Somewhere between Guelph and Georgetown...

...the train passes through a tree-lined corridor with banks rising up on both sides of the rail. The individual trees that populate this stretch are quite tall and slender, but because they're so densely planted, an intense vertical pattern is created as the train whizzes by. It's especially interesting in the autumn when the whoosh of the train disturbs the fallen leaves, creating a cyclone of colour, or this time of year when the ground is covered in white. The thin silhouettes look like slash marks made with a calligraphy pen. I always make a point of raising my head along this stretch...it's always worth a look.
