Shaded Equinox Light


Here is my "shadows" shot. This shot was taken from Waterford Ave grade crossing on the south side of Milwaukee, WI. This grade crossing is at the crest of hill which trains must climb coming out of Milwaukee. However CSX units usually don't hang out in Milwaukee. However recently this train #488 has been making appearances with CSX power on its way to Chicago.

This shot was taken on June 21, 2003 the longest day of the year. So the shadows cast are the lastest ones possible. We usually try and make a day of it on the Equinox.
