Ferris Wheel & Christmas Market, Cork

 

 

On a crisp, dark December evening, there is nothing better than walking around Cork city with my camera and a tripod to capture photos of the cityscape at night.The erection of a Ferris wheel in the Christmas market on Grand Parade provided a great opportunity to take some long exposures and play with light in this brightly lit urban environment. 

The Ferris wheel provided the main focal point in these photos but the supporting lights around the street really emphasise the hustle and bustle around the Christmas market. Playing around with 15 second shutter speeds caught trails of car lights and, very unintentionally, the red, amber and green bulbs on the traffic lights together. A 30 second exposure captured the Ferris wheel lit up like a bright circle- exactly what I love about shooting in Manual mode.
