The Marvels of Transportation

This is the second image I am posting from the E-M-F car tour through scenic Lancaster county. The group made a planned stop at the Strasburg Railroad were they were treated to a special tour of the working railroad shop. The railroad welcomed the entourage of drivers and their antique cars with open arms and provided them Vip parking near the station. This image is the result of me climbing on the roof of my truck, setting up my tripod, and waiting for the train to pass behind the cars as it returned to the station.Passengers returning on this particular train not only enjoyed a tour through the scenic farmland but they also had an opportunity to walk around these special cars after they disembarked from the train. Sometimes gaining a little height can make all the difference in getting a shot and this was one of those times.

    • Hey thanks.Sorry you missed it. I had to shoot numerous exposures to get some frames without people being in the way. I actually was glad that car was backing in on the bottom left to help balance out the composition.Its tough to know were to position yourself when shooting on your roof and your trying not to interrupt traffic in a parking lot.I need a permanent telescoping pole I can operate from the drivers seat.
