really liked the morning shots, tasty light. Enjoyed the variety of angles and locations throughout town, excellent work. Bet that truck got a workout :)

the shots by the station were prettywell shadowed so I moved around quite a bit.
Story about the truck I got to take it in for some brake work so I was pretty concerned about it Saturday.
Got to use the Explorer Sunday :D Comfort ride

i can imagine that the sun would be pretty low this time of year, and lots of trees and wires around the station area. Rural areas are definately better for this time of year...hard to do here around GR to find nice wide clear areas near the tracks to allow the sun in.
