Rural landscapes: the race to the mountains
TRANS CANADA HIGHWAY TRAFFIC, BOW VALLEY PROVINCIAL PARK, ALBERTA
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.
