I knew this was mount baker! Awesome, fantastic, cool! I went out there at about 2am a few weeks ago but the moon was a bit too bright for anything worth while.
Anyhow, I really appreciate this image.

Behind The Lens

Location
On Mount Baker in Washington State, USA
Time
11pm
Lighting
There are some light source from the distance off season ski resort. But it didn't have too much impact for this light trails shot. So the main light source is coming from the head and tail lights of the car/cars.
Equipment
Canon 7D with a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 on Tripod, no flash
Inspiration
I've been wanting to have photo of light trail for a long time. And this evening I head down to Mt. Baker for some night photography with a friend from Hong Kong. And we found this curvy road from a high up on the way to the top while we were scouting locations for some astrophotography. So we got sometimes and found the right spot and wait for the night to come.
Editing
The foreground was captured with ISO200 144sec @ f/2.8 and it captured the night sky with a short startrails. But it was too short that it doesn't look very good. So I did another shot with a correct exposure for the milkyway. It was ISO2500 30sec @ f/2.8
In my camera bag
Canon EOS 6D, T3i, EF 24-105mm f/4L, EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, EF 200mm f/2.8L, Samyang 8mm f/3.5, Samyang 14mm f/2.8, Circular Polarizer, ND filter (both 77mm). Interval Timers, 2 x Tripods, And sometimes a Motion Dolly for taking time lapse photos
Feedback
For light trails photography, it really depends on the location you pick in term of the how much traffic there is. On one hand you want it to be darker to have a longer time exposed the shot. On the other hand, the later it is, the less cars on the road. And maybe having a backup plan in mind if you are shooting with someone... I am talking about driving your own car onto the road and have someone press the shutter release button for you..... Like I did!!
