Well I never thought I'd say this about a picture of a motorway (!), but I like that, very

John.

Thanks for your comments. They almost made being frozen stiff and deafened with traffic noise worth while. I also got a lot of drivers thinking I was probably operating a speed trap judging by the tooting of horns and the various finger gesturesI was shown!

Great shot, I really like the sky in this shot with the effect of the long exposure on the cars :-)

I just kept waiting as the sun got lower and lower and the exposures got longer. This shot was the best out of about 20.

I tried to capturemoments like this several times but without success! Therefore I appreciate all photographers who achieve such an effect!

Thanks for your comments JP,

It was really a case of waiting long enough for the sun to get low enough to get a decent length of exposure time to show up the light trails. Photographing towards the sun of course shortened the exposures too much at first and the light trails were too short.
