|Fog light, Blacktown|
The rest of the morning was no good for photos as the fog had disappeared before I'd even got to the foothills of the Blue Mountains.
On the short drive from home to this streetlight I saw that in places the streetlights created puddles of light because the road was damp. Normally, when the roads are dry, you get a more diffuse light. But when they are wet, the light reflection stands out more clearly. The conditions would have to be right: wet roads but not raining (I don't like getting wet!), even spacing of the street lights, no traffic, and an appropriate length of road.
Yesterday morning (2:30 am!) the conditions looked promising. It had been raining recently, it wasn't actually raining, and there was no traffic. So I went off looking for streets that might have the right placement of lights and shape. It took me over an hour to find what I was looking for, but this was exactly right:
