PROWLING IN THE DEPTHS - SIERRA TRAIN TUNNELS
This is a shot that we took of Moby up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, inside a old abandoned train snow shed near Donner Summit. This specific shot was actually taken at a point where the the snow shed transitioned into a tunnel burrowed into the mountain and so lighting was at a minimal.

Unfortunately, Union Pacific was in the process of installing gates to lock up these amazing and historical snow sheds and so, access to them in the near future will most likely be restricted. We feel fortunate that we were able to enter into them one last time and take this shot.

When you do the EVO high steer, the skid is an upgrade option. It is beyond bullet proof!

I had no idea what a snow shed was so I looked it up. Now I know.

Eddie,
How do the Platinum Burners do in the water?? I'm mounting two sets before heading out next week. They're cheap enough to replace, but that's gotta be a pain. Very cool photos.

They actually hold up just fine in water. Depending on how you wire them up, they're real easy to replace as well if needed.

Yup they do fine. I have had mine on for like 4 or 5 months now and have held up great. You should have checked them out on Saturday. Real easy to wire up too.
