Tried to capture the lunar eclipse, but there were too many clouds, so a train as alternative.

I showed this picture to my husband (a train-lover). His first word was, "Cool!" I think I'm going to have to keep him away from my camera and the train tracks now...

Obvious use of a tripod, or any other long-term stabilization tool (1-10 *is not the score of the shot though*): 8
If it was a very fast moving train, it would be quite possible to get this handheld. Maybe a little longer exposure time showing the lights streaking further down the track.

Kind of a cool effect. I'm a bit confused by the red/green lights. Seems like the track this train is on has the green! But that may just be an optical illusion.

Obvious tripod use: High.
