Mare Island - State Highway 37 - Vallejo - California

First in a series of 3 images. We're going backwards for the next two days - in reverse towards a lovely sunset. Tomorrow - the view directly behind me about 10 minutes earlier.

Amazing colors here, Stephen. Not your usual "cars at night" shot. You POV makes for an interesting flow of the streaks....

Interesting processing. Rich colors. Plus I like the curves of the ramp/highway and the colors of moving lights as they blend into single bright lines.

I like it, the rather wild colours and wild view give it great impact!

Very cool shot and so full of energy. The combination of the blue and the copper colours works so well and the blur of the lights is cool. Great lines throughout this frame!

Great choice for your perspective. I like that the cars in the distance are heading up an makes them looks like they are taking off into the sky!

There is one thing that I absolutely love here, and that is the twilight Blue (usually) seen at dawn, but also here in the evening. Stunning image..!

wow very cool color combination. You should try to get the Exif data up.

@Jerry - a moment in time [...]: I'm always happy to provide the EXIF data Jerry. I use the 'save for web and devices' option in Photoshop which strips the information (I'm hoping in the next version they'll stop this) - anyway - here 'tis:
