Ghosts of Coal Barons Past – West Virginia Ghost Town At Night!

Ghosts of Coal Barons Past (7344)

Night photo looking up at the enormous coaling tower, Thurmond (almost) ghost town, West Virginia. Once a prosperous town, the nearly abandoned town now has less than twelve residents. The trains still run there, though. Mike Cooper, Tim Little, and I needed to warn each other and be extremely cautious since the ghost town lays on a sharp bend, and trains seem to suddenly appear around the curve. I illuminated the walls during the exposure. Feel free to share using the “share” button here on Facebook, thanks!
Nikon D610/14-24mm f/2.8 lens, 3 minute exposure f/8 ISO 200. July 2017.
