Serra da Leba, Lubango, Angola by KODILU

This is Serra da Leba, a landmark in Angola. A road built in the 1970's, a marvel of engineering, it has been one of the country's postcard images for decades, but all shots were taken by day. I needed something different. I decided to try a night shot, but it seemed impossible: pitch black, foggy, an altitude of 1,800 meters (5,000 feet). I wanted no more than 30-60 seconds of exposure, max, to avoid more digital noise. But a car takes a few minutes to climb or descend this section of the road. The fog was dense and blocking the view! Suddenly the fog cleared, a few cars went down, others went up, they met in the middle in under 60 seconds. Painting done!
