Silent Guardian by shenanigan87 Silent Guardian by shenanigan87
Main signal at Duisburg Central, displaying Hp 0 - Halt!

Another shot taken during my commute today. Kinda liked the unusual lighting, as well as the signal being in the dead center. Not to mention the snow that was falling at this point, and the DMU's red taillights to the left.

The weather was kinda extreme today... It was snowing all morning, then it turned cloudless while we were performing our experiment (thermoemission of electrons), and finally, amidst an almost epic sunset, another load of snow came down. It was snowing so much that I had to take shelter under the station roof, in order to avoid my camera getting too wet. It was very fascinating to say the least, all those different colours, the warmth of the sun, and how it disappeared all of a sudden, the severe snowfall that followed... I think the most memorable scene was going past the runway at Düsseldorf International. There was a large hole in the cloud cover, allowing a clear view of the red horizon, with millions of snowflakes whirling about. The runway was brightly illuminated, populated by bustling snow-clearing equipment with their flashing amber lights...

Simply magnificent! :nod:

As others have said, great colours and a cracking atmosphere, seems almost eerie to me at least. Awesome. :)

Hehe, thank you! It was in fact rather eerie, with the sun still shining, but snowfall becoming so severe that I had to retreat soon, for the sake of my camera.
