Small tunnel on CSX tracks next to James River between Buchanan and Arcadia, Virginia. Was on a canoe trip down the river and stopped at the tunnel (I'd heard about it, but never seen it). While we were there, a train happened by... Good karma! :-) I just wish I had a rapid fire mode, so that I could have gotten more shots!

Nice job with the desaturation, Rikki. It gives an almost antique feel to it.

I like the familiarity this brings. The lights really make the shot for me. WE can all relate to trains and this one coming out of the tunnel is symbolic on many levels. People can analyze train dreams all night long too... this is a classic!! Well done.
