    I like the way the tracks draw the viewer into the scene. The mist adds a nice touch. Good timing.

    This photo really draws me into it - I wish I could walk up the tracks and see what's round the corner. Great composition, detail and colour.

    I have tried to capture this seen many times, this morning the fog was in, by the time I got there and set up it had thinned but still had a presence, went all over the place with settings full manual, Aperture priority, white balance, ISO. This one was in full auto mode hence the open aperture. Just a few feet either way forward/sideways would change the entire scene. I use these tracks for access to a nature park entrance a bit farter around the bend. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    What are beautiful magical seen, would've been even more beautiful if the fog was a bit thicker, maybe if you were there earlier on :-) in my faves.

    I think I've seen this before but somehow it looks more attractive. I like the way the eye is led to explore.

    Really great light, and very nicely shot. A small point, but I wish the scene weren't so empty-looking; even a stone or a few larger leaves beside the the tracks lower right would help.

    Great image; well balanced; properly saturated colors and perfectly exposed. I find it holds my interest staring at it for an extended period. Well done!

    Beautiful shot! I love those tracks leading me to the bend and enticing me to explore beyond. (After just spending a few days uprooting ivy out of our garden and off the fence which it had destroyed, I'm surprised that I can still see the beauty, but I can.) In my faves.

    Charming scene. Why did you use such a wide f stop?
