20070825 Grand Wheel

Large. Six-second exposure. I've been waiting for the California State Fair to take a shot like this for a long time. It proved to be more difficult than I thought. It's hard to find a place to attach my Gorillapod and get a good view of a ride without floodlights directly shining at me. Even with the smallest aperture and lowest ISO settings, I had to use a neutral density filter to get an exposure this long. I was going to shoot some more, but a trash collector set up a huge moving trash bin right in front of me and then headed off to various trash cans.
