on Google Maps
For Panoramio (and GoogleEarth), my idea has always been "what would it look like if someone were going there to visit"; and I've tried to do that with "photographs", but there certainly are "snapshots" in my gallery as well; but all with appropriate 'Titles'. I've also tried to keep my 'Tags' as succinct as possible, so other similar shots can be easily viewed. (And, of course the Tag "Not Selected for GoogleEarth" is always an option.) My 'Profile' shot is of riding on the platform between railcars on the White Pass & Yukon Railroad; I grew up in a railroad town and so trains have always held an allure; this ride was a superbly enjoyable time. Thanks for visiting and I hope you found interesting and enjoyable shots.

... you should ask for a "Second Review" (it's got a plane in it, so they may still disallow for GoogleEarth), but it's an iconic view of a sparsely populated region and needs to be represented on the GE map ...

Hello Digacho ... just feels like there's a cold wind blowing ... the mist coming off the water is mystical (no pun intended) ... Gold-starred as a Favorite ... Regards, elelwal

You are right. I was really lucky with the timing!

... Burlington Northern Santa Fe in Maryland? ... railroad consolidation has made for some strange (rail)bedfellows ...

ha.. ha.. I wish...

Thanks again for the heads up!

Ooops! Thanks for the correction.

There's more around it. I was sent to Rockville by my job for a few days and then drove west to get out of the suburban junk. I was kind of pressed for time by the time I found Webbs, but I noted that there were a couple of beautiful farms nearby. I usually just set off in a general direction and never have a real goal of any one place that I'm trying to find, therefore I am never lost.

There is a similar mural in Fredericksburg VA. The one here is a mosaic at a garden center. Even the colors are the same.
