Rural landscapes: the race to the mountains


Morning traffic is always busy on weekends as thousands of Calgarians head west to go skiing in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. I found a perfect spot on an overpass to make long exposures of that traffic. I ultimately went with this 30-second shot because it also has the long exposure lights from an eastbound vehicle. It was a cold and windy dawn but, as you can see, the effort was worth it.
