Urban landscapes: the rush of traffic

MORNING RUSH HOUR ON SIXTH AVENUE, CALGARY, ALBERTA

There’s a trick to getting the best possible long exposure traffic photos in big cities; you want to be there when there are lots of vehicles, but you also want to have as much light as possible from the surrounding skyscrapers, so they’re not just black silhouettes against the sky. In this western Canadian city, that means making photos on fall, winter or early spring weekdays. That’s when I made this picture.
