Tower Bridge Streak

By Jasper87  
Bridges burning gladly
Merging with the shadows,
Flickering between the lines.
Stolen moments floating softly on the air,
Borne on wings of fire and climbing higher
.............. Pink Floyd

Time for me to bid thee adieu again. After today I shall be off on holiday for a couple of weeks.... no mobile sevice, no internet access, no ATMs.............. and no, it's not Scarborough!!

This is Tower Bridge, at night, with a tripod and remote release, Iso 200, f13, 2.5secs, 15mm. Had to try a streaky colour shot at some point Smile

Great shot. Grin
I tried a shot like this when we were in London in the summer but without a tripod and only a GorillaPod wrapped around the railings the result was dire, the road shook as vehicles drove past!!! Sad
