Last Call: Night Lights Edition

I don’t know where this was taken, or the details about the exposure, lens, or any of that fancy camera jargon. All I know is that it’s a cool enough picture that I’d like to have it hanging on the wall of my garage to admire. Then I’d like to go drive somewhere in the cool darkness of the night.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day.  It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

      Mr T. is available as a voice on the Waze navigation app right now. I highly recommend both. “Turn left sucka!” “Keep right fool!”

    I so love driving late at night. Waaay less traffic, and cops.

      Fun, but roadside sight seeing is a bitch.

      There is nothing quite like the illicit late night mountain road blast on a clear night, all the lycra enthusiasts and sunday drivers are in bed, the cool night air is denser giving you that little extra bit of power, actually better warnings of oncoming traffic on blind corners.

    had to do a 20km trip last night to a community fire brigade meeting so instead of travelling the commuter ridden single lane road over the mountain to where I had to go, I took the back dirt roads, excellent fun. no slower and possibly faster in overall time but great winding hard dirt up and down hills with various bits of wildlife playing kamikaze runs across the road, no traffic and no mrs spotty telling me to slow down
    .
    coming back I took the big sweeping tarmac road round the lake and then the reeeealy tight dirt that actually goes below the level of the lake then straight back up the side of the mountain straight to my front door
    .
    verdict – meeting a bit boring – travelling to meeting excellent – sometimes I love living in the hills

      Was it actually night, or was the cloud of pollutants just blocking out the sun?

    Im used to dark roads, but in the TX hill country they have reflective dots in the middle of the road. I was amazed as I could see the next corner half a mile away and everything else that made driving at night much easier.
