Thank you everyone for your comments and votes yesterday. I am fortunate to live five minutes to the motorway, ten minutes to the sea, 15 minutes to the countryside and thirty minutes to the city's of Cardiff and Swansea, this upload was taken tonight on a bridge over the motorway, there is roadworks hence the title, Port Talbot steel works gives a great background, the blue streaks on the right was a police car with the blues and two's going.

Thanks everyone, Paul the Police were probably chasing me off the bridge as the drivers think I have a speed camera, Richard next time pop in for a cuppa and thanks to Jeff and Richard for user awards, much appreciated.

I think it's the blue flashes of the police an dthe traffic cones which make this different from other light trail images.
Also the star burst and Port Talbot make a great background.

A stunning creative capture.
I have travelled on that road at night many times and Port Talbot always reminded me of the future city scene in the film Bladerunner.(All the huge flames)
