    Grand Canyon Railways Man v/s Machine event. Sept 24,2016

    This was a tough shot.

    One of the still photographers said they usually move along at a slow pace unless they wanted to make a statement.

    I saw the smoke way off in the distance and powered up the P4. Seems like it took forever to warm up and now wish they had a ground unit to keep it hot without killing the internal battery.

    Heard the photographer shout he is moving very fast and I barely made it into position. This was my first time shooting in sport mode other than playing around. Logs said I was doing around 45-52mph flying backwards. The whole event took about 40 seconds from first sight to the moving off in the distance. Not really much time to plan ahead other than an initial check of the P4
