They only come out at night Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
Contest goal:

With man's desire to get places quicker with the least amount of hassle, freeways seem to be everywhere nowadays. They stretch, bend and twist - and sometimes totally confuse.

Stay safe, but try to get the most artistic shot of a freeway you can. To clarify, to be considered a freeway, there must NOT be any intersections or traffic lights indicating that you have to stop, hence the name, "FREE" way.

Required level: 10- or lower.
Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

magicsteve: POETIC JUSTICE!!!!! lol seriously though, that sucks locksmagic. Did you at least get some nice shots? ( 5 years and 2748 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Awwwwwwwwww! I sooooooo wanted to enter this contest too!!! Alright, I insist we make this contest for the 10+ levels next week. Seriously, it's not easy to get some good artistic shots and I would actually like to make a comparrison to 10+ and 10- entries. Seriously! That's not a bad idea. ( 5 years and 2747 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Hey Adam, I was going to do the same thing! I found a bridge that runs over the freeway. No fence! 3 foot concrete wall. Awesome view of the rocky mountain range too. It doesn't get a lot of traffic. We have so many new freeways built recently. (2002 winter olymics makeover) Yup, I could have entered something cool. ( 5 years and 2747 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I should have indicated that freeways are also in major metropolitan areas and also consist of many lanes of traffic. IMO, a highway is NOT a freeway ( 5 years and 2744 days ago )
Kare: So now we can post any pic of a road ? ( 5 years and 2742 days ago )
FallingHorse: Good thing I can't enter this anyway .... 3000km to the nearest freeway (seeing that highway doesn't count lol) ( 5 years and 2741 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Seriously, most of these are off theme. I'm sorry if you people don't live near freeways and can't get good shot of them but there's only about 7 entries of freeways. I ( 5 years and 2741 days ago )
ziggyx2003: its simple if you think it is off theme either red flag it or vote very low ( 5 years and 2740 days ago )
duncandips: just a quick comment: you can't add more rules after the contest has started. ( 5 years and 2738 days ago )
ziggyx2003: I don't think Jawshoewhah is trying to change the rules, i understand debating highway v freeway, but I think we all know the difference between a freeway and a country lane ( 5 years and 2738 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I already did. If I knew that there were going to be so many highway entries, I would have specified, you freeway has to have at least two lanes of traffin and not be on the same road. God donesn ( 5 years and 2738 days ago )
jawshoewhah: as I was saying, doesn't anyone live in LA? My god they have the most outragous and confusing freeways that bend and twist and turn and that was what I wanted people to shoot. ( 5 years and 2738 days ago )
jawshoewhah: and duncandips, the mods do have the power to alternate the rules and guidelines to any contest. I'm sure most of these entries will not get pulls but don't expect any high votes from me. ( 5 years and 2738 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Ziggy, thank you for seeing where I was coming from. ( 5 years and 2738 days ago )
