After taking pictures of the Christmas lights I turned to face the road behind me, saw a double decker bus approaching and couldn't resist this snap! โญ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜โญ๏ธ #nikon #longexposure #lighttrails


_marisol: Wow, that's cool Charmy. I took pretty much of these a couple of years ago...think I should start again. Really like this, such a great work. Need to go to bed so good night my dear ๐Ÿ› ๐ŸŒ› โคโคโค

charmychelle: Hello again, dear Mari! Itโ€™s now raining quite heavily outside and we have a yellow warning for rain and snow, so the weather is turning a bit crazy again! But at least Iโ€™m safe inside and able to respond to comments here. ๐Ÿ˜Š Iโ€™ve also been looking at your light trails images in your gallery and Iโ€™ve always been impressed by them. ๐Ÿ˜‰ For this one, I was just setting myself up for a shot when I could see the bus approaching the island. I had to be quick as this would be my only chance to get a high trail as not many double deckers or trucks pass through this area. I had one chance to get it right and fortunately I did! Iโ€™m absolutely thrilled that you like it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Iโ€™m glad youโ€™ve had a great celebration with your family and that Sandra was happy with her gifts, I wouldnโ€™t mind having a Star Master for myself hehe ๐Ÿคฉ Iโ€™ll tell you more about my Christmas later in the next photo, for now have a great evening, mi pana, abrazos ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—

cameraal: Love those double decker buses!!

Posted: 2017 Dec 22 1:40:52 AM

charmychelle: Thanks Al, I do too but I think that there are fewer around than there used to be outside of London. One reason for this is that weโ€™ve got quite a few low bridges and I guess the bus companies didnโ€™t want to keep limiting their route...but I donโ€™t think that they will ever go away. ๐Ÿ˜Š Not many pass through this area so I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time, and get it right on my first attempt! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Hope youโ€™re having a wonderful Christmas Day! โœจโญ๏ธโœจ

charmychelle: Thank you Daniel, I barely had enough time to set my gear up when I saw the bus approaching the island. It was a good job that everything turned out so well in the end! โ˜บ๏ธ

hogman72664 or david: Never seen a double decker goe that fast heheh. Great shot, must find time to have another bash at this. Love it, keep up the good clicks :):)xx

Posted: 2017 Dec 22 12:13:40 PM

charmychelle: Haha well it helped that there was a green light so it didnโ€™t have to stop. But I guess that it was slowing down towards the left, judging by those intriguing shapes in the trails... I would love to be able to do this in a city with a landmark, if ever I had the time. But I was happy to be able to get a high trail here. ๐Ÿ˜Š Thank you so much, my friend, have a great evening! xxx

charmychelle: Thanks Maria, I had seen that traffic was moving smoothly so I decided to set my camera up. Then I saw the bus approaching the island while I was still setting it up so I had to be real quick! I was really after a high trail and I knew that this was best opportunity, perhaps for the entire evening. But I really didnโ€™t fancy staying out for long then as it was quite cold! I hope youโ€™ve had a wonderful Christmas, my friend! โœจโญ๏ธโœจ

jerry0522: Awesome light streaks!!!

Posted: 2017 Dec 23 12:44:17 PM

charmychelle: Thank you Jerry! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I really was quite amazed by the result, I didnโ€™t expect to see so many trails and colours. But looking back, that double decker did have a lot of lights, if you also included the destination. I had to finish my camera setup very quickly as I had already seen it approach the island. I just clicked the shutter and hoped...and I got an even better result than I could ever have wished for, not bad for the first attempt! ๐Ÿ˜„ Hope you had a great Christmas! โœจโญ๏ธโœจ

mntrix: This is cool , wish I knew how to take shots like these

Posted: 2017 Dec 25 3:15:25 PM

charmychelle: Thank you, you know, it wasnโ€™t so long ago when I was thinking the same thing when I saw other shots of light trails...๐Ÿ˜Š It takes a lot of patience, more than anything. You think of the best places where traffic is moving smoothly and also the background, if possible. You can just use trial and error with the settings, a 4 second shutter is a good place to start, and keep adjusting the aperture...thatโ€™s just my method but every one has their own method to suit them. ๐Ÿ˜Š Good luck! ๐Ÿ‘

cameraal: Miss Charmy...had a very quiet Xmas day..watched a few movies, had a couple of glasses of wine with my dinner..overall a good day. โค

Posted: 2017 Dec 26 12:30:14 AM

charmychelle: That sounds pretty similar to mine! ๐Ÿ˜Š I just want to relax and enjoy this Holiday Season as January is going to be quite a stressful month, particularly towards the end as thatโ€™s when my Dadโ€™s operation will be... Have a great mornight! โœจโญ๏ธโœจ

el murko: If you've seen my comments on Marisol's light trails, you'll know I LOVE this, esp. having lived in London for 10 years. Beautiful shot!

Posted: 2018 Sep 13 12:45:37 AM

charmychelle: Thank you so much! Iโ€™m also a big fan of Marisolโ€™s light trail shots and sheโ€™s a big influence of mine, for sure! ๐Ÿ˜Š London would be a fascinating place to practice this kind of photography, but as Mari has proven, they can look just as stunning in rural areas. ๐Ÿ˜Ž This was actually supposed to be a test shot, but no other double deckers came down and subsequent shots were not as good, so I had to go with this one! ๐Ÿ˜

Posted: 2018 Sep 29 1:22:25 PM

el murko: First time I've really sat down and gone thru your photos. Wonderful, prepare for "like" spam ๐Ÿ˜† Hope dad and you are good, tc

Posted: 2018 Sep 13 12:47:51 AM

charmychelle: Thank you again, I really appreciate that. ๐Ÿ‘ Though since March Iโ€™ve had precious little time for all things photography related, apart from an occasional quick phone shot. Yes, weโ€™re fine thanks! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Posted: 2018 Sep 29 1:28:56 PM
el murko: You're very welcome, and im glad you're good. London busses only come in 3s, then none for ages haha
