Sunset over Hwy 26

I unexpectedly found myself trying my hand at another form of night photography: light trails.

Coming down from Mt Hood on Hwy 26, the sky lit up with an amazing sunset. I had a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach. "Ugh! I am gonna miss taking a photo of this amazing sky?" But as I approached the Boring overpass, I was inspired. I quickly pulled up onto the bridge, got my camera out and took the last moments of color, with the traffic flowing underneath me.
