This image was made in Tucson, Arizona at a McDonald’s restaurant. My tripod and I were almost hanging into the 6 lanes of traffic during rush hour, at sunset. The dinosaur is being lit by all kinds of light: headlights of cars, the stoplight, the Christmas lights in its mouth, and the sodium vapor street light coming on above it. I kept the shutter open from the green light through the red, and the photo gods were smiling as the exposure was spot on.
