David Abeles's Collection
Welcome to David Abeles's Railroad Picture Archives!

Front Page Pic Welcome to the RRPictureArchives.NET contributor site of David Abeles.  

Thanks for stopping by! I've been actively making images of railroads for more than 21 years now, but I've loved the railroad for all of my 36 years. As time goes on, I will be adding some selections to this site. The underlying goal in my photography is to capture the majesty and fury of modern railroading, using available lighting and scenery to create an image that evokes in the viewer the sort of feeling I have when making the image. In many cases challenging lighting conditions add to, rather than detract from, that goal; therefore, you can expect to see a variety of lighting in my images.

Older images will be added as scanning resources allow. New images are added courtesy of my Nikon D90 system, and I'm finding there is always more to learn!

Take a look around--there are albums portraying the scene from the Northeast USA to the West, even over to China! Thanks for your support.

You may browse my collection of pictures via the menu located on the left hand side of the page.  I hope you enjoy the collection and thanks for stopping by!
