Day 199 - Speed of Light


I've seen other people do this before but never gave it a try myself. It was difficult to find a place to do it without worrying about the boogie man getting me or something. :) It's not perfect but not bad for a first try, huh. Unfortunately I picked a freeway that was less busy that time of night so I had to wait a little longer to get these shots before running back over the overpass to my car. The things we do for a picture.

I really want a shot like this0 but like you. I'm having a hard time finding a spot. This looks awesome though!! How long was the exposure?

Cool picture. I remember doing a shot like this when I was in High School for my photo class; looking at your picture sure brought back memories. I'm glad you made it home safe and sound and look forward to seeing you SOON!

Great first attempt. I have found at twilight you get better colours with the sky not being so dark. It's also not so spooky being out!

I think it looks great but I know how you feel. I'm always scared to be by myself and my husband works weird hours.

What a cool shot, Misty! I've never tried one of these shots, either, but it's on my 'to do' list. :-)

This is a great time exposure. I have done this with amusement park rides but never with traffic...I want to, but have not found a nice spot like this one yet!
