M5 Motorway Night Light Trails

M5 Motorway Car Light Trails At Night
And now for something completely different!
I always wanted to try a long exposure on the motorway like this. I took a few as I was driving along (with the remote) and this one turned out the best. I can't remember what the blue bits are at the top though?
I now realise I need a better tripod as the cheap one I have kept falling over, so I need one that's a bit more flexible! You can also see from the wavy lights that the motorway isn't as smooth as you might think... I'm going to try it again sometime to see if I can get a better one.
30 second exposure on the 50mm

I'm slightly overwhelmed and in shock at the attention this shot got, but I'd like to thank everyone who has checked it out! =)

    The detail you managed to capture on the inside of your car is brilliant, how did you set up your tripod?

    I tried this shot myself tonight and it didnt turn out so great take a look here
