All revved up...well almost (7/365)

Day 7: Okay, so after wandering all over my house yesterday for my Day 6 shot, I wanted to venture out to take my Day 7 shot. I attempted some motion capture shots of traffic just before sunset. After not getting anything worthwhile, I decided to take a photo of my tachometer's needle as it raced toward redline. Sounds easy enough. However, I learned that my car apparently has some sort of fuel cut-off if it's in Neutral or Park and the engine speed surpasses about 5,000 rpm or so. The alternative would be to race to redline while my car was in Drive. Luckily for the motoring public, I decided discretion was the better part of valor and settled on this capture.
