Description

A Meet on the Rockville Bridge - The Pennsylvanian, Amtrak's passenger train between New York and Pittsburgh, roars across the historic Rockville Bridge as it makes its way through central Pennsylvania. Led by GE P42DC 122 locomotive, the train passes a westbound Norfolk Southern freight train as it traverses the massive stone structure. The Rockville Bridge, built in 1902, is a marvel of engineering and a testament to the industrial strength of the region. With its towering pillars and graceful arches, the bridge spans the Susquehanna River and serves as a vital link for both passenger and freight rail traffic in the Keystone State. As the two trains pass on this cloudy day, it's a reminder of the important role that rail transportation plays in connecting communities and moving goods across the country.

I capture motion in my photography by using slower shutter speeds that illustrate the speed of gigantic trains as they move across the country. I experiment with new photo techniques, such as pacing trains with my drone.
