Scenes from the Train

When I am on the train, I often see scenes that I wish I could photograph – but the scenes flash by in the moment it takes the train to pass them.  Here are a few memorable scenes from today’s train ride from Kaunas to Vilnius.  I hope you can picture them from the descriptions.

A young deer bounding into the forest
with its white tail raised like a flag.

A group of about 10 people, bundled up in warm coats,
gathered around a flower-covered grave site in a cemetery.

The wide expanse of a snow-covered lake blending
into the solid white of the cloud-covered sky.

Tiny streams that break through
the snow and ice at the edge of the forest.

A black dog standing watch in a village street
as the train passes.
