Light trails at dawn along the TransCanada

A couple of weeks ago I went to Springbank, just west of Calgary, and made a few long exposure photographs from the overpass that leads to Calaway Park to the south and the Springbank Airport to the north.  The TransCanada Highway runs west from Calgary, under this bridge and a few more, before heading into the Rocky Mountains.  As night faded, the line of the mountains in their snowy blankets stood out.

 

To the east the sun painted the scattered clouds before it rose above the eastern horizon.  The color from the headlights, tail lights and reflections in the shiny pavement patches balanced the sky in a way I liked.

Shortly before the sun rose, the landscape and clouds to the west were illuminated with soft, even light which helped the light trails to really glow.

    • Agreed – I get mesmerized watching lights trace out lines as they move through a scene.
