Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

it was early in the morning as i was driving to work. the fog was out and visibility was 50 yards at the most. there was a walkway over the boulevard so i thought i should try some long exposure in the fog just to see how it would look. i set my canon on 15 sec and timed it just right to only capture red. i end up capturing the art of red.

    Suzette, I had it set at 15 sec and I had to time it just right to only capture red.

    Beside the fog and the all red streetlights, I also love how the white lines on the road aren't being crossed at all by the streetlights. Great job!
