cool road in Oregon

Yesterday I photographed one of my favorite spots, a really cool road near my parent's house in Oregon. The road is fun to photograph because it has these big sweeping turns everywhere and it's in a very beautiful location right beside the Columbia river, which is huge river that separates Oregon and Washington.
I have shot many pictures of this road before, but I decided to do something different and photograph it at night instead of daytime to get a different look. It was essential for a car to drive through during the exposure so the headlights and taillights streak, making it more interesting. Well the problem in Oregon is that it's very rural and one car passed through during the 1.5 hours I was shooting (I think thats a good problem though). So I put my wonderful wife to work as my assistant and she drove though the photo dozens of times until I got the shot. Good job Bethany!

This is the road during the day (photographed a year ago)-

And these are a few of the night photos from yesterday-

(I like the day time picture better than your night ones of this road.)
