comms tower
i was out riding on my bike a few weekends ago and as the weather was good i decided to take the long way home. this took me through an area i hadn't been to before, and as i passed this tower i thought it looked like a good place to return for a night shot. and that's exactly how that shit went down. i took my tripod as i knew i'd need a really long exposure, however i hadn't factored in the difficulty with focusing. there wasn't enough light to use the auto-focus, and after quite a lot of trial and error i wasn't having any luck with manual either. the solution came in the form of my wide-angle which didn't complain once and provided me with a nice sharp capture. incidentally the light stretching between the bottom-left of the tower and the trees is an aeroplane which was coming in to land at the nearby airport.
