One of my goals of late has been to shoot in less than perfect lighting conditions with the aim of going no higher than ISO250 at 1/500th... so dropping down to F4 and F2 is common on post-sundown shots or on cloudy days. In the former category, the eastbound eXpressway's departure out of Hornby usually has it through my neck of the woods in poor light on long summer days, so it has been a frequent target. The sets of SD's on it lately are a nice touch, too. Here, the soft dusk light reflects off the flanks of CP 6256 and 6249 at the west end of Cherrywood siding, barely into their largely nocturnal run to Montreal. 2043hrs.
