Day and Night, Saudi's and a Cable.

Post by XWP29 » Tue Dec 11, 2018 11:38 am

Spent the day at a cold and mostly cloudy EGUL yesterday, great company with Trevor :thumb: and we got a little lucky with another another text book cable recovery. Night shots are my favourites of the set, hope you like them.

Night shots do look good

( I think your camera clock is a bit out - Flickr says the night shots were taken at 09:36 it was a dull day but not that dark!)

Thanks

I wasn't being nosey - I was interested in what settings you used to get your night shots. I really like the lighting.

I have tried night shots at the heath but basically mine just look like they were taken in the dark :)

No problem, Flickr for some reason decided to ignore my privacy settings yet again.
There are some really good guides on night photography on the internet.

Brilliant shots Nick. Some stunners here, but number 2 has to be the winner for me. Pure class and skill to get a shot like that

Have you thought of giving up your day job, to be a photographer ?

Very nice Mr H as I said on Flickr - great panning, good sequence for the cable recovery but those night shots are superb - really like them!
