Hello, and welcome to CS #533 which runs from today 1/26 through midnight February 1st.
The theme I have chosen for this weeks shoot is Planes, Trains, Automobiles....and possibly boats or farm tractors (attention Bob). So basically anything that moves to perform work or conveys people is ok.

The usual forum rules apply such as submitting only pictures taken during the time frame of this shoot, size and
strictly family oriented content.

After powerful rainstorms this is the first few days that Sacramento has been free from precipitation so hope to get out and take some new pics myself.

Please have fun and enjoy the shoot.

The three examples were previously taken images but should serve to start out the shoot:

I'll be traveling to a small neighboring city called Ione today, but hope to get back tomorrow to add a
new pic or two.​

Sacramento has it's own Bridge to Nowhere:

It qualifies for this shoot, "because I said so", and it conveys both trains and autos.

^In this case it is shown nearly closed for a better idea of what it does.^​

Oh, thought I would add this picture to show why the bridge was opening and closing:

Notice how flooded the banks of the Sacramento River are from last weeks rainstorms.

Sorry about the poor quality, it is a heavy crop and is in the shade.​

Cool shot, looks like they rotate it a little more often than this one:

Nice shots, Al. I like the framing on the shot of the two small boats. Your bridges have much more paint on them than the one I posted.

Thanks for contributing.

My Polaris Ace from this last weekend. I picked this up last year after deciding I should no longer ride an ATV (long, painful and expensive story :() but wanted to continue riding and exploring. With a real seat, steering wheel and gas/brake pedals I actually like the layout better than the ATV, and the roll cage & seat belt provide some extra protection.

Neat, hadn't thought about one of those. Where do you ride?
