Just a quick blog post to wish my readers “Happy Christmas” and I hope you all have a “Phabulously Photographic New Year!”
Here are some Christmas tree lights in Bristol photographed, as they say on Masterchef, two ways.
This first image is a reflection of the Christmas tree lights in a vertical water feature. The moving water has broken up the reflection into bands of colour. I had to use the telephoto end of my camera’s zoom lens to get just the part of the reflection I wanted.
Here I’ve moved close to the tree then moved the camera during the exposure to produce bands of colour a different way.
Both images were taken on a relatively simple travel zoom compact camera.
Roll on 2017, and the photography challenges it will bring!
