The second one isn't really abandoned, but i thought i'd put it in anyway. The first one is from Hunters Point in the Kipawa region. I took both during my canoe trip. If you have the time to read this i'm sure you have the time to post a comment. And to everyone else the pictures are especially good.

Almost always in the glass. Nikon and Canon are both excellent choices, both have pros and cons. Let's not start this here.

Went out on my front porch yesterday during the rain, came back with these shots. Large sizes here and here.

Snapped with quickly while on a ride this past Sunday.

The climb up follows what used to be an old railway grade when they logged the mountain in the early 1900's. At some point the railway was deactivated and turned into an gravel access road, no idea when but it must have been ages ago. The road got worse and worse, it was poorly built, it caused a number of rather large landslides down onto property owners below. Last winter we had some insane weather and some slides took out some buildings, forcing whoever owns the land that the road is on to basically push it down the hill! Now its a hard muddy single track climb whereas it used to be a way to climb up even if you were on a DH bike.

One neat thing from it all though is this bit of old railway that was dug up, complete with spike still in it.

I know, I was stoked!

I sat there trying to get a good photo of it that would make it stand out more but shooting out from the hill was not any better. I'll have to try again next time I go by it.

Hm, maybe try an angle looking up at it if you can and frame it against the sky or something where it doesn't blend in so much?
