A Boat Lift Light

murpworkschrome - A Boat Lift Light - Reflection Across the Water I image

A boat lift light shines out denoting the endmost point of a metal structure that dominates the marina. The industrial structure is a simple affair of straps, that can hoist a boat out of the river for servicing. The light is bright but in a wintery evening in February. However, there is very little need to illuminate the lifting of any boat.

It does however present a light source for low light photography.

I captured a minimalist picture of the light from the marina side. Then, after a short walk, a reflection of light across the water. Both from the same boat lift light source.

I like this opportunity to approach the subject from two opposing angles. It’s something to look out for in the future…

Street Lit

Street Lit – I took a short walk the other evening, it was the night of the first of two storms. Nothing had really started in earnest, there was some wind but nothing in the ‘storm’ category. I did avoid a large tree, which I had seen a large branch down from it, a couple of months ago.

It wasn’t long before a little rain started. This was a good first test of my Fujifilm X100V and its ‘weather sealing’ (the full weather sealing requires and filter for the front of the lens, which I purchased, when I got the camera). All worked perfectly well.

I had an idea of a photograph I wanted to take before I set out. It turned out as I had envisioned it and it wasn’t long before a couple more opportunities had presented themselves.

I didn’t intend to spend a lot of time out and didn’t need to, as I was pleased with the results. The image below is a building I pass most morning when I walk up, into Ely to get a cup of coffee from Silver Oak Coffee. Pleasing during the day, it looked spectacular at night

If you like the above image, take a look at murpworkschrome – monochrome – really pleased with ‘Street Lit Window’.

A Flash of Early Morning Light

The Early Morning Light

I’m often walking through the City, early in the morning and sometimes the light falls and scatters in just the right way.

In this photograph, I love the way that the light looks like its coming from the street lamp and how it scatters across the tarmac. I love how the traffic cone is framed. But then again, that’s just me…
