    Late night departures from SFO on runways 1L/1R on Saturday, December 5th, 2009. The blurry strip just above the ground are flights United 863 and Qantas 74, both Boeing 747-400s headed for Sydney, as they taxied to 28R.

    A big minus tide had drained most of the water out of the wetlands, so I didn't get as many reflections as I'd hoped for. Also there was bad weather on the East Coast, and perhaps also because it was a Saturday, traffic was a little lighter than usual.

    Lastly, there were (construction?) trucks running around on the closest taxiways, never stopping in one place for long. Two of the trucks were carrying crazy bright lights on flatbeds -- took a long time to get rid the glare and lens flare from them.

    Stack of 79 images, EF-S 17-55 @ 55, f/7.1, 30s. Bayfront Park.

    Obviously better large. :) Also compare with the same shot from a different angle.

      Great pictures! I'm inspired!
      I have to ask, why is this a stack of 79 images? Couldn't it just be one long exposure photo?

      yo, you should blow these up by like 4ft or 5ft and show them at a gallery. these are amazing. especially this one and the others with tons of trails.
