M6 Light Trails
Photo: Dan Highton (Canon 5D Mark II, 10 Second Exposure)
Great shot. Very atmospheric, Dan. Well done.
Great shot Dan. This is something I have still yet to try!
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....
Wow this is really good Dan.....amazing colour, last bit of sunset.....well done.....cheers!!!
Downall green, not Bryn Danel. More birds please!
excellent shot Dan , haven't done any of these for years
well done keep them comming
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.
love it! i want a camera like that
Looked on google earth, picture looking north. On right of is a large gantry, distance is a footbridge, lights are motorway lights.
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
What a fantastic picture Ron.
Thanks for the comments. Bob is spot on, this is looking north and the lights in the distance are the motorway lights :-)
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...
Like it Dan,good effects just imagine the m25 at night would be amass of colours excellent.
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!!
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
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.
Beautiful Picture - the texture of the sky and the starburst lights "make it special" for me.
Thanks Linda.. Next time I'm over I will have to go have a look..
Great picture. Recently bought a DSLR and still not tried out a long exposure light trail.
