Rick D General Thanks... Very difficult photo to catch. In 13 years, have only been in a position to do this one time. Requires parking a half mile away, and running out onto the Hwy 69 bridge just to catch the tain alone, not to mention the luck of a crossing tow boat. I had no idea the tow was coming until it went under me. Pure luck this day. 10/16/2016 9:01:07 PM
Tom Dethmers General Great shot, one of the best I have seen after looking at thousands of them. 12/28/2016 4:34:05 PM
Tom Beckett General Excellent shot. One of those "you just gotta be there at the right moment" shots. I can appreciate the effort, especially the going out on the bridge part-a lot of them don't have good shoulders(or any), and you take your life in your hands to get it. Because of that, you can't really stake out the shot, either, since hanging out on the bridge will get you A) hit by a car B) police attention, neither of which is desirable, and will probably cost you the shot. Well done. Home page 08-19-2017 8/19/2017 3:26:24 AM
