My entertainment for last Saturday was an evening out with the camera. I was after light trails as I’ve seen them in the magazines & never managed to pull it off. I think I certainly need to find some better backgrounds however I was finally pleased that I captured the cars criss crossing the motorway. The added bonus of capturing the indicators adding colour to the line was an added bonus.
I settled on f11 for the aperture & bulb for the shutter speed & kept putting the lens cap on when the road was empty. Its great sometimes to get out & have a play & the time spent staring at the cars was quite mesmerising. I kept wondering what their final destination was. Seeing the trails disappear into the horizon or around the corner just added to the mystery.
Having achieved my goal I decided to try & be clever & see what I could capture at the busy junction by the house. I was like a kid with a new toy & eventually drew attention to myself & was showing people what I was up to.
