Intersection of Deansgate Locks

This was taken from the corner of Gmex Metrolink Station at the top of the stairs that lead down to the bars and night clubs at Deansgate Locks. I walk past this view most Thursday evenings and have wanted to see what a long exposure would look like on a busy Friday evening where there would be a lot of traffic. So a couple of weeks back (inspired by a new brief at university) I took out my camera and tripod to try and get the photo I had in my mind.

This isn’t exactly what I wanted, because there was too much light coming from the offices behind the bridge, so my exposure time couldn’t be much longer than a minute. However, I did manage to capture both cars turning in the road and a train pulling out of Oxford Road Station moving towards Deansgate.
