Trucks at night, long exposure

Last night my friends at WNC Paving were working on a road in Haywood County,  North Carolina which gave me a good opportunity to do some night photography. This picture was a fifteen second exposure, 17mm, ISO-500, f/11. I fired a flash when the dump truck that I wanted to freeze was in front of the camera.
