Today was another snowday. It did not snow much but just enough to create some interesting textures. I would have liked to see a little more snow to create a stronger contrast but I am happy with the final result of this landscape. The emphasize should be on the track of course so I made a dark print with almost no texture in the background. I was inspired by the landscapes of the Chech-French photographer Josef Koudelka, who published a great portfolio called Chaos with very graphic black and white panoramic images from mainly Eastern Europe.

Always am intrigued with black and white track shots. Symbolic of our own life journeys, leading to unknown destinations.
Repeatedly return to my Koudelka's book on Gypsies.... raw, stark and forcing the viewer to delve into the content.
Thanks for referring to him, Mike, as well as for your excellent photo.
