Rail Road Tracks - 11 photos with lines of steel

I love to travel around and one way to do this is by train. In stations I'm always fascinated by the lines and patterns that steel tracks form. In open landscape rail roads often create a mood of desire when they disappear somewhere in the far. Tracks can be smooth and straight but also curved and bumpy. When it comes to image composition one of the rules is to provide the viewer with guiding lines. Train tracks are an easy way to achieve this. So, for this month's gallery I'm presenting some rail road tracks from all over the world. Enjoy.
