Weekly Black & White Photo

Walking to South Cumberland

Tracks-To-South-Cumberland

This photo was created using a DSLR and an 18 – 70mm lens. ISO was 200 and exposed for 1/125 sec @f/5.6.

Leaving the Western Maryland station, the tracks bearing off to the right head across the Potomac River to Ridgeley, WV. The tracks that go straight ahead, where you can see some people walking along them, head south and parallel the C&O Canal Towpath, until they meet with the CSX rail lines. From there the towpath continues on to South Cumberland and the rail lines eventually veer off and head east.

This photo was taken from just under the cross town bridge where I68 crosses Cumberland, MD.
