I was on my way to the Isle of Skye and the thought came to mind as I was travelling along this road through Glen Shiel that the conditions were all coming together for a nice image of a vehicle's lights defining the route through the mountains.  

I found a turn off that led up above the road just before this bend and I knew I had the composition so I waited...and waited!

There's not that much traffic along the road at this time of night.  Every time I heard a vehicle approach I'd open the shutter and wait.  My exposure time was between 30 seconds and a minute, so it was all bit of a guessing game.

This image was actually my final attempt from about a 15 minute period where I'd either mistime the shot and the trails would be incomplete, or the exposure would be wrong.  I was finally forced to stop by a rain shower which even with the use of an umbrella meant I couldn't keep the lens clear.

Even if I'd been able to shoot for longer I don't think I could have improved on this final version.
