summer night city: ghost train

A few minutes after the last pendeltåg (commuter train) from Märsta, another train appears. It doesn't have any passengers, doesn't stop at Rotebro station, just slows down a bit...

Kan höra tåget rusa förbi men också känna stillheten i sommarnatten när det passerat.
Det går som på räls!

By using right aperture you succesfully show the speed of the train. Great light too!

Ghosties... spooky!

I don't like it when the trains rush through the stations like that.

Very nice photo though. I like the "speed" effect.

Fortunately there was yet another train due in the other direction so the station remained open for me to shoot this one.

Stormel: I just can't get enough of that blue colour... :)

photoimagine: Just så, det gick som på räls. Inte ens en mygga störde friden men så är det ju en knastertorr sommar också.

Fredrik: Thanks, we're both lifetime members of that Nocturnal Blue Club of course!

Halcyon: This time it really didn't rush, just rolled by smoothly since it was catching up that last regular train immediately before it on the same track.

Thanks all for commenting!

Brr, very eerie Silverarrow/Kymlingen feeling to it...
