After an afternoon of shooting along Dingli Cliffs, me and brother Edwin settled down around the Buskett Woods for a round of night photography ...

The winding country lanes gave us a good blend of streetlighting and shadow along most of the woods ... I eventually got hold of this composition, the weeping bark and the lighting over it getting the better of me. Quite a lengthy exposure at 25 secs, though reveals lovely detail. I added a burst of fill-in flash during the exposure to fill in the shadow area of the bark. Should be viewed large to appreciate. Thanks for viewing.

Joe

The light really has brought out some wonderful textures in the tree trunk. Love the rich colour in this too.
