Right Place at the Wrong Time
Author: TexBob

After a 4-hour wait last night at one of the few places in Houston proper that are open enough to set up my lights,
KCS 4006 leads the MSZSH by me at 2120, moments after the skies let loose with a 15-minute downpour.

Thanks to a small 15x15 board that I just happened to have in my car, I was able to shield the front of the lens to get this shot.

It was raining so hard, and I was so wet, that I didn't even bother running to retrieve my lights. Adding insult to injury, I had left
my car door window open because it wasn't raining when I stepped out of the car as the train got close. Adding even more
insult to the injuries, once I got everything stowed in the car and on the way back home, the rain let up to a sprinkle.

Be glad you have rain.

Pretty epic lashup and image. I'd say worth the hassle. Thanks for getting drenched!

What kind of lights do you use, that would make them "expendable"?

Did someone put 2/3 of the nose herald on upside down?

$150 for each Yongnuo flash & Vello radio receiver set x 5 that I had out is definitely not expendable, for sure!

Great Picture!  This should be photo of the day!  I think the rain makes the picture extra special.
