2018—Bridge to Nowhere

The rusted railroad trestle, its rails long since removed for whatever purpose steel was needed when the tracks were removed, spans the Palouse River but goes nowhere.  The ghost town of Elberton, WA has few remaining structures from its heyday when it had a flour mill and a sawmill.   A devastating fire in the 1930’s destroyed the town.  The bridge to nowhere now has a “danger, cross at your own risk” sign to warn of potential problems if one sets foot on the structure.

The rounded appearance is the result of using my DX 10.5mm fisheye lens on the D850, essentially turning the D850 into a crop frame camera.
