awesome long exposure

Beautiful! love the color, love the scenery, love everything. Maybe a little story about the picture would give more impression. :D

Now, that is a nice twist. Super interesting photo!!

Great shot, very well executed, the tail lights the background colors and the curve. pretty great shot indeed.

This has lovely lighting but where is it? Also if you had walked a few meters forward the road would not have been hidden by the foreground. Having said that; the lighting is lovely.

Nice use of timed-exposure and available light. Love the ‘car-tracks’

Great picture, but where is it?

Lovely indeed! Would love to know the location :)

It looks like a race track, the lighting is great.

Very stunning shot!

Looks like part of the Sonoma Coastline in Northern California, between Jenner and Fort Ross St Pk (Hwy 1). I don’t know the name of the grade, but it’s a very steep and winding one climbing from the mouth of the Russian River. And no, a few meters forward would not show one more of the road. I don’t think there’s anyplace along the road that gives you a view of whole thing (except just on the edge of it, looking down).

Ok, that said–lovely shot of our great coastline! If I’m correct on location, I can see my favorite beach. ;-)

I think Charlene is exactly right on location. I was sure the inlet at the top left was River’s End at Jenner where the Russian River meets the Pacific. One of my favorite stretches of Northern California coastline too. Terrific shot, Jared!

Really good photograph in general – But, a little Where, What, and Why – like some “quote” from your ‘Photographers Notebook’ would be great too.

You do make use of a notebook when shooting do you not?

It’s a unique location and I may have said too much. Some of us don’t like to give away our locations. But I’m still sure it’s the North Coast of California. ;-)

Niiiiiiiice :-)
Too bad the car did not ride the entire road, still, that shot rocks :-)

It is north of Jenner on the 1. ~24 sec exposure about 15 minutes after sunset. No more road to show, and this comp was to place curved light trails just right. Thanks for the looks and comments. Cheers!

Great scenery near the roads.

Wonderful shot. Looks like a place made from a dream.
