Urban landscapes: mountain traffic
THE LIGHTS OF HARVIE HEIGHTS, ALBERTA
An overpass over the Trans Canada Highway, just before the road goes into Banff National Park, was an ideal spot to photograph traffic after sunset. I made a lot of exposures from this spot, each time trying to capture the ideal balance of traffic going each way. (That’s my minivan parked off in the distance.)

The lines are fantastic and it’s super crisp. Nice!
Thanks for the kind words, Cassi. 🙂
Just an exceptional image! Great work Frank!!
Thanks, Rich. I had this potential composition in my mind for awhile. Just had to get there at the right time of day (after sunset). 🙂
Nicely done! I never did any with the lights and car, one day I’ll have to fine a spot and try it. Did you use a neutral density filter?
Thanks for the kind words, John. In this case, it was dark enough that I didn’t need a neutral density (darkening) filter to get the slow exposure speed I wanted.
Thanks Frank, I’ll have to do one of these one night.
