Photographer's Note

During my years away from Trekearth I spent some years as a ship engineer, and that had me travelling to a larger part of the world than usual.
On my so far longest trip away from home I spent close to 9 weeks around southern Japan.
one of the jobs I attended brought me to Shimonoseki on the way western tip of Honshu.

When about to leave for a job even further south in Kyushu I wanted to take a few photos of the two trains (500 and 700 series shinkansen) that were currently stopped at the station. Increadibly enough the first photo I shot was at the exact moment this southbound 700 series Nozomi came rushing through the station at full speed. Apparently 280km/h according to my local colleague.
According to him, it was also regarded as lucky to capture more that 2 trains while at the station. He also mentioned the extremely rare occurrence of a 4 train photo... but then again that was next to impossible.
