A lost battle

It was getting darker and darker. The clouds had finally won the battle with the sun. Only one bundle of rays of sunshine enlighted the forest behind the viaduct of Besnard. While I kept on hoping on some sunshine at the right time on the right spot, it soon became clear that the nice part of the day was over. The train to Paris passed in difficult light conditions, especially for a distant shot like this. The bright colors of the viaduct, and the grey train, luckily stand out in front of the dark forest in the background.

Lights out. SNCF’s 72147 hauls an intercités to Paris under a thick cloud cover. Longueville, 25.10.2015.
