Light Up The Sky

ShareMonday2018 – Light Up The Sky

I finally got round to photographing fireworks properly last night! This is from a local display held at Imber Court. I took a while to work out the location I felt best to view the display’s large fireworks at a bit of distance. A nearby recreation grounds proved to be perfect. I think I need a different lens for future shoots, something in between my two Fujinon lenses. I was pretty pleased with some of the results though! My lead image is a double exposure at ISO200 for 5 seconds. There’s movement with some crisp detail and nice black skies. My second image was very experimental so I would love to hear your thoughts. It was exposed for 20 seconds to get multiple bursts and maximum movement but the skies weren’t as black as I would have liked! Next time I may have to remember, remember a filter or two 😉

Ring Around The Moon

Ring Around The Moon

A moon halo or rainbow is caused by the refraction of light, reflected by the moon, upon ice crystals in the upper atmosphere. I rather enjoyed seeing this soft and slightly broken glow in the high cloud, passing across the face of the moon, on Thursday last week and thought it would make a good entry for the Wex Mondays challenge.

Lighting-up Time

Lighting-up Time

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light!

In the UK we refer to the time at which drivers should put on their headlights as Lighting-up Time. It’s also the time at which the street lights come on.

There was a very pretty Lighting-up Time in West Byfleet today with a beautiful skyline above the shops and traffic!

Sunset On Cedars

Sunset On Cedars

I had a lovely visit from my friend Helen today and we both went over to see my mum for a cream tea with home-made scones.

There was a beautiful sunset and from upstairs in my parents home there was a truly spectacular view of the colourful skies as the sun went down beyond Painshill Park.

Thank you Helen and Mum for a lovely day x
