Victoria Street lights at night, Old town, Edinburgh, Scotland

Around the bend on Victoria St. in Old Town Edinburgh.


It was snowing/sleeting quite heavily when I took this photo. I forgot to pack my lens hood on this trip, so I had to DIY one out of business cards and duct tape (never leave home without it!). Even with this extremely solid contraption I was still getting water drops all over my lens, so I had to continually go into coffee shops to wipe my lens off, resulting in an extreme caffeine overload :P I stood in this spot for about 30 minutes waiting for the right car to pass by... It's definitely a waiting game to get great light trails.


Canon 5DMK3+16-35mm, 8s at f/16, ISO 200.
