Weekend Travel: Port Hope

On a visit to the town of Port Hope, in the Northumberland County of Ontario, i became fascinated by the many trains passing by that i saw while driving. This interest of mine led me to journey further afield and capture these images.

This is a part of the train system operated by the Canadian National Railway Company (CN) for some of its freight trains.

Located in the town of Port Hope, Ontario this is a rail viaduct that allows trains to go over the Ganaraska River and the many streets below it. It is apart of the same length of track as the above picture.

In this photo one can see all the transportation links that criss-cross in such a small area and in a fairly small town.

About The Pal Guy

Ever since the moment I got my first camera I was bit by the “shutter-bug”. My love of nature has become a constant theme of my photography along with architecture, sights and destinations.

  1. The viaduct shot is great.

  2. Your first image evokes a longing and sadness; that said, it also makes me think of pain, as in my knees hurt just thinking of kneeling on those tracks! Altogether beautiful shots though!
