Default some light trails -sadly not my work

As this months challenge is light trails I thought the following images in one of the newspapers here are very good (can't embed the images so had to paste the URLs). I've always wanted to take a picture like the third one of the cars on the motorway but haven't found a suitable place to do it.

I really like #1. Great shot. I was trying to get a shot akin to #3 for this month but unfortunately with only 2 days left it doesn't look like I'm going to have the time.

You are right - these pictures are awesome. I love the first one with the skiers. I've done some shots similar to the 3rd one, only used a street instead of a freeway. I'd have to work too hard to do a freeway one (scouting location where I could set up etc.). Streets are easy for those who live in the big city.

Those are great shots, where there is light, there is a possibility for trails. Not only can you go out and find light in motion, but you can create your own. I just posted my entry for the challenge, along with a few others that are applicable to topic.

Frogfish....As the month is almost over, you may not have time to create the photo you would like, but I urge you to do it anyway and show us the results.

Yes I have every intention of doing it as it is a very iconic shot of The Bund, the very famous waterfront, built by the British when Shanghai was called the Paris of the East. Absolutely gorgeous buildings fronted by 8 lanes before the river ! Your Challenge reminded me that this is one shot still on my list that I haven't got around to yet.
