    Well, here is my diorama. Fortunately I did complete it in time for the diorama competition, but unfortunately I did not get pictures in time :(

    Here are a few pictures for your perusal anyway... They are - An overall "eye-level" shot, a close up of the rock face, and a shot of it on my picnic table on the back deck.

    I must say that the natural light goes a long way to improving the look of the work and the photos!

    Nice job Andrew!!! Natural lighting really makes a difference doesn't it? But where's the train? I think that diorama would look even better with the front end of a (insert favourite engine name here) coming into view.

    Andrew -

    Very nicely done! The first photo blends in well with the 'natural backdrop' of your yard. Nothing against Val, but I think it looks better without a train. It seems to have a timeless and serene feeling.

    Thanks everyone! I will give Val's suggestion a try - it didn't occur to me at the time. I was just happy to have it done! ;)

    Looks like a great spot for a picnic and some railfanning, Andrew.

    Can you get LPB railfans? WIth cameras around neck, and stuff? so they can :wave: at the passing TOOTs? :)

    Woodie -

    I am sure that LPBs can be found that fit the decription... I have an old one-page scratch building article from an RMC that shows how to build an "O" scale telescope for your miniature railfans... ;)
