Sometimes the best photo opportunities happen when everyone else is at dinner.
Last Friday I had an errand on the station platform at Killarney, County Kerry that kept me there late.
For a few minutes the sun colored the sky in shades of yellow, orange and magenta.
I made these views using my Lumix LX7. They were the best photos of the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland’s train that I got all day!

At the end of the day (really!), Mike Gardner and I were waiting for Amtrak’s westward Lake Shore Limited (train 449) at the grade crossing in Westfield, Massachusetts (milepost 107).
Shortly before the train came into view the sun popped out of the clouds just above the tree line and illuminated the scene with golden light.
I popped off a couple of color slides and some digital images.
For the digital I made a last minute exposure adjustment. I didn’t have that luxury with the slides, but my film camera was set within about a half stop of the ideal exposure.
We’ll have to wait and see if my slides are ok. Or not.
Exposed using a FujiFilm X-T1 fitted with a 27mm pancake lens.
