Default Thanks to Ben Sutton.

Having been inspired by Ben Sutton, among others, work at night, I decided to finally go out and buy a remote trigger, and get serious about night photography. This was the result:

I think it was a decent first attempt, and bigger and better things are on my agenda. Thanks for the inspiration Ben.

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Hahahaha, thanks. I don't have much night work, I think the real person to thank is Loyd and Chase. They're night work is far more extensive than mine. But thanks, though. Your shot is pretty sweet Max!

Night Photography is my anti-drug. The feeling you get from seeing a beautiful shot come from complete darkness (after a 30 second - 1 hour wait) is beyond words. Of course the opposite is true when you find out you boffed a shot after waiting a half-hour, but that's a conversation between me and the therapist...

good job, and welcome to the dark side.

I really like that image. The fog/haze in the distance looks nice and it's a well captured photograph. As Loyd said, welcome to the dark side!
