Keep Clear

When the warning lights flashed at the intersection I cut the engine, adjusted the camera settings, opened the sun roof and used the top of the car for an impromptu tripod.

(It was a lucky shot.)

is this a tractor trailer spinout?

Oh you know I love this for many reasons. Motion blur is one of my favorites, combined with your magic of night photography and WOW!!

CRAZY TRAIN perhaps?

I never thought to do this. Thanks for the idea. I'll have to try it sometime. Great shot.

Nice to see something good come of this at-grade crossing.

I can almost hear the train whistle!

Thank you for taking me on these night prowls that so represent freedom and discovery, the ones I would have taken myself when I was younger and flush with curiosity, but didn't because... my Dad would have killed me.

I'd say "a very quick reaction in anticipation to a soon to be dramatic shot" rather than "lucky".
