a moment of wonder

we took part in speed of light at edinburgh festival. it was a night walk up to arthur's seat overlooking edinburgh with walking sticks that had a a light at the bottom end to help you walk. groups of runners in suits with lights on them ran across the adjacent hill to the walkers creating a mesmerising effect. it was designed and put together by NVA. if you are in edinburgh book yourself in. clearly a challenge to photograph so i took up a tripod and grabbed a few 10 second or so exposures which look rather beautiful in their own way...

 

[it is amazing how many people with camera set to auto or something take photographs with flash on - see the twinkle on the left hand side for an example. this is irritating for everyone else and makes for a crap photo anyway losing all of the night ambience! if anyone has a photo to prove otherwise i'd love to see it...]
