Photo of the Week: rearviewstorm
It's hard to believe I took this photo on Tuesday evening. It feels like weeks ago at this point. I guess that's what happens when mother nature decides to drop the 3rd largest snowfall in the history of your city-- everything afterward feels just a bit different.
Anyway, I took this one on my commute home on Tuesday, just as Chicago Snowpocalypse 2011 was getting underway. It's the view out the back window of the Purple Line train I was riding. I took several versions of this that had just the glass pane and the L tracks running behind the train, but then this other train came into the frame going the other way, and I knew I had the shot I wanted. I love it when that happens!
If you'd like to see more of my snowpocalypse photos, I've created a set over at flickr. I expect that I'll still be posting photos of this for a few days to come.
Photo Details: Nikon D7000 w/ 16-85mm lens, 1/125sec at f5.6, ISO400.
