    72-Hour Challenge (18-21 Dec '12): Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    Hi guys,

    It's that time of the year when we travel to meet or escape with our loved ones. Let's see some interesting, moving, thought provoking, touching, and gosh darn beautiful pictures of transportation and people on the move.

    Remember guys, it's the journey.. not the destination :)

    The theme for this challenge is:
    Planes, Trains and Automobiles!


    discovery.

    Best of luck and have fun!

    ps: feel free to write title and/or caption to accompany your submission(s).


    72 Hour Challenge Rules

    As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72 hours. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her 72-hour challenge.

    For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own 72-hour challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up.

    At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a blue ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

    To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for "72-Hour Challenge: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles."

    This one is also from Alaska, taken in Moose Pass at a chance road-side stop. I asked to pull over for a photo and next thing we knew a float plane came in for a landing and an Alaska Rail train came roaring through the scene.

    GX1 + 14-140mm
