A play on light

The Image Posted to day at Posterous is a night time shot with a little extra going on. There is a car in the picture, but you just see the taillights as they slice through the top third of the Image. The night time setting on the camera allows for the shutter to stay open much longer than normal. You time the shot to include the car as it passes you. The length of time the car is in the shot is not enough for the car to be picked up, but the red stop lights are plenty bright enough to register, and as the car moves down the road, it leaves those red streaks you see.
