One hour shoot

So today wasn't a planned trip out at all, it has been very windy the entire day, so I was just planning on relaxing tonight - but suddenly the wind died down and I decided to take a drive to see if I could find something to photograph. The "Puttesund" bridge is about a 5 minute drive from my house, and I have never photographed it before, I didn't even know that it was possible to walk down under it without walking through a lot of peoples yards. I parked alongside the road and did a little climb down there and set up my equipment. 

The Sony is ready to go.

So the light was going away pretty rapidly, but I managed to set up the camera and put on the Lee Big Stopper and do a long exposure - for the final image the exposure was 2 minutes and 40 seconds long, so luckily there was no wind. After I had gotten my image I just sat there for about 30 minutes and watched the sunset while I took some snapshots with my iPhone.

All in all it was a nice evening, and I'm glad I went out. I really enjoy this time of year, the sun is up for much longer so its no problem to go out late and still have some light to play with, and the temperature is comfortable. Hopefully it won't be to long until my next outing, next weekend I'm going on a one day camping trip with a photographer friend of mine in Ørje, so I'm hoping for good weather. 

So until next time, have a good one!
