Nice set Jim,they came out pretty well considering the weather, at least, judging by the horizon, you are not suffering the mist that we have over here.
I only knew she would be leaving Toronto for Oshawa on May 1st at an unknown time, I figured she wouldnt arrive before 10.00am so I spent several hrs at Oshawa before I was able to get her proper arrival time, except for the dull and cold day it was worth it.

Nice series Jim. At least you could catch her away from the dock. I had to be satisfied with the ones I got from dockside |
