The scariest photo I have ever taken

    Newer Older

    Hey, I thought, I'll take a photo from the central reservation. You know the kind - a vanishing point way off in the distance. The cars and lorries screamed past me as I knelt with my nose to the ground. One slip of concentration on their part and I would be strawberry jam. It was pretty scary and I won't do it again!

      I like this..

      The low angle and the motion blurr on something that would be in motion looks effective

      : )

    16. Steve-h 91 months ago | reply

      It isn't actually motion blur - the tanker was actually doing about 50mph like all the other vehicles whizzing by on both sides of the road !!
