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

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

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.

    Since you seem to be in the mood for blogging again, it would be nice to find out how your photographic life is developing.

    You have seemingly moved away from portraits and are exploring landscapes now. Is that just trying new things to see where it’ll take you or are you following a passion.

    I guess what I’m saying is it would be nice to have some information to fill the lines between the photos, as in “What’s going on with you?” :)

    Keep on shooting. And writing!
