I often take pictures of scenery similar to that in my fiction. Grain elevators feature in Demise of a Devious Suspect, and I have dozens of single and multiple silos.
Because I could not travel to Garrett County, Maryland as I wrote the Family History Mystery Series, I'm especially thankful to have photos of that area. Even more so to have captured images from the trains, since they traverse areas I can't travel by car.
Some of these are in Maryland, others may be in West Virginia. There are no state line signposts among the trees.
You can't jump out of a train for close-up photos of flowers. My guess would be this is a form of clover or perhaps sulfur cinquefoil, a perennial almost considered a weed.
This gives you a sense of how close the railroad tracks are to the rivers.
I'm still hopeful that 2022 will let me travel to Maryland as I write book four of the series.
