Re: Just A Few Photos From My Last Vacation

Nice series Mike.  The Falls shots and the shot of a train in a tunnel are my favorites

Re: Just A Few Photos From My Last Vacation

That "Glacial Potholes" is a very interesting formation. I've never seen anything like that before. I like it. Thanks for showing.

Cheers.

Re: Just A Few Photos From My Last Vacation

Wonderful photography as always Mike, light at the end of the tunnel (Train) was my pick - reflection on the rails makes it; all waterfalls top notch too good timing.

Re: Just A Few Photos From My Last Vacation

the area of Shelburne Falls MA is home to many of these glacial pot holes including the worlds largest known glacial pot hole.

That train in the tunnel wasn't planned, but being at the right place at the right time sure was great... i made a mistake, its the Hoosac tunnel, its 4.75 miles long (7.64km) when it was completed it was the second longest tunnel in the world (completed in 1875)

Re: Just A Few Photos From My Last Vacation

Nice series, Mike.

Are those the potholes in Shelburne Falls?

Bash Bish Falls are gorgeous in the fall, with all the leaves changing. Check it out if you get a chance.

Re: Just A Few Photos From My Last Vacation

Thanks David, not being from the area and not planning the trip to that tunnel opening we were just going to drive through the area and see what there was to see, a whole days driving and this was our last significant stop... well within 3 minutes of getting out of the car there came the train, had no idea it was going to be there.
