Good bye Michael...
Wow, thanks to all the voters.
I used only one shot for this image.
I had to wake up at dawn to take this shot and, my luck, there was a little fog on the road.

Raw conversion +1/0/-1 EV, HDR and many adjustments with levels, saturation, contrast etc.

Alternative shot ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/68514/120/806920.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/68514/120/806920.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
