Light Trails on MacCurtain Street

Light Trails on MacCurtain Street

Ghostly light from passing cars hangs in the air on the corner of MacCurtain Street and Bridge Street in Cork City, Ireland.

This is the second of three light trails or light streaks photos I’ll post here in an unintentional series of long exposure photos. The first was my Light Trails in Blarney photo published yesterday.

Light Trails in Blarney

Light Trails in Blarney

The red lights of a passing car streak across this photo taken in front of Christy’s in Blarney over the weekend.

The photo was a long exposure of 8 seconds, at f/4, ISO 100. I was shooting in manual mode and made sure the scene was under exposed by at least a stop. As f/4 was my widest aperture the lens captured as much of the red light as it could.

I took numerous shots of this scene and was bent over my camera (with my wallet under the lens to angle it upwards) so long that a woman came over asking if I had lost anything!

Hold Her Steady

A ship tied up at the quay in Kinsale, Co. Cork last year. The vessel was mostly deserted but we saw revellers boarding it regularly, walking around the deck and then off again!

Light Streaks of City Traffic

Light Streaks of City Traffic

A long exposure shot of traffic as it heads into Cork City from the direction of Blackpool. This was very difficult to take and the original shows quite a bit of shake even though I had the camera balanced on a pedestrian traffic light button thingy. Love the streaks though.
