Default Large Pick-up Truck at Night

A public transport bus broke down across the road from us last night, these shots are of the huge pick-up truck sent to take it back to the workshops.

Hey Rod.
I had to laugh just a little when I saw your post.
In the states, this is what we call a big pick up...






we call this a bigTow truck...
Sorry about the small size picture but, you get the idea.

Interesting effect with the lighting, I like it. It's different, don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this or tried to photograph a tow truck's hazard light in the dark. If I ever get a chance, I'll try it.

Thank You GW and Harriet.

GW may be I should had said long, it had to be able to put the 30 foot bus on it back.
Harriet those lights were challenging, he had 2 very bright revolving flashing lights, plus several blinking lights on the cabin as well as all the other ones down the sides.

The cab lights are like fireworks...and I like how the little lights help fill the frame.

Really interesting photos. I would never have thought of taking them as I would have just assumed that there'd be nothing but the flashing light. I guess that's the joy of digital. If a scene looks interesting you can take one or more photos. If they work (as in this case) great, if not there's always the delete key.

A fascinating view of what could have been a very "ordinary" subject. Shows the creative talents of the photographer!!
