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 [...]
