MNNR 316
Title:  MNNR 316
Description:  One of my favorite shots of the chase, just because of the deep feeling and texture that this shot represents. The deep sky color with a few stray clouds, and the wide angle encompasses the feeling of the interesection. Maybe a bit too artsy, I dunno.

Timewarp
Title:  Timewarp
Description:  What a refreshing (if you don't get caught in that smoke!) thing to document, as if time stood still for a good ten years. With the whole world changing drastically, its nice to be able to shoot a scene like this, although the ozone probably isn't extremely thrilled about this. Flags, Classic engineer pose, no ditchlights, and a nice mix of light effects (classlights, gumball), plus the ALCo patented smoke.
