My mission on this hot summer night was to catch the 1943 built M/V MISSISSAGI discharging a load of stone in Sombra, ON. Upon arrival I grabbed my camera and stepped out of the car and was immediately swarmed by about 1000 blood thirsty mosquitoes. Mission aborted and I started heading home to Point Edward via HWY 40. As I crested the overpass by NOVA's Corunna Site there was switcher NCLX 2003 bathed in light and all done for the night. I couldn't pass up this opportunity so I pulled over and set up for a few shots and thankfully there no mosquitos.

  1. Unreal to see this back in service after.. how many years parked at LDS? 8? 10? I thought it was done.

  2. Yes, I was surprised as well to see it leave LDS after a 2 or 3 month stay this year and most of it outside on the “dead” line.

  3. Thats a really nice shot. I do not know the area, but I sure know mosquitoes. Scary out there some nights. :o ) Again, I have to say I love this image.

  4. Thank you Sir.

  5. I should clarify. I do have shots of this thing buried in this plant over the last 10 years but 2003 seems to spend 95 percent of its life at lds…

  6. That’s very cool, Marc. Would be hard not to pull over after seeing that!

  7. Thanks Jamie, one failure lead to one success.

  8. Wow – spectacular lighting and colours! Beautifully captured, Marc!

  9. Thanks Peter.
