Here's a long-exposure of a Metra BNSF train around Downers Grove. I think the photo is very visually stunning and has lovely elements in it such as the train's headlamp's light trail, the stars in the background, and the greenish glow, which emanates from the illuminated windows of a BNSF Metra train. That photo was taken with a Canon 30D with Sigma 18-200 62 mm lens at ISO 400, f7.1, and with a couple seconds exposure.

This is a photo I took this summer while traveling with my mother in the Lyngor Fiord, Norway. We crossed by this boat going in the opposite direction and I had just a second or two to get the shot. I LOVE the dichotomy of the modern father shuttling his children in an ancient wooden boat!
