On the road ~ Missing the other Eagle

This image was taken on my last night in Maine. It was a full moon and I loved this eagle with the “missing” sign in on it. I had driven by it twice a day for a week, and I knew the image I wanted to create would be during the nocturnal hours. In the previous shot a car drove by and the headlight streaks nailed the composition on the lower left. However, during the 3 minutes that I was making this exposure no cars were driving by. So, with one minute left, I jumped into the rental car, did the famous gabe u-turn, and drove through the image. I really like how the headlights appearance mirrors the full moon behind the clouds above.
Also, I really like how normal rural settings can be extraordinary at night.
