A memorable train ride
|Spotting the front of the train through the window|
Here are a couple of photos that I took from the train. I'm not sure why, but the photos are so much more vibrant on my phone. It seems that as soon as I send them elsewhere, they loose their vibrancy. 😒
|The view from the train|
|I love the shadows cast by the train|
|That's me - proof that I was there enjoying myself|
When we got to Agawa Canyon, we had an hour and a half to walk around. The day was sunny with some clouds. It was perfect!
|Jeannine managed to take this picture without including all of the tourists!|
|My favourite photo framed by the red maple leaves|
|I love this one of Bridal Veil Falls in the background|
|Swaying pine trees, like in the Group of 7 paintings|
|A little bit of red to liven up the falls|
|I think that I love rocky streams as much as water falls!|
|Water cascading behind the foliage|
|Sun peaking out of the clouds|
|What an amazing reflection|

|Fabric stitched together for the base. The fun starts after that! 😊|
|Some very rough sketches and words to remember|
|Book with a woven binding - now a sketch book!|
- As I mentioned, I realised how much more vibrant my pictures are on my phone. I've tried all kinds of things but without success.
- I've looked at programs but although they say that they are free, they are not. If I'm going to invest, I guess that I'll have to do some research.
- The train trip was wonderful. I'm very glad that I did it, although I have to admit that I thought that it would follow Lake Superior for a while - but it didn't. The train goes much more into the interior of that area. I guess I'll just have to go back!
- I didn't bring my stitching on the train - it was too full, but I did make a few sketches. I started a meditation stitching project that will be partly based on my photos and sketches.
