Nightscapes along Highway 8

A couple of long exposures from west of Calgary the other night. The vehicle lights traced light trails across the scene to make for more interesting landscapes.

When the first serious blast of winter cold rolled onto the Prairies last weekend, it caught me west of Calgary near Springbank.  The heavy clouds that introduced the snowstorm were already blocking most of the light as the sun started to rise.  I stood on the south side of Highway 8 watching the irregular morning traffic on its way to and from Calgary.  I liked how the headlights lit up the asphalt.
