glowing wheel

Newer Older

My favorite fair shot (tho I didn't take many). While the wheel spun, it also raised up to nearly vertical. I was annoyed that they turned off all the lights but the center strobe, but it allowed for a really long exposure (20 secs) and captured the fading light in a cloudy sky and these lovely subtle swirly smooth colors.

I dig it.

Taken at a tiny Ohio fair when I was traveling back east for the weekend.

    Top shot I'm just getting into low light photography but nothing like this what a cracking shot to be honest I would feel a little silly setting up my tripod in such a busy environment but you have proven to me how worth while a moment of looking like a bit of an anorak actualy is thanks for that and thanks for sharing absolutely brilliant
