Panning from the road  Contributor's Pick!       
NY 17C is withing sight of the Southern Tier Line for most of its distance in Tioga County, making for a good chase road. You have to hustle in places to keep up. One such place is between Barton and Waverly, where the tracks cut a much shorter arc to reach the same point. I was trying the beat the train into Waverly, but wanted to grab the shot across the field-this is the place where theres a concrete underpass in the middle of the cornfield, to allow the cows to get under the former LV, now long gone-but not lose any time. I held the camera up and shot, with this as the result.
