Desolation? Not for me.
1. The row of "crosses" along the top. Fence posts or whatever they are, they look like crosses to me which reminds me of religion/God and that gives hope.
2. There is something white at the "end" of the tracks. No clue what it is, but for something to be there suggests company possibly, at least it suggests that you aren't alone.
3. The sharp turn leads my eye straight out of the pic. It is too soon, too much in focus.
I do love the slightly foggy mist and the b/w conversion.
