some are white light

i'm a night owl. which doesn't jive well with having a job that requires me to be up and functional in the morning. but every so often i can't resist staying up late and indulging in the meditative stillness of long-exposure night photography.
what's interesting to me is how much i'm drawing from this image that i didn't see when i framed and created it.
despite gathering storm clouds, there is a cool stillness in night air laced with the scent of sagebrush.
and even on the darkest of roads, there is still, sometimes, light. like a spear shot from heaven, guiding us.
these are dark times. but we are not hopeless.
