Difference of Seasons: July versus January—Two Views.

Here are two views of the same train: led by the same locomotive, at the same location, more or less at the same time of day, exposed using the same camera with the same lens.

Both photos show New Engand Central job 608 led by GP38 3845 working northward in the morning along Plains Road in Willington, Connecticut (south of Stafford Springs).

Photos were exposed digitally using a FujiFilm XT1 with 27mm pancake lens. The slight difference in angle may be attributed to the inconvenience of a mushy snow bank along the road in winter view that was not a problem in the summer.

  1. I felt that the color temp and overall exposure adequately represented the time of day, which was just before sunrise.

    I am surprised that you did not correct the colour on the winter scene photo. To my mind, it is just too blue. Otherwise two grat shots

    There are some great locations for perfect pictures in New England. The partly unfenced lines offer so much compared with “These Islands”, as we must now call them.
