SO, this part of the country – i’ve visited it a lot
This flyover on the M6 is easy to get too, and you get some fairly decent shots. Such as this:
Lights, at night, running wild. Easy shot to do. Lock it off on the tripod, and leave it for a while to run. You can vary the shots with ambient light or pure night. This has pretty much pure night.
This was a lucky shot – A motorway restart. The cars came round the corner, slowly, and i caught them at 215mm.
However, you can also make shots like this, with some good work. I used some filters for this. The ones i used were:
Cokin P197 Sunset Filter
Cokin P121L ND2 Grad
Cokin P121 ND8 Grad
It’s not called it, but known as, the “top gear” effect, primarily because they use the graduated coloured filters for cars, along with high contrast, to make extremely well shot programmes.
I guess the moral of the story, even though there isn’t much of a story, is too keep visiting the same places if you find a good location. Same works with journalism – keep talking to people if you have a good contact or source.
You never know what you might find
