|A very early spring scene that changes daily, April 17, 2017 just east of Komoka, Ont. I will see how it looks next week when heading up to the lake once again.
As it turned out both trains arrived at the crossing at about the same time not giving me much time to set up or think about a view. I went for a view of the EB over the fence which is low down in this location and including the sign marking the sharp curve in the road ahead. The light was best for this train also. I thought this turned out to be a good looking view for a scramble shot. I actually was in flip flops in the muck and brush to boot. As I drove away I realized spring scenes like this with almost no foliage and greening grass is something I have not seen modeled. Early Spring is actually a neat season. It is a bright and colourful season, a fresh look after long winters that one could have fun modeling. It also is a very short season with daily changes. Budding trees, bright green fields with a touch of brown areas, dandelions and fruit tree blossoms...a interesting prospect for a modeler and worth thinking about...George Dutka
