A father with his sons spending time fishing the Grand River while a train passes over downtown Galt on a cool summer evening.
Gotta love these summer evenings. My summer routine allows me a few nights to try my hand at a photo from the north side of River Bluffs Park in Galt -  Bill Miller turned me on to this spot a few years ago and normally a couple trains was easy, four was a good night. Now if you get one, you are doing well - things really have changed on the 'ol CP. This was my fourth attempt this season, and my first getting a train before the sun sets for good. With this in hand any evening photography I do in August 2017 will have to be elsewhere - this sure is a keeper.

  1. Thanks Marcus. Lucky with the water being so low, not something you can normaly do there.

  2. Nice composition :)

  3. lol :) I think I may try my hand at Paris next. CP is just too slow traffic wise.

  4. Really? I thought once that sun starting to sink………it picked up speed. :o )

  5. Thanks guys!!

    Arnold, I had a good hour left. But I know better than to stick around… I left.

  6. Marvellous!!! First glance, I thought this was at Muskoka. :o ) The timing was good, it looks like another 10 minutes and you would have been out of sunlight.

  7. This is nice Steve. Interesting how much longer the NS 72xx locomotive is compared to the two CP SDs.

  8. Great catch Steve :)

  9. Very nice, Stephen.
