Roaring out of Ouray


Sorry about the flare, not technically the best photo, but I enjoyed seeing,and hearing this. Taken early one morning in Ouray, Colorado. High in the Rockies. U.S.A.

What a fun bit of Americsna to catch and share with us, Frank. I'm actually grinning from ear to ear. smile The flare is not a detriment to this image in any way, IMHO.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ginnie,it does add to the nature of the shot I think,it was just literally a snap shot as it passed us.
I like the hazy quality to this shot, Frank; I think I'd love the sound of that engine smile
Frank L Croston.: I did,Martin,breaking the silence of the early morning,very loudly! Thanks.
Still a nice capture Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Aderonke.

They don't do "small" or "understated" over there, do they? Did you notice that all their trucks look fairly similar? I hope everyone in the antler Motel is already awake.
Frank L Croston.: They certainly don't, I was impressed with the look of lots of the trucks,they seemed to take a lot of pride in them. If they weren't awake, then any moment now! smile
Nice one Frank - the sun did a gotcha there!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom,I so wanted a shot of this,and the sun was rising over the hill and rooftops,I think I just got away with it.
What a great truck, I can almost imagine the roar it would make setting off. Re your exchange with Elizabeth re trucks and trains, you do realise Cosford is only a short drive from the SVR.at Bridgenorth if your staying in the are, just thought you might like to know that smile
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it,Brian, it must be quite a job driving this and the looooong trailer it had, on the mountain roads, I didn't know that,lets not mention it for now,know what I mean? smile

That is some truck, it looks as if it would be rather noisy
Frank L Croston.: It is,it was...smile You say that as if it was a bad thing, Anne...smile
I can live with the flare. I like the rig but I like the building behind more
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Bill,there were a few nice buildings here.I was stood outside the opera house! smile
There's power in that truck Frank and you captured it in low gear climbing the hill... the flare doesn't take anything away from the shot....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Plenty of it,Peter,he was just turning out of a side street with an even steeper hill,thanks.
