That's an odd looking rainbow


Comment by Phil Whitehead on 9th January 2013 at 00:05
Nice light trails going on there.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 9th January 2013 at 00:20
Wow.......good one Andrew,nicely done for the wow factor.....cheers!!!


Comment by Roy on 9th January 2013 at 00:59
I cant comment on the quality of the photo etc, perhaps it will be explained later what exactly is happening here. All i can say is that when i go in the Anvil it doesn,t look like that,but,when i come out,well,thats a different matter. Good shot Andrew but i,m not sure what it,s all about.


Comment by Janice on 9th January 2013 at 01:00
Great shot Andrew. Not something that I have attempted yet. Nicely done.


Comment by peterp on 9th January 2013 at 07:21
Not good use of elapsed time photography the car lights distact you away from the shot of the pub,for people who dont know what the anvil pub looks like


Comment by Harry C. on 9th January 2013 at 08:30
peterp, I would say that looks more like a bus than a car!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 9th January 2013 at 08:37
Read all about time-lapse using Google.
One website :-

Andrew, would you please explain how you took this photo? - wonder how long it took.


Comment by Mick on 9th January 2013 at 08:43
What a shame Andrew it looks like your shutter button got stuck and a bus drove past at the same time and left those streaks of lights on it.


Comment by Helen on 9th January 2013 at 09:15
I don't know much about the techniques of photography but I think its a good image...I like it, gives a sense of movement.
Harry I too would think it was a bus rather than a car.


Comment by Janice on 9th January 2013 at 10:16
Peterp, imho this is excellent use of timed photography and I would guess that the light trails - rather than the pub - were Andrew's focus of attention, and, it still provides an interesting view of Wigan.


Comment by David on 9th January 2013 at 10:17
Wasn't this called The All Saints pub in the 60s?


Comment by Garry on 9th January 2013 at 10:49
Don't understand the meaning of this photo???


Comment by dirty harry on 9th January 2013 at 11:10
i dont think it's a bus or a car . someone has been setting left over fireworks from newyears eve . come on people it is'nt rocket science.


Comment by mac on 9th January 2013 at 12:29
Well done it's not easy to take a shot like that I'd say it was a bus.


Comment by Les on 9th January 2013 at 14:22
Was the bus doing 100mph?? for me it spoils a good night time pic. Sorry Andrew, but you can over-do things.


Comment by Roy on 9th January 2013 at 15:29
Yes it was David.The All Saints Tavern if my memory serves me right.


Comment by Garry on 9th January 2013 at 16:39
what's the point.


Comment by Kenee on 9th January 2013 at 18:06
Of course it wasn't a bus......

it was SUPERMAN !!!


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 9th January 2013 at 19:33
Glad it has split opinions - there's nowt worse than boring photography!


Comment by Neil Rigby on 9th January 2013 at 19:43
Garry, this is clearly a 'work-of-art' and like any such work, one should take from it 'what you will', which may be nothing or maybe a lot, or something in between.


Comment by David Fairclough on 9th January 2013 at 19:46
Nice bit of photography Andrew but I'd like to see a good shot of the Anvil too


Comment by Ken R on 9th January 2013 at 20:35
Was it a #10 bus???


Comment by Steve Mercer on 9th January 2013 at 21:32
It's been said before but I'll say it again anyway " He won't sell many ice creams going at that speed"


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 9th January 2013 at 21:41
Poor Andrew..he took the photo he wanted to take and I for one quite like it ....its different.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 9th January 2013 at 21:48
Off tonights subject I know .Watched tonights news and i`m sure i speak for all of us here to all the "ex pats" in Australia.Hope your weather settles soon and the awful fires come under control.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 9th January 2013 at 21:48
It won`t just be one bus, but several as it`s time-lapse.
This pub was DEFINITELY called `The
All Saint`s Tavern`.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 9th January 2013 at 22:28
Andrew: I would appreciate a reply to my 08:37 comment.


Comment by Maureen Andrews on 9th January 2013 at 22:57
Well Andrew,you certainly got plenty of reactions...and like Jean,I like it.


Comment by Ellen on 10th January 2013 at 00:55
..A little late, not unusual for me since retirement!....However, I among some others think it an amazing image, and would like to know more about it, and about the technique involved.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 10th January 2013 at 01:02
Thankyou Jean....we are fortunate in S.A. That we don't have any major fires......our news is heartbreak after heartbreak......


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 10th January 2013 at 06:35
Hi Ernest
Thanks for asking - I took the shot by simply putting the camera on a tripod, waiting for the bus to come along and the then firing one frame for about 3 seconds. A small apeture of, f16 i think, and the darkness allowd the long shutter and the hence the light trails. So, it's a single shot, just a long exposure, and because the bus moved along the frame within the time you get the light trails. No fancy electronics or photoshoppery on this one!


Comment by Art on 11th January 2013 at 01:26
Ernie:
Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.
This pic was taken by time delayed shutter speed,(used to be known as "bulb") as Andrew stated..
Nice shot Andrew ;o)
