K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

When K’lee set the theme for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I thought I was going to be a bit stumped, because he gave us the prompt; Get your motors running; Cool cars that caught your eye.

Now I’m not really a car person, so it left me at a loss for inspiration, so I cheated.

I used cars you can’t see.

I have done experiments with cars and light painting before, but this time I’ve added a little movement to the process.

I went out and took a few long exposure shots of passing traffic; some from parked at the side of the road, some from looking down on the lights, standing on a bridge and a couple with the camera lying on the dashboard as I drove home.

I also made a little gif to show the creative process in action.

K’lee will speed his pictures to you HERE, later.

Now you can show us what you’ve got to offer…


To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.



The Night Garden.

Having spent a few weeks getting our new garden looking nice, I finally got round to putting the candle holders out last night and decided to try some long exposure shots when it got dark.

A few carefully placed solar lights added some extra illumination and, with a little digital fiddling the results really are rather lovely.
