Light Trails on Tower Bridge
Night shot of traffic crossing Tower Bridge, showing dramatic light trails and giving an impression of speed.
This is a 6 second exposure creating the light trails from the traffic on Tower Bridge, London. The image has had over 5 billion views on Google+ and can be seen on Chromecast.
To get the shot with the trails showing high in the image I was lying in the middle of the road, with the camera almost at road level. It was just infront of a traffic island, so was not as damgerous as it might appear.
The camera was a Sony A6000 which was set to f11 to ensure reasonable sharpness through the depth of the image. ISO 100 was used to allow the long exposure and get maximum quality.
