There's that flickering of what appears to be changing white balance on each frame of this switch back smith. Thrasher photographer Joe Hammeke broke it down for me. This and my other flickering sequences at night in the Park were shot at 1/500th of a second shutter speed. That's fast enough where the entire spectrum of the ceiling lights is not captured in the same way on each frame. He suggested slowing the shutter speed which would allow each frame to capture the full spectrum of the flickering lights. It worked. Check the following sequences and you can see the flicker is gone at 1/200th of a second.
