31 Mar Rivers of Gold!
Any city looks great at night, and when there is a freeway in the shot I love how it turns into a river of gold… This is a result of the long shutter speed required to capture enough light to make a picture at night. This photo required for the shutter to be open for 30 seconds, so it records the lights from the cars on the freeway for 30 seconds, and it ends up a golden colour when headlights and brake lights mix together.
I took this photo from Kings Park, and what surprised me was how busy Kings Park was at night. There were cars and people everywhere! There is a lookout that I used to get this shot, if you’re up for trying some cityscape at night and you’re in Perth… this is the spot!
