I just take them while driving, point, auto-focus and shoot. It's not very difficult on motorways, you don't have to shift gears. In cities, it's a lot more difficult, and dangerous, i must say. So i don't do that.

I take video's in another way, i put my camera on the dashboard, and point through the wiper blades. You'll see a small section of the wiper-blade, which can be avoided when zooming in, but every bump will be 4 times more visible, and it looks like you're almost in the backseat of the car in front of you, so you see too much car, and not the road/signs/scenery. Then i activate the camera and just drive like i normally do.

I have a roadtrip to Poland, Slovakia & Czechia planned somewhere within this year. But it's a busy year upcoming, late April/early May, i will go to Switzerland & Rome, because of my parents wedding anniversary, and i originally planned my roadtrip in this season. That has been postponed to likely early September, but i am planning to go on holiday to Spain myself in June.

so;

Switzerland & Italy
Spain
Poland, Slovakia & Czechia

Awesome work as usual, Chris. It's a great compilation. I wish I could travel so much through Europe.

I must cheer myself up looking some pics. I will need to take a week off to see all those Dutch roads

Neat photos Chris. The Picsa web interface works really well for scrolling through photos as well.

I have to ask though, as an avid highway photographer myself, does anyones here who takes highway photos do so primarily from outside there car, or am I all alone on that front?

You mean, you hang out of the car, or you just park your car somewhere and take a picture?

Taking photos while driving myself would be nothing for me - absolutely too much. I admire you that you can manage this!

I only take pictures when it's safe. Better no pic than an accident. I usually go out on quiet days, like saturdays or sundays.

Usually I park the car where it is safe and then walk to where i want to take my photo from. When taking freeway guide signs obviously it isn't safe to park so I do those on the fly, but the photos I am most interested in taken are actually straddling a freeway from an overpass.

Have a look at my QEW galleries to see what I mean:

Hi all,

These are some of the largest interchanges in Israel, courtesy of Google Earth. All are in the general vicinity of Tel Aviv.

Not quite as impressive as some of those in previous postings, but not bad, nonetheless:

The Gannot HaShiva complex:

The Ben Shemen Interchange:



The Kessem Interchange:
