British Columbia

This derelict church, at the time undergoing restoration, is situated beside
the railway tracks of the Canadian Pacific Railway's Notch Hill Loop in the
Southern Interior of British Columbia.

Snow was falling lightly as a friend and I drove out there to shoot before the
restoration was completed. A train was sitting still, engines idling, behind
the church. As dusk fell the snowfall increased. We were about to leave when
the train Engineer turned on the headlights.

Beautiful moment capture perfectly, Peter. I though it was the sun rising. Lovely winter scene with a softness befitting a gentle snowfall. The small church makes for a wonderful subject. Great work. Vote.

How very cool - looks like a LOT of snow V

The light of the train really mimics the sun beautifully, if it wasn't for your
commentary I would have thought this was a sunrise shrouded in heavy snow.
Either way, a remarkable image Peter.
