I Beat The Train! **EXPLORE**

Lightbox here: bit.ly/pdGVR1

 

Driving north, upon entering an intersection as luck would be with me the light turned green, when I noticed the tracks to my right & a moving train! Well now was my chance to drive just a “little” faster to make it up the road, over the bridge, turn around, find a safe spot to park & shoot the train! I did just that, although the parking spot was questionable, you all know what we must do to get the shot! lol. The bridge was a bit scarier than I thought as the barrier was lower & sloped, so to lean on it & stay out of the road with oncoming BIG dump trucks, I was nervous ( due to fear of heights) & must be crazy! But I managed to capture the train headlights & all. My next attempt will be that all famous low composition train coming at you around the curve shot... of course timing is everything!
