Remarks & Notes 
A thunderstorm that has blown in the from the east is sending reddish-colored lightning down to the ground right on top of the Sunset Route at the far eastern edge of Tucson. If memory serves me correctly, the exposure was made on either Fujichrome Sensia or Provia 100 at @ 3-4 minutes at f5.6. While the camera and storm were doing their thing, I was busy changing a flat tire.

Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen In Another Perspective!

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
