Railway

Westbound

DSCN1952.jpg

On a very hazy day heading westbound from Hope, B.C. on the Canadian National Railway main line. Hope being at the east end of the Fraser Valley tends to get a backup of the weather down in the valley. The wind blows all the Smog and Fog which hangs up on the Mountains at the end of the Valley.


Awaiting Orders

Low clouds on the mountains at Huntingdon/Sumas. Railcars lined up waiting their orders into the States.


Coming Down the Line

A CPR train rolling southbound into Huntingdon, in Abbotsford.  This black & white shot made with a yellow filter to bring out the ruggedness of the mountains, without which they faded away into the background.  I like this version best!


Missed the Train

Too late to see the train headed northbound from Huntingdon, in Abbotsford, B.C.  The Golden Ears Mountains are in the background.


Crossing

A crossing over the CPR’s main line in Maple Ridge with the Fraser River in the background.  I thought the colour of the sky and clouds was quite interesting.
