Remarks & Notes 
It's raining cats and dogs, it's pitch black outside; time to watch a movie with the girlfriend/wife... NOT! With the aid of Ziploc bags over the flashes, here is MMA #1 flying by at 30 mph towards Montreal. Many drops of rain are visible because they reflect the light of the flashes! Many viewers had concerns for the crew being blinded by the flashes. Rest assured that no one was at risk during the shooting as the multiple flash setup had a minimum distance of 30 feet from any part of the train and are of the 4 "AA" batteries type (not the strongest), a distant lightning would be a fair comparison . In fact, the original picture was underexposed quite a bit, I had to correct it afterwards. To top it off, many MMA employees know me and what I'm doing. 15 seconds before the arrival of the train, I trigger my flashes manually to make my presence known... ;-)

A growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads in the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (I still find new "Lights In The Night"!)

For the train and storm chaser. Trains with thunderstorms, dark clouds, rain, lightning, hurricanes - tropical storms, funnel clouds, storm light, and rainbows.
