This picture was taken originally in B&W film, exposure was about 4.5 hrs. I took this picture twice, at the first time a car was coming towards my gear with its lights on, so I started a new exposure, afterwords when I developed the film I realized that it was the right thing to do, the first exposure was ruined! I used the parking lights of my pick-up to give me an areal light.
