I was listening to a song by Enya the other night while modeling. That song, "Evening Falls", begins with the line: "When the evening falls and the daylight is fading ..." For some reason, that provided me with an idea for this month's Gallery Theme.

When "Evening Falls" -- that time of the day that begins when the sun is low, and shadows are long; and extends into the time when we lose the sun's light and darkness takes over.

So, let's post pictures, either model or prototype, that captures that time of day.

Our themes often allow us to just sort through our photo collection and post our favorite shots. Some of us might have some shots already saved that qualify for this month's theme as well. However, I hope that this theme will send you down to the layout or diorama with camera and lights in hand to play around with low-light photos. Have fun with the topic -- I know I will.

As always, please adhere to the following posting requirements: photo files should be no more than 80kb @ 72ppi in size - even if downloading from a remote server or website - and can be no more than 7 inches in width (to prevent viewers from having to scroll back and forth to see the entire photo or read text on the same page).

Photo submissions not meeting the above requirements will be resized by the Moderator.

I thought that I would start the month out with an early evening shot.

Another great theme Bruce. I will have to head down to the layout today and snap some "dusk" photos.

Ohoh make room for Eddie (Landreth). His night scenes are some of the best I've seen!

This should prove to be a very interesting theme, Bruce.

I love the challenge of making new photos, but I just folded up my pair of modules because I needed the space for something else. So I'll submit a few shots that I've taken in the past.

This one was taken on my Lomax Lumber HO scale modules, shows the enginehouse in the evening. That's a Jordan 15 ton Mack engine in the doorway. The critter sitting outside is a kitbash of an old Penn Line switcher body that I shortened the cab and added many details. It's powered by a PFM SPUD power truck. The enginehouse is scratchbuilt, board by board with a tarpaper covering made from some painted paper.

As usual, a great photo Bob. In particular, I like all the junk around the outside of the building.
The light that eminates from within the engine stall is enveloping the "new" engine, while the older stuff is resigned to the shadows. Quite story in that picture.

I posted this image in last months gallery, but it is better suited for this months subject.

I should have waited!

Wow! I go out for a while to pick up some chicken feed, and I come back to see some great photos.

Tim, Bob & Mike, great photos to illustrate this month's theme.
