I've been wanting to take photos like this for ages and now, at last, I can! The lights are wee bit wiggly because it was very windy, and the camera was wobbling a tiny bit. For the technically minded, this was a 6 sec exposure, f25. I was using a pocket tripod.
This road is going north, towards the Tyne Tunnel. You can just see the lights from the river on the left hand side there.
