Ghosts of flags, with everything else crisp and still. This is rather magical.

Intriguing image, John, before I read your description. It looked like a night shot with late evening sun! Lovely rich colours again and clarity.

I agree that the headlights have enhanced this already excellent image.
Now that I know the ghostly things are flags, I feel a bit sillySad.
