Andy's Angles: The Slow Lane

Today, it's another shot from my recent pancake lens/slow shutter speed experiment.

Same morning as yesterday's picture, but a different location.  This is a shot above Interstate 81, taken from Reeves Street in Dunmore.  The headlights are southbound.  Taillights are northbound.

Like yesterday, it was shot with a 24 mm lens, with an exposure of 25 seconds..  Trees and weeds obstruct the view.  I'll have to try it with a non-prime lens next time.  I was attracted to the prime lens here because it is more "low light friendly."

It wasn't the best morning to shoot.  It's tough to tell in this picture, but there was a snow shower at the time.  Auto focus wouldn't kick in because of the lack of light, so I had to do it manually, which wasn't easy with glasses wet from the snow.

The experiment was promising enough to try it again.
