Lightning at the Interlocker (2 of 3); Albert Lea, MN

After a quick storm chasing expedition with Emily, we found ourselves in Albert Lea on our way back home. After remembering that there's an old interlocking tower in town, I figured it would make for some interesting foreground clutter for some lightning shots.

 

The camera is setup on a tripod on a grade crossing in the middle of the ICE/CP Jackson Sub. The UP Spine Line can be seen going across the image. This is a 15 second exposure, no Photoshop trickery required.

 

How many interlocking towers remain in MN?
