SOME Of TOM’S MOUN­TAIN­OUS FAVOURITES ARE a REAL vis­ual FEAST

light trails & full Moon

I was show­ing a group how to shoot the blue hour with car light trails dur­ing a work­shop on the Lo­foten Is­lands, Nor­way. The road lead­ing to the moun­tain was an im­por­tant part of the com­po­si­tion and re­quired a 30 sec ex­po­sure to al­low enough time for the car to drive through. The moon was a sec­ond ex­po­sure.

I ar­rived in dark­ness with only my head­torch and the light of a full moon to guide me. I in­tended to pho­to­graph the full moon set­ting over Mt. Rainier at sun­rise. But as the morn­ing broke, bands of clouds drifted in, ob­scur­ing the moon, and even­tu­ally erupted with colour.

This is a lo­ca­tion that I take my work­shop par­tic­i­pants to along the Bow River, Canada, in Jan­uary. There are of­ten lit­tle pools of wa­ter that haven’t frozen to give per­fect re­flec­tions that ap­pear like a porthole into an­other per­fectly re­flected di­men­sion. I’ll be go­ing back for one last trip in Jan­uary next year.
