the train, ship and bus on the highway bridge it would be great.

All the best from Poland, Zygmunt

Greetings Zygmunt

Thank yu for yur comment. Yes a challenge to take up when it's warmer. This time I waited one hour but just the one train. Another task will be to have an eagle flying overhead. Good luck with your challenge. And All the Best in 2012!

Caio, tery
