I took this shot of my truck at a rest area off I-380 in Iowa right before the bottom fell out of this menacing sky. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good! : )

In the Trucking across America photo essay.

    Nice contrast between light on your truck and the dark sky.

    Really like the light you caught. Usually I'm heading into it so I never get to see that angle. Nice.

    Fantasically clear shot. I love it. And that sky is perfect. Being from the midwest, I know that sight - the sun trying to shine as much as it can before the clouds takes over. I can almost smell the air and feel the chill.

    Tasty S. Truckies (as we call you blokes) have a quite a big, mostly good, reputation in Oz. The grief involved in running a rig like that is well known. And putting aside some high profile accidents, I reckon most regular highway drivers in Oz, as I am, know that truckies are some of the safest drivers on the road.
    Must make a point of posting some shots of what your brothers are doing with their rigs here. Digging the spectacular light configurations we're seeing on more rigs nowadays.
