Inverness at Night

Every time I walk home across the Victorian footbridge over the River Ness, I look across and think how lovely it must be to capture the lights of the main bridge reflected in the river – so tonight I took my camera for a walk to see how I got on… I even remembered to take my mini tripod, and to set my ISO on as low a setting as possible, and to set the shutter timer to prevent camera shake.

So overall it went OK, in that happily I definitely got loads of sharp images, but nevertheless I find the colours of the lights are disappointing, insipid somehow – the lights on the main bridge change at regular intervals, and although that probably looks great at a fast shutter speed, it seems the quick change almost cancels out the vibrant colour range over a longer exposure…

I’m happy enough with the way this shot turned out, though, and I know I’ll have plenty of opportunities to try and try and try again to get it right, just exactly the way I want it 🙂
