Default Odds and Ends from August

The last Sunday in August, Juinor and myself decided to head South for a day. As is the norm, the weather forcast was for mostly sunny skys, which didnt work out so well. Heavy fog and mist was the rule until after noon, then the sun made a brief appearance. We started out on the NS, but with low traffic levels that morning, we found ourselves over on the CSX KD sub that afternoon. Here are a few from the day.

Looks like a pretty productive day once again. Awesome shots, EM. I must say though the best two shots are the first fog shot and the B&W by the church. Nice report.
