The photos included here are nothing new in term of subject matter, and the composition varies slightly from previous captures.

Except for cropping and perspective correction, all of these images are…

Blue Spring Road

My initial plan was to photograph the New Jersey side of the Lincoln Tunnel, using a long exposure to create exciting light trails of the vehicles entering and exiting the tunnel.
