Quite a lot usually happens in 2 years. Luckily for me, this didn’t. Going back to the same place on Grimsay, North Uist and being able to take the same picture, only better. It was always my intention if I went back to try and get this picture again of the light trails of cars going over the causeway from Grimsay to North Uist and I think I have a winner in what is going to go onto the canvas I still have yet to get printed up. The original one from 2009 was blurry and was from the first couple of months with my A200 DSLR. Now in 2011, having had the camera for a good few years, I knew it better and how to work it better (along with editing photos in photoshop), and it is much crisper. It is sharper, has better colours and even has a sheep on it! The same principle was used as the first one, layering the images up instead of one continuous shot, this was because of the sheer lack of cars going across the causeway at 11 o’clock at night.
I could see cars in the distance exiting Balivanich on Benbecula, crossing the causeway to Grimsay and I would get excited thinking this would be another one only for it to turn off before.
