Yesterday, I was ‘lucky’ enough to spend a couple of hours on the shoulder of the M25 waiting for a recovery truck. Naturally, it was a pretty tedious wait, and naturally, I had my camera with me.
Unfortunately I never had the tripod, though in fairness, with the traffic thundering past at 70mph plus I doubt it would have helped. So, from the safety of the car, with breath held I took my first ever light trail photos. Not technically perfect (there’s a lot of motion wobble but nevertheless still not a total disaster.
Stuck on the M25 (again) the other morning, with the camera at the ready to capture a field full of corn I always get stuck in traffic next to. The spring sunshine looks great on the corn and wind turbine in the middle of it, and It’s a shot I’ve been trying to get for weeks. A few miles before the cornfield, is this bridge and I was struck by how much more interesting things look with some decent light.
Thousands of people drive past this every day, and most of them probably take no notice of it whatsoever
What about the cornfield? – The traffic stopped at the perfect spot to capture exactly the image in my mind’s eye. The only problem was that some bastard had been out in the combine harvester over the weekend, and all I had was a field full of stubble…. Ah well, there’s always next year….
