Anyone know the color temp or what types of lights are used in Denver on surface streets and on the highway? Shooting there in March for process trailer moving car shots and wanted to know what color they will read.

I know Xcel Energy owns and operates all the street and road lights in Denver, I'm not sure how you could go about finding out the specifications of the lights, but do take into consideration that the age of the lamp will affect its color temperature. Also, I know they have installed new lights in the past year or two, so I am sure you would find a mixture of different color temps and lamp types.

Try giving the Traffic Engineering Services a call to maybe find out a little more technical background on the street lights. The number is 720-865-3150.

Best of luck with the shoot! Enjoy the weather for me ;)
