Freight Train 1

Sunday, February 11 2007 | 20895, Kensington, Trains

CSX freight train. Nikon D200 5secs f8.

I was taking a few nights shots of Kensington station when I heard a freight train approaching. I set a 5 second exposure and hoped for the best. I was able to capture a couple of frames that I liked the look of but it was starting to get cold and I didn’t fancy waiting for the next one to try again. I will wait for the weather to improve and try again.

Great motion shot!! Looks kinda dangerous.

At first, I thought…WOW, he climbed over the fence to take this photo. Then I saw the seats on the railing. Phew!!!

The image was taken from the platform of the commuter station. I didn’t think it would be a problem till the the engine passed and the shock wave hit me. Nothing to bad but for a second I was wondering if I was going to have a problem.
