I'd take a "sky wedgie" ANY day over a ground level wedgie. To me, an elevated view of a train is the best way to view it (we spend our entire lives looking at model trains that way). I've photographed dozens of trains now with my 25 ft tripod, and shooting from ground level just doesn't look appealing to me any more. Death to the ground level wedgie!!
