Great Shot! So how flat IS your camera?

Wow - that's one of those rare instances where the photo looks as good or better then the thumb! Perfectly captured and framed.

What a wonderful angle! I particularly like the fact that you shot it from the shade side, which gave you that wonderful, rose-colored side light between the rails.

The amount of creativity expressed in this photograph is beyond words. Incredible work Andrew.

More wonderful work Andrew, well done! How many shots did it take to get this one right?? :)
Posted by Jason Myers on December 5, 2007 
Now that is a cool shot! This has my vote! How in the world did you get it with out getting hit?

Great job. Simple subject.....but WHILE RUNNING! Super job, however you got the camera over the side and triggered. Radio remote control on camera? It's nice to see a really different angle like this. Congrats and thanks.

I'm guessing he had the camera on a tripod and held the tripod upside down. Still a tricky shot.

Andrew your photography continues to amaze me. Keep up the good work my friend.

This is really an awsome picture, to say the least. But could you tell us just how you took this picture? You have a definate PCA vote from me.

Erick is the winner! I put the camera on my tripod with the camera strap fastened under a crank on the tripod so it would not hang down. I shook the tripod over a cushioned bench in the caboose to make sure it could handle being upside-down. I set the exposure to Tv @ 1/30 and one stop underexposed. Since I do not have a cordless-remote shutter release I put on the 10 seconds self-timer and set the focal length to infinity. I held the extended legs of the tripod from the platform of the caboose and held it as steady as I could. Once I heard the shutter, I quickly raised the camera to check the image. It took a total of 9 shots to get both wheels in one shot at 17mm. Thank you all for the comments and kind words!

Nice work, Andrew.

Completely and utterly wonderful Andrew, probably one of the simplest, yet most dramatic railway photographs I've ever seen!
