What's wrong with this picture?

A strange situation at Vickers, Ohio Oct 28, 2007: This NS freight, powered by CN 2603 and 5334, is just about to hit the diamonds as CSX 8741 and 7383 wait in the clear southbound. But why is the northbound CSX signal showing red over yellow for the northbound train behind me when the crossing is about to be occupied? (Yes, I made sure he wasn't moving!)
It's a red except that as it is in line with your camera more than the others, it is relatively over exposed. It has to be red as it is the bottom aspect of the lower signal head.
Thanks, but there are two problems. The train behind me started pulling on this signal, until the CN power popped into view, and the signal also showed yellow to the naked eye. Every other time, it's been red.
