Lagoon Bridge Wellington

Lagoon Bridge is lit up here with lights as part of the LUX festival. Captured at night it was taken in front of the albatross sculpture. It’s a 6 second exposure with a wide angle lens as I wanted to include the full length of the bridge and it’s reflection. If you look closely you can see a thin line in the middle above the clouds which is from a plane flying out of the airport from behind Mount Victoria off to the right.

On the far right is the boat shed a popular venue for weddings and parties. There were a lot of people around when this was taken but because of the long exposure time the movement of them makes them disappear as if by magic. On a bright sunny day the water in this lagoon is clear enough to almost see to the bottom. It’s a popular sheltered area of the harbour for people learning to kayak and dragon boat race.
