Frank, it's nice to see a panoramic shot of your magnificent layout in the above photo.
Thank you, Arnold. I appreciate and enjoy your continued interest in and approval (even the hyperbole !!!  of my layout efforts. I must admit, it is fun hearing from you via your "Likes" and written replies.
I don't know where it all comes from in me, but I have often found myself really looking closely while driving (sometimes drifting a bit too close to the rumble-strips or shoulders) or hiking and devouring what I have seen and felt in the scenic world around me. Then, afterward, as the modeling of a vignette is taking form in front of me, I just apply a heavy dose of imagination and work until the result feels truthful.
