Sunset Highway

Sunset Landscape Photo HighwayThere are plenty of sunset photos and there are many long exposure night shots of moving traffic. But how often are the two combined at sunset? This was shot on a rural dead end road right next to Highway 26 near Helvetia, Oregon. The goal was depth-of-field if I could get it and the unpredictability of the lights you see. I metered for the sky and ground, set the exposure at somewhere in between.


  1. You’re right – sunsets and long exposure traffic lights not often seen together – good technical shot as well as very nice visual.
