Last night on the way home from a commercial photography shoot, I noticed what I thought could be a good opportunity for a night landscape shot. I stopped the car and found a good vantage point from which to take the photo.
I was just about to leave and go home when I heard a truck coming.. ah a light trail in the shot would be cool.. sure enough I got a cool red light trail. The light gullies on the hills are illuminated by very large “work lights” used while work was being carried out on the main trunk railway high on the hillside.
I am well pleased with the final result. I love the way the lights from Paekakariki, Raumati and Paraparumu is reflected in the sky to give the photosa great moody aspect and increased the overall appeal of the photos.
