@Olivier V.: I've tried two days running to leave you a comment - your blog bounces me out - I don't know what I'm doing wrong. (love the yellow arm reaching for an orange)
lovely light and special framing of these trees against this wonderfuls sky.

These trees fit the evening light so very well. Strong work. Not sure if I would have gone for the car passing by. Bt it works out nicely.

@Mirko Herzner: I agree with you, Mirko. You know I am drawn to highway images. I took more than a dozen captures - playing with the passing cars along this busy stretch of road. Seeing that the image was stronger without the vehicle lights became obvious when I started the processing. Unfortunately, I only have one image without the tracers. And the sky isn't nearly as interesting in that one. And so it goes...
love it, the trees all bend towards the moon

Just lovely. The transition of light in the right portion of the composition is beautiful.

Like models posing and dancing in your light ? Those trees have real cool attitude and love the speed ray, fzz-fzzzzzz*

@Susan: Thanks, Susan - a 'hazy moon' tends to draw me.
i love this light, and the deep colors. (sorry to be absent so long. i've been battling a computer virus. think i've finally got it beat.)

@grant: Yo, Grant! It is good to have you back and I'm glad to hear your heading towards complete recovery.
awesome lighting and colors, and those trees do look like fingers reaching for the stars.....I agree with you and Mirko on the tail-lights and the line on the road - the composition would have been a bit stronger without it...

A strange atmosphere... good effect with the wide angle... I like the silhouettes of dead and alive trees... this moon... ant the streaks... like an UFO...

@Francesc B.: Thank you so much for the kind words, Francesc.
Love this one too Stephen, the shape of the almost bare trees is Fantastic.
