Train Tracks in Namibia
Railroad line from Okanhandja, Otjozondjupa Province to Windhoek, Namibia. There is only one train a day that takes this route through the Namib desert which starts not far behind the town. There is a severe drought in the country and the grass is all dried out.
Although this is in Southern Africa, it could be anywhere in the world where a forlorn traveler is crossing railroad tracks in a desolate landscape at sunset. To me it has a Wild West feel about it.
