Trails of light through Napier

This is a style of photography I haven’t tried for a few years. It took half an hour of standing around and waiting for traffic to come from north to south along Marine Parade. This roundabout is in the heart of Napier. You can see The Dome behind. The road to the right is Browning Street. Most of the cars were coming up Browning Street or coming towards the camera along Marine Parade. Light trail photography can be quite unpredictable. Especially when the lights are coming from moving vehicles that you don’t know where they’re heading. With headlights being so much brighter than the red of trail lights, too many cars coming towards the camera don’t make for a pleasing photograph. In the end this was a motorhome heading around the roundabout and south along the parade. It was a 5 second long single exposure.
