Yes, I am aware of the street lights. Unfortunately, I had about a half of a second window in which to take the shot in a vehicle moving about 40 to 50 mph. There's no where to pull over the car safely there, and no where to stand around there at that altitude. The only thing that high around there is the highway itself. If I were to stand on the ground, I would mostly get the bottom of the bridge, as many famous shots have gotten. Maybe if I waited 0.05 seconds more... #18204
