Through the Freeway - Under the Moon

Crockett, California

For a couple of years - I'd been trying to find a way to show how this massive freeway interchange scales to the small town of Crockett, California ( population 3,194 - census 2000 ). This works. The image was taken from above a large retaining wall that was under construction the last time I was shooting here.

Jupiter is visible just barely above the top of the freeway to the lower left of the moon. This was taken on Monday night. I noticed last night (Tuesday) that Jupiter has overtaken our fair moon and that now the lunacy appears to be chasing the 'giant' planet across our sky.

More tomorrow...

What fantastic light! A most impressive capture. The tail light trail is a nice final touch to the composition.
