Seis de Mayo – NR2 and its reflection


Check off another one from the backlog – this time from the sixth of May.  Getting closer to this week!  Another quick one with a couple stops, but both spots I shot at gave up some really nice reflections of the passing train!

I managed to catch a rather short P&W NR-2 at the little tidal pool near milepost 7 in Ledyard, and again down at the USS Nautilus overlook park in Groton.  With the calm winds, both places had water like glass, giving some really nice reflections.  Not much else to say, except enjoy!
