bright lights of an oncoming car reflected in the snow


Posted on | Shot on at 17:00:00

Driving down a rural backroad during a heavy snowstorm the other night. Despite the long shutter speed the lights of the oncoming car somehow captured a crisp image of the power lines alongside the road.

  • @rian :) Thanks. Its a little abstract but I’m like that sometimes. Actually, a lot of the time. You wouldn’t believe how many out of focus photos of moving light i have in Lightroom.

  • it is amazing how the power pole and lines came out
