"During the summer months in Lake Tahoe, Calif., you can drive your automobile through the old abandoned train tunnels," photographer Ben Birk says. "This past fall some poor soul drove out in their newish SUV and got stuck in an early-season snowstorm. By springtime the windows had been broken out and paint spilled all over it. I climbed into this rig and framed my shot thru the broken-out back window. Niko [Cioffi] handled the backside 360 with style and we were all done."
