Cajon Pass

The Tunnels

 
   
 

2002, Judd Spittler

An open hopper slowly vanishes into the darkness at the south portal of tunnel number two.  This is a shot that benefited quite a bit from some care in exposure.  The auto-exposure circuitry in a camera would have tried to over-expose this shot, brightening the dark colors and shadows.
