Another great shot, Stephen, Ilike very much these beautiful colors of the magic moment. Seen in larger size one can appreciate it a lot better :)

@Paco Díaz: Bless you, Francisco - thanks.

Mirko Herzner from Mühlheim am Main, Germany

This time I really like the lights streaks as the red adds more to the overall image. Again this almost silhouette effect of the trees works great.

Well done. I like the light streams. I've been playing with doing something like this recently, but haven't had nearly this much success!

@willow: Thank you, willow - my experience has been to use really sturdy tripod and the lowest ISO available. Good luck to you.

Michael from Shell village, United Kingdom

Mike from Lichfield, United Kingdom

I can honestly say that I've never in my life noticed Jupiter. I'll be looking out for it in the future. Another super evening shot. I'm liking the light trails.

@Mike: Well Mike - that moon is spinning around us every 28 days while the planets do there thing in the back ground. I try to catch the radio show 'Stardate' - which is widely available. They always point out any interesting upcoming celestial pairings. I thought the weather over on your side precluded seeing what's up top at night.

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

Cool image, Stephen. it must mean something astrologically.

What is the secret? ??? Come on, I will not tell.

I love this photograph. Something about a drive with a setting like this.
