Hanging out trackside

I used the opportunity on the way to the airport to hang out a bit at Sand Creek where the BNSF and UP mainlines cross at grade. I was hoping for a nice shot of a train crossing the diamonds, but the crossing is located right under a freeway bridge and aside from being not photogenic, it's also very hard to see without getting on railroad property or climbing the freeway embankment.

Instead, I went for this shot looking south towards the huge (and quite smelly) refinery. The photo was taken while recording an HD video. Given that it's basically an HD still, it's not too shabby, but it would have looked really nice at full resolution.
