I've been chasing this image for quite a while now and finally nailed it. I captured this with a 800mm lens from a pullout alongside Grizzly Peak Blvd in the Berkeley Hills. Timing the dusk light to the fog (and blinking light on the tower) was key. The other issue was dealing with the vibration caused by all the traffic rumbling by. At such a slow shutter, any car passing by would vibrate the tripod legs just enough to make the image soft. I hung my camera backpack around my tripod to dampen the vibration.
