Wow -- great picture.
I was actually wondering "what's taking him so long to grab those cups of coffee...it's chilly down here!". Oh, and btw, when I go fishing it's a great day for the fish. I donate a lot of tackle to the shoreline, as John can attest.
The old mill is a scenic favorite of ours. Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, I was by the mill and took some more pictures from another angle. Below is one of these.
Thanks guys. I appreciate the kind words. I will share some of the other photos later today.
Very nice. Norman Rockwell (ish) only with a camera.
Thank you. On a "great minds" track, I wondered what that pic would look like as a painting. Being totally incompetent with an artists brush, I envoked/provoked some software routines that gave the jpg an oil-painting look (done by electronically adjusting brush patterns, strokes, paint volume, smudging, etc.). Below is the result that I wasn't planning to post, since it was just artificial art.
I promise not to do this very often.
That's pretty good.
This is the mill in Leverett, yes? If you are over in Leverett again head down Rattlesnake Gutter Road, which I understand goes through a "glacial ravine". I bet it's worth a picture or two. There's an even larger glacial ravine nearby in Sutton -- Purgatory Chasm.
Hi John. I have not added much to this thread for awhile but today will make up for it. The sun was shining and the temps were in the low 60's so I got the bike and camera out for a nice 100 mile jaunt this afternoon. I first went to Salford to the Ont. Southland maintenance facility but there wasn't anything moving and nothing new on the "dead" track. Went into Ingersoll and nothing there either except a stop for fries from the chip truck. I wasn't euchred yet. A quick run down the road to Woodstock yielded the results I was looking for. I found the Ont. Southland power units at the old Canadian Pacific station where they had just left a string of auto racks from Cami for CP to take to their end destinations. This station/track area is where the CP Holiday Train will be stopping tomorrow evening for a short time before travelling on west to London and then to Windsor/Detroit and across some of the western states to rejoin with the rest of the train in Alberta. (Google CP Holiday Train for an explanation) My wife and I will be there to see it and take some pics as this stop will be a lot less congested than the London stop and much easier to get to as well.
I then went over to the CN/Via station to wait a few minutes for the westbound Via from Toronto.
Next came a pleasant ride to the London CP yard where I found two power units idling near the south fence. See how good I am being and not wasting substantial beer money to get train pics. Ha Ha...
A quick trip over to the CN yard gave me the opportunity to see a new mobile crane being unloaded from a flat car. ( I was on the property with permission !!! )
There were more idling power units and a pair of engines which were just starting to build a train to head out later. I watched him for about an hour shifting cars to various tracks and adding others to his consist. I was surprised to see a Providence & Worcester auto rack in the mix. First one I have seen in this area. It was a long way from home.
This eastbound Via tried to sneak by without me noticing but I caught him anyway.
With some luck I should have some Holiday Train pics to share tomorrow.
More great train pics, especially the one with two engines, the bike and a station!!! Thanks, Dave!!!
Seashore Museum Pics 13 - Last Passenger and Pic: Below is the interior of a 1924 Brill streetcar, taken when I was the sole remaining passenger in the car. Everyone else had gotten off to stay and pick pumpkins.
This is the last of the trolley pictures taken early fall.
Well, I am on popscycle's thread and commenting on another Inmate's post. Hopefully it will work out. As I bumble around on this advrider.com site I occasionally run across photos that describe our adventure riding lifestyle without words. In January we are going to do our best to provide some of these photos to the public for a minimal fee that we will share with the original photo taker. Hopefully we will catch some young folks that envision riding in their future to purchase these pics as printed posters, or as digital reminders of where they want to travel. Please PM me if you have the original pics and want to be part of this....
Beautiful! Maybe add a short video next time you are there....
Got this one for ya,, waiting at the Spokane River...
Nice picture Jim. Are they Can. Pacific locomotives?
As promised last night.
Hope these pics help get the Christmas Spirit going for you.
