It turns out that no, it’s not:
This concept stock photo uses an aerial view of a freeway interchange to illustrate concepts including connection, transportation, complexity, networking and challenge. The base photograph was taken from a helicopter over Oakland, California. The image was composited with Photoshop. I spent over two days painstakingly selecting sections of roadway, then copying pasting sizing and rotating the pieces to fit together an ever more complex puzzle. I also had to copy, paste and position each vehicle, car and truck, and then create appropriate shadows. I believe this complicated maze of on ramps, off ramps and merging roads is a great metaphor for many of today’s important issues ranging from the Internet and world wide web, to social media, to communications and connections.
It’s hard to tell exactly, since the angle and dates are different (and the compositing adds so much on top), but I think the underlying junction is where I-580 and SR 24 meet.
