Hit The Road

And that's just what I did. Well...actually...I stood on a bridge over the M5 motorway, but you get the idea! I thought I'd try out my new tripod, and I'm really pleased with the results. I know its not a perfect photo, it would be better with more car lights, but it's not bad for a first attempt. Some of you may remember my photo of the Town Hall, when I had to rest my camera on a skip, well this is much more civilised!

Who feels like making their voice heard? Remember my incident with a security guard in a shopping centre? Head over to South Shields DP to show Curly some support. Things are getting out of hand!

Are you kidding? This photo is great! I especially like that the lights are three different colors: red, blue and white!

I love taking shots like this. I dont think I have anything that turned out this good though.

Lori said...

Wow, that's such a cool shot! That's one of my favorites that you have taken. You are putting your new tripod to great use!!

Marley, this is excellent. Just remember, it's not the tripod, but the skill of the photographer!
I know it's the UK, but this photo still makes me sing a chorus of "LA Woman"

Wow! Stunning. I think one of the first shot I saw of yours was something like this? You are going to have fun with this baby.

Jackie said...

Well I'd be pleased with this - excellent for a first attempt!

Re your comment on my blog, no I wasn't spying (if I was I'd sooner spy on Dido's Scottish talent - check out Edinburgh DP today! lol), it's just the hedge is the barrier against the road, so it just provides a bit of a challenge for nosy parkers like me!

Dusty Lens said...

Outstanding! love the streaks of light. The tripod is hours of photography fun.

I like this, Marley. You're going to have good adventures with that tripod.

Curly got some justice, I think.
