My all time favorite shot
Title:  My all time favorite shot
Description:  My favorite shot, ever. Period. Nothing can replace the feeling of standing on an open grated bridge as a steam locomotive races towards you. I snapped this shot, then jumped out of the way so I wouldn't get smoked. Of course, the guy to the left of me runs around behind me and jumps right in. I guess it was a once-in-a-lifetime chance, and the ultimate souvenir.
