Another wreck, maybe I'll get another photo credit

There's nothing quite like gettng caught in stopped traffic coming
home, not being able to see around the bend, but being able to see the
flashing lights of a bunch of emergency vehicles that seem to be in
front of your house.

I parked in the pullout 100 meters up the road from my house, walked
home, grabbed the K20D, 18-250 and promaster flash (the af540 is
waiting on parts at criscam).  I found that what worked was to open
the lens up all the way, take a test shot and crank the ISO up to
whatever it took.

The kid, who had just gotten his license, was driving. Something
jumped in front of him, he swerved, lost it and ended up on his
side. It's kamikazi deer season, so that's my guess.

A much smaller set than last time, now that I have a better idea of
what the papers want.

more photos, for those who can't get enough at:

The first step is learning to take great photos, 
the second step is learning to throw away ones that are merely good.
