Riding the Rails

The first railroad to connect the east and west coasts of Florida running from Fernandina Beach to Cedar Key.  This railroad is no longer used for commuters.  It does stay busy transporting goods and supplies to the local industries.


Original photo taken in Fernandina Beach, FL on Amelia Island.

Fun that you would turn to 'organic' as the texture for this as it appears Nature has taken care of that. lol! Nice rural shot.
