Suicide shot by DragonWolfACe Suicide shot by DragonWolfACe
WM 734 is about to enter Brush tunnel at Corriganville, MD during a Carl Franz fall 2012 photo charter. This is nicknamed the suicide shot because, well, Im standing in the gauge as 734 is about to enter the tunnel. They would pull into the tunnel, stop 10 feet before the photo line then back out.

This reminds me of all the great cinematography behind Pentrex videos. What a great shot!

I would say that this is deserving of a DD. Unfortunately, the community volunteers disagree with me.

You've really got to trust the crew, then! Shot's pretty much worth it, though :-) Nice colours!

good photo! At first I thought the name referred to the railway tunnel scene in Atlas Shrugged.

It really looks like a train from hell, even if not considering the danger of taking the shot itself.

Wow! This is an incredible photo! Can I maybe use this photo for a video on youtube, please? I'll write your name in the description and also your link if you want. I would be relly happy if I could use this picture. It's a music video with the music from the german horse show "Apassionata". The track is named "Train into the distance". :) And when I uploaded the video I'll give you the link as well.
