As far as the eye can see.......... by gigiflower

As far as the eye can see..........

It's Friday evening. Which means the weekend is here. Which means it's time for an early bbq with a glass of red wine. Or maybe 2 glasses. It means I can rest and relax. And prepare myself for the gruelling travel schedule that I have over the next 3 weeks. Spain, Korea and Sydney. Goodness me...........I'm going to need more than 2 glasses of red wine to get me through this!!! Enjoy your weekend my 365 friends :)
Outstanding processing, excellent shot...there's something about railway lines I think...and enjoy those reds (I know I am)
November 28th, 2014  
Enjoy your weekend. Ours is v busy! But it's only Friday morning...
November 28th, 2014  
@graemestevens Oh Mr Stevens, I do get a little bit excited when you give me a FAV. THANK YOU :)

@newbank Have a wonderful but busy weekend Ms Newbank :)
November 28th, 2014  
@gigiflower As long as you don't get too excited...
November 28th, 2014  
@graemestevens You have no idea what my hands are doing right now ;)
November 28th, 2014  
Sounds like s very busy schedule, better enjoy your weekend well :-)
Beautiful colouring and subject!
November 28th, 2014  
@overalvandaan THANK YOU Saxa - I'm dreading the travel!!
November 28th, 2014  
I just love this! The grunginess appeals to me. If you were closer by I'd give you a bottle of red wine that we made ourselves a few years back. Stocks are now running low but not going to repeat the process! Old adage of once bitten, twice shy!
November 28th, 2014  
Lovely lines and love the bridge
November 28th, 2014  
You have a great weekend too Sam. Hope there were no trains in sight for this shot! Great perspective. Hope you get to take a few shots in Spain and Korea.
November 28th, 2014  
@salza MANY THANKS Sally!!! I've just opened the bottle of wine that I will share with my husband and will think of you as I have my first sip!!!

@carlt Me too Carl, it was a beautiful bridge!

@bella_ss HAHAH I was *slightly* worried about a train coming........!
November 28th, 2014  
Just wondering if you need someone to help carry your bags? And I can help with the red too :) PS - I love railway lines too, and that's a great bridge!
November 28th, 2014  
Nothing like the CONVERGING lines of a RAILWAY! Enjoy your WINE, Sam, I'm having a BEER! Spain and Korea in just 3 weeks? You will be spending more time on a plane than on the ground!
November 28th, 2014  
Great shot Sam fav for me :)
November 28th, 2014  
@gilbertwood LOL Denise, it would be so much more fun if the travel wasn't for work!!!

@tomtom LOVE YOUR YELLING Mr ANDREW!!! I have calculated the hours in the air and the hours on the ground - and you are right! More time in the sky in economy, than on the ground having tapas in Spain and kimchi in Korea!!

@onlyme111 BIG SMILES Gayelene :)
November 28th, 2014  
Wonderful shot Sam. What job do you do that is making you do all of that travelling? No doubt you wl be taking your camera! Look forward to seeing your photos😀
November 28th, 2014  
@shepherdmanswife Thank you so much Chantal! I am a Sales Director with teams in 3 countries thus the travel throughout Asia. The Europe trip is a worldwide yearly leadership team meeting........such a long way to go from Australia for 3 days!!! I usually don't take my camera as I never get any time away for any type of touristy type shots. I have my phone with me tho ;)
November 28th, 2014  
wonderful shot, enjoy your weekend
November 28th, 2014  
@gourean You too Gourean! I was in KL this week............!
November 28th, 2014  
love your composition and processing, great shot. It is strange to hear you celebrating Friday evening when I have just got up and STILL in my dressing gown but the bread is proving as i speak. I want to get out to see the birds before lunch so hopefully some nice shots.
November 28th, 2014  
@pinkpaintpot I agree Linda - I'm in my summer PJs, watching the evening tv with my glass of wine :) Thinking about putting a load of washing on........but not sure I can get off the couch to do so!! Enjoy your day and I look forward to seeing some lovely birdies!
November 28th, 2014  
Well that sounds really good, enjoy your wine and couch slouching and enjoy your weekend too.
November 28th, 2014  
@pinkpaintpot Load of washing on Linda - I got up from the couch!!!
November 28th, 2014  
@gigiflower well done. I hope it wasn't to exhausting maybe you need another glass of wine!!
November 28th, 2014  
@pinkpaintpot lol lol please don't tell anybody Linda......just poured my 2nd and final glass ;)
November 28th, 2014  
I really love this image Sam, I am such a sucker for perspective. Perfect for B&W. Have a great weekend, I will be working hard, hope for a photo opportunity. Fav :))
November 28th, 2014  
@gigiflower sssshh! I wont say a word, I hope its a big one the final glass I mean
November 28th, 2014  
@hermann MANY THANKS Sally!! I just saw one of your photos of the mower - looks like you will be having a VERY busy weekend!

@pinkpaintpot no comment of course ;)
November 28th, 2014  
Nice leading lines. Enjoy your travel, Sam!
November 28th, 2014  
Great shot!
November 28th, 2014  
A classic shot.
November 28th, 2014  
Now its my turn!!! B&W Sam? Have you lost the plot entirely? Has Malaysia turned you to the dark side? You deserve to be depressed at work.
November 28th, 2014  
@graemestevens @gigiflower she does - she really does - and Miss S please - ladyees do not mention such things - horrified again
November 28th, 2014  
btw - I am in Sydney hahahahahaha
November 28th, 2014

November 28th, 2014

@cruiser Thank you Chris!
November 28th, 2014  
WHY IS EVERYONE YELLING IN THESE POSTS???? SERENITY NOW!!!!
November 28th, 2014  
@terryliv I LOVE YELLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
November 28th, 2014  
@gigiflower wow you must be totally shattered when you get home. All that jet lag! Well I look forward to seeing any phone photos that you might be able to click! Don't work too hard!
November 28th, 2014  
@shepherdmanswife TOTALLY shattered!! Takes me forever to get over it............Thanks so much for your kind thoughts :)
November 28th, 2014  
Really nice line to the horizon!
November 28th, 2014  
@crazypuce Very kind Linda!
November 28th, 2014  
@gigiflower 2 oh Sam - Graeme and I need to educate you hahaha
November 28th, 2014  
@annied yeeeehhhhh and when I have 3, I'm completely mental - quite possibly throwing up in the street. A very cheap drunk I am ;)
November 28th, 2014  
This is a fantastic shot. I love the processing.
That sounds like a lot of travel. And don't drink so much that you forget to vote tomorrow:)
I am very jealous of the wine. The wowsers at head office ask us to have 0.00 bac on shift. The nerve :)
November 28th, 2014  
@karlow75 oops sorry I FORGOT TO YELL 😄
November 28th, 2014  
@karlow75 Mmm, yes the nerve of the Head Office folk! How dare that they want you heroes to be sober when attending an our of control fire! HAHAH and THANKS for the FAV and of course the YELLING!! LOVE IT!

November 28th, 2014  
@karlow75 haha imagine expecting 0 alcohol when driving a fire truck - the nervevof some bosses
November 28th, 2014  
@gigiflower @karlow75 I cleaned up up a bottle of white and can still type haha - can I drive the fire truck lol?
Jeadphones in listening to my music now
November 28th, 2014  
Brilliant shot, love how you are led right into the picture. Your life sounds even more hectic than mine. I am not travelling though, done enough of that over the years.
November 28th, 2014  
@annied haha, sure, what could possibly go wrong? I can't think of a thing :)
November 28th, 2014  
@annied You may be able to type Ms Annie - just not very well.........! What are jeadphones?????? heheheh

@onewing Too kind Babs - I think your life is WAY more hectic than mine.......you are busier than me and retired! You are supposed to be relaxing aren't you?
November 28th, 2014  
@annied oh and I know 0 bac indeed :)
November 28th, 2014  
@karlow75 well it is a worry I cant spell headphones but I shouldn't need those in the truck ha ha
November 28th, 2014  
@gigiflower they are exclusive headphones made of denim
November 28th, 2014  
@annied HAHAHAHAHA excellent response ;)
November 28th, 2014  
@onewing hey Babs
Hope you are well :)
November 28th, 2014  
@gigiflower wine makes you clever lol
November 28th, 2014  
@annied I need to drink more then ;)
November 28th, 2014  
@gigiflower ha ha ha
November 28th, 2014  
Wow that is an intens schedule! Love this shot with the comp in the middle and the Railway leading you in! fav!
November 28th, 2014  
What a great shot, and so different from most of yours. The bridge and processing turn an ordinary train tracks shot into a journey into the unknown.
November 28th, 2014  
Happy (and safe) trails! This is a perfect photo for your impending trips. Where does it go? Maybe we should start a "Where's Sam" discussion!!
November 28th, 2014  
Nice one Sam! Again!
November 28th, 2014  
@annied @gigiflower I didn't want to imagine so I went out for wine. And lots of it.
November 28th, 2014  
Brilliant, big fav.
November 28th, 2014  
You must feel as though you're permanently living out of suitcases! May the next 3 weeks pass quickly and you can relax, with more red wine and enjoy Christmas. About the photo, it really appeals to me. It hints that travel for pleasure is always a possibility. I like the way the track is framed by the bridge. Fav
November 28th, 2014  
Great POV and lines, nice b&w
November 28th, 2014  
Enjoy the wine, great shot
November 28th, 2014  
wow so awesome love the lines
November 28th, 2014  
Fa-fa-fa-fabulous capture (sorry, I almost lost my speech...) Love the composition and leading lines. Great processing and capture. FAV.
November 28th, 2014  
Great leading lines, depth, textures, comp, fav
November 28th, 2014  
I'm having a glass of red myself tonight. Love the lines and b&w.
November 28th, 2014  
Good metaphor for your up coming travels.
November 28th, 2014  
Great shot! Love the composition, softness and sepia :)
November 28th, 2014  
Stunning leading lines. Big fav
November 28th, 2014

Great processing and DOF! Spain, Korea, Sydney... Sounds amazing! Have a great trip! I can't wait to see photos!
November 29th, 2014  
Love, love, love the pov and the sepia tones you chose! Awesome shot, and man, with all that traveling, I hope you have some time for picture taking!!!
November 29th, 2014  
Great shot and processing Sam! Hope you manage to squeeze in a bit of fun during all that work travel

@harbie MANY THANKS Harbie!

@philipmad1 THANK YOU Philip - it certainly is a train line that is used but it is somewhat in the Countryside so the trains would be more infrequent than frequent!
