Startlingly Beautiful Photographs of Traffic Lights on Foggy Nights

One of the joys of photography is that, with the correct light and angle and exposure, you can find beauty in the strangest places. So it goes with these photos by German artist Lucas Zimmermann, which are all images of… traffic lights, of all things. But on foggy nights with long-ish exposures, even these most mundane of objects seem to become something entirely different — the intersections Zimmermann photographs are bathed in eerie pools of light, making for a series of photos that’s both stark and atmospheric.
