evening lights by ladyrapid evening lights by ladyrapid
The other day I was out running. A run that took me from the city out in the rainy woods. Moist air came sweeping, creating a full gloom atmosphere by the lights at the runners track. I stop in my steps, stand for a while and turn back home.
Gear is loaded, tripod clicks in place, traffic avoided on my way back, I'm here again.
Camera starts shooting, bulb mode is on. I hold the umbrella over the camera and some shelter is left for myself as well.
It's now 1 hour since I ran the tracks. All I can hear is water hitting the nylon of the umbrella, it makes this sound of drumming.
In the middle of the woods, here I stand and watch the evening lights spread it's life. I go home, happy. Maybe today wasn't such a bad day after all.

Brilliant end result, it is also very interesting to hear what preceded the actual pressing if the shutter.

A bit of story always enriches the artwork. I enjoy when I read other peoples journeys towards their art and therefore I share some myself sometimes.

I don't think you need to travel the world to see a runners track in the woods a misty evening :).
