The 20th annual Bayview meet was a blast. From a social perspective, I learned a lot, and had fun. From a photographers perspective, it was for the most part pretty awful. Most of the trains came in backlit, overexposed or cloudy lighting. I attempted practically the same shot for Via 73 which passed a half hour earlier, but it failed as I was unable to get the camera to focus on the train instead of the leaves in the foreground. This did a bit of both, so I guess it worked out. It was really a hit and miss for shots. However, being successful at capturing a GP9u and a GP38-2W is all positives for me. In this case, this is CN 551 heading an Aldershot to Hamilton transfer. The power returned light about a half hour later. At that point, I had mostly given up on pictures as it wasn't going well, so I just enjoyed the social aspect of being there, and seeing some of my railfan friends again. After all, from where I railfan, there aren't many railfans to talk to.
