Sunset Crossing

This mural is so high up, it was almost a no shoot.

Sunset #6

It didn’t seem to matter when I went, the sun was always a challenge.

  1. They are really great murals.
    A train like that is a true adventure. Was it a train like that you went on through Canada’s wilderness. What was the name of the distance you drove on, Resa?
    Sorry for taking up another subject but I cannot forget the train journey you told me about ❤ 🙂

    1. Hanna! ❤ xo
      It was a modern train, with wifi and red wine and a meal on on a china plate & real forks and knives! I had my own window & my own huge seat with way more than enough leg room. Business Class on VIA Rail is amazing,
      Thing is, I took a train route that stops in some very small towns, so I think it is not the regular, faster run track. It normally takes about an hour less on that route.
      There is some 50 miles of extremely wild terrain about 1 hour out of Ottawa on the way to Toronto… you know the story.
      As a person who loves wilderness, you might like Canada. We still have a lot left. North into the Canadian Shield, there is no manicuring… beaver dams abound … flies and mosquitoes as big as in nightmares, impenetrable woods… and beauty of a third kind many could never imagine.
      Let me tell you about how amazing the train through the Canadian Rockies is, sometimes! 😀 😀

      1. Thank you for your highly entertaining answer Resa 🙂 ❤
        I've googled the railway from Ottawa to Toronto, and it seems to be very beautiful. It is deeply fascinating to check the times for tomorrow. I wish I was in Canada 🙂
        During the summer there may be some repairs of the railway network near Ottawa. Just to insure that the train doesn't fall off the rails 😀
        Wish you a most enjoyable week ❤ xo

  2. A really detailed, exciting and adventurous painting dear Resa. I am so pleased that you managed to eventually take the photograph and show us the result. Big hug. Love Ralph xoxox ❤ #<

  3. The sun is the bane of the photographer, I totally agree with that. Perhaps it is just for us mural hunters that the sun has a vendetta against. It is an interesting choice, placing it so high.

    It’s a nice piece of nostalgia, a time when the railway was the hub of the community before cars and lorries took over.

Speak your art mind!
