I was on a bridge too far from the place of accident and so this is the second time ever I had to use digital zoom in my 5060. So this picture probably does not have much of artistic, aesthetic or "technical" value. Instead it may have some documentary and certainly pedagogic value! First of all - remember to drive carefully and, secondly, keep the camera always with you. PS. The driver of this burning Opel was lucky. Another driver stopped and dragged him off the his wrecked car.

Great value

Hi Pekka,

this is a priceless documentary picture!
They say that timing is everything and you have proven that here. Don't bother about the digital zoom, the picture is unique. I am impressed by the composition you managed to make in such a situation.

Congratulations and Gott Nytt ?r!
