Heron Tanker Truck Reflection

Another shot of the rusty and crusty collection of vehicles at the Blue Heron. This is the fire tanker that caught my eye as we pulled into the parking lot. When we arrived, I walked up close to the beauty and shot close ups. The texture of her battered hide was what interested me. The mix of fading colors and the subtle touches of style from a time long ago. In stepping back to allow one of my buddies an angle on this beast, I noticed the puddle off to the side and saw the reflection. Perfect!


It was one of those fun little moments you you realize your excitement had gotten the better of you, and it would do you well to slow down and take notice of all that is around you before you miss something grand.
