Great shot. Very atmospheric, Dan. Well done.


Comment by Janice on 11th June 2013 at 00:06
Great shot Dan. This is something I have still yet to try!


Comment by Janet ( FL) on 11th June 2013 at 00:47
Homesick :-( , walked through Drummers fields more times than I can remember, even before the bridge and M6..The last time with my Dad, pushing him in his wheelchair.. he passed away 2003, so it's been a long time.. I miss those walks...

What are the lights in the distance.. would they be the warehouses that have been built in back of Sainsburys'?

Thanks Dan, for bringing back memories....


Comment by Lizzie down under on 11th June 2013 at 03:29
Wow this is really good Dan.....amazing colour, last bit of sunset.....well done.....cheers!!!


Comment by Garry on 11th June 2013 at 05:47
Downall green, not Bryn Danel. More birds please!


Comment by john on 11th June 2013 at 08:38
excellent shot Dan , haven't done any of these for years

well done keep them comming


Comment by Colin Harlow on 11th June 2013 at 08:48
Good photo Dan and very clever.
Janet (FL) I think they are the continuation of the motorway lights, after the bend...but could be wrong.


Comment by Kath Pressey on 11th June 2013 at 08:56
love it! i want a camera like that


Comment by Bob on 11th June 2013 at 13:04
Looked on google earth, picture looking north. On right of is a large gantry, distance is a footbridge, lights are motorway lights.


Comment by Linda on 11th June 2013 at 14:13
Brilliant photo Dan! I agree with Colin, I also think its the continuation of the lights and possibly the matrix sign just after the footbridge


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 11th June 2013 at 16:21
What a fantastic picture Ron.


Comment by Dan on 11th June 2013 at 16:38
Thanks for the comments. Bob is spot on, this is looking north and the lights in the distance are the motorway lights :-)


Comment by Janet ( FL ) on 11th June 2013 at 18:02
Thanks for the info everyone. as I said it's been at least 12 years since I walked through there, haven't lived over there in 37 years, things change so didn't know what had been built or where... Where is the footbridge? I didn't know there was one...


Comment by David Barker on 11th June 2013 at 18:07
Like it Dan,good effects just imagine the m25 at night would be amass of colours excellent.


Comment by M6 Geek on 11th June 2013 at 18:47
It's interesting to note that the overhead road lights change from the centre of the Motorway to the side for the section between Mile Post 319.5 to 320.5 at Windy Arbour bridge, then back to the centre again!!


Comment by Bryn Bob on 11th June 2013 at 18:54
Those lights are turned off at midnight!
And the North West motorways are now officially the worst maintained in the country as the new contractor Balfour Beatty is financially better off not doing any work!
For the first time in many a year we have potholes....on our motorwys!
True ring the HA


Comment by rebian on 11th June 2013 at 20:03
Excellent :-))


Comment by Linda on 11th June 2013 at 21:53
Janet, the footbridge can be seen in photo just after 2nd central lamppost. You can access it via Brocstedes Rd using public footpath across a field and it takes you to the Sandyforth farm site and various footpaths either towards Ashton Rd or Highfield.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 11th June 2013 at 22:33
Beautiful Picture - the texture of the sky and the starburst lights "make it special" for me.


Comment by anna on 12th June 2013 at 02:32
fantastic.


Comment by Janet ( FL ) on 12th June 2013 at 17:16
Thanks Linda.. Next time I'm over I will have to go have a look..


Comment by Jon on 22nd June 2013 at 19:40
Great picture. Recently bought a DSLR and still not tried out a long exposure light trail.
