The Single Digit Stroll

The start of January 2013 brought some cold temperatures to Connecticut, and it also brought some vacation time to me.  On the third day of the new year – a day that started out with the mercury diving to about 5°F – I decided to head out for some train shooting.  And me being the [...]

A hike in the wind

What I’d do for my photography.  On Tuesday I had a small hole in the schedule, so I decided to head out for a nice, nearly mile-long hike along the Thames River to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2.  That was all fine and good, but I neglected to remember that we were coming off [...]

Hiking along the Thames

Last week I had a chance to not only get out and shoot for a bit, but I also worked a nice 1.5 mile hike in as well.  The only downside to that is I only got to shoot from one location.  But that’s OK – I think things worked out just fine at that [...]

11 days into 2010 – my first shots back home

We got back home from Florida early last week, but because of things around the house, I didn’t get out to shoot at all.  This morning, though, I finally got a chance to head out, and bagged Providence & Worcester train NR-2 at a couple spots.  I also got some dredging along the Thames River [...]

Sunny Tuesday Morning NR-2

Another sunny, but cold morning today.  Not quite as windy as it had been, but still pretty cold.  And there’s still plenty of the white stuff on the ground to make things look all nice and pretty.  So I had to get out this morning and see if I could get some shots in.  Well, [...]

Friday the 13th P&W

Back home today, from my 2 day trip down to New Jersey for work.  This morning I was able to get out for a nice walk.  I decided to mix things up and go a bit further north to the Stoddard Cove area, and hopefully catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 heading south along the [...]

NECR 610, and a combined P&W NR-2/NR-3 in the SUN! 4/20/07

Finally, some sun! The gloom of the past week or so has lifed, giving us a nice bright cloudless morning. So I took advantage of it, and took my walk in the Stoddard Hill area of Ledyard, and opted for a shot of Providence & Worcester train NR-2 coming south across Poquetanuck Cove in the [...]

The incredible shrinking P&W NR-2

The timing was on today aparently because I was able to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2 twice – once in the morning and once over lunch – with only a few moment’s notice. This morning was on the Ledyard/Preston town line at Poquetanuck Cove, and this afternoon was at the beloved Mill Cove in [...]

P&W NR-2 in Ledyard, CT and the reason why P&W is running to Willimantic

I couldn’t pass up a beautiful morning, so I ducked out for a few minutes to try to catch Providence & Worcester train NR-2. This time I headed a bit further north to the overlook on Poquetanuck Cove on the Ledyard/Preston town line. Not a bad view, and some sweet sunshine could make for some [...]
