Over the River and Through the Woods...

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 26 November 2009 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Time-lapsed photography of the red tail lights of cars and trains traveling northbound out of Chicago and into the suburbs. An ideal capture of everyone heading out of town for the long holiday weekend. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Seen here is the Addison Street station. Photo taken September 25, 2009.

SONY DSLR-A300 30 seconds F/18.0 ISO 100 70 mm

Even though I realize the highway is full, with this shot is looks desolate. Very neat capture.

I love these kind of photos with long exposures on busy streets. You succeeded well here! The lights from the train are cool and stick out from the photo.

I love such photos - well done. Although, leaving a little early for Thanksgiving, aren't they? ;-D
Nice job eliminating the oncoming headlights - always a bugger.

@John: Actually I was hoping to capture the headlights as well. But in order to capture the headlights along with the tail lights, that would have placed me dead center on the entrance ramp on to I-94. :-)
