Autumn Morning City Sunrise

With a little bit of “I don’t care”-attitude and a slight tilting of your head, this photo is perfectly leveled.

Tilted? I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal 2

I just posted a photo for the Weekly Photo Challenge theme ‘renewal’ earlier tonight, but in the spirit of the challenge I went and ‘renewed myself’ by taking some fresh shots. I’ve taken multiple light trail shots of the train earlier, but this time I tried out a new, elevated angle.

What images does Renewal conjure for you? Get creative. Think beyond the usual images (a sunrise, a birth). – Cheri Lucas, WordPress

Here’s two of them, fresh out of the camera:

Moon, train and light trails

Captured these trains passing by the other night.

Light trails from two trains passing by.

Light trails from 3 trains passing by.

I like shooting long-exposure photos and capture light trails like this. The autumn has started and this is the perfect season for this kind of photography, because I don’t have to stay up all night (or get up in the middle of the night) in order to catch the perfect light (or shall I say darkness?) conditions.
