Everything moves

Work train at California Avenue station in Palo Alto. It was late afternoon in December, rainy and very windy. A study in motion blur: the train is moving in one direction, the wind is shaking the trees in another, the clouds are scudding through the sky, and the streetlamp in the distance is vibrating. Even the wires sticking out of the ticket validation device in the foreground are wagging. I used a big, heavy tripod, so at least the camera was steady!

Shot with the Nikon D70s and the 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom at 44mm, ISO 400, f/13, shutter 1/3 sec. Exposure and color adjustments in Aperture.
