Water, Light and Motion

The weir on the River Lagan in Lisburn Co.Antrim. It was the play of the lights on the water that caught my eye. I took a few at different shutter speeds to get a texture on the water when captured in that few seconds. This was shot was around the 26 seconds exposure.

Thanks for viewing.

The Island Art Centre.

Since I’m on the road early in the morning which means it’s still dark and there’s little or no people about. I set up my tripod on the path on the other side of the River Lagan to capture the lights and also the weir on the river. The Island art centre is in Lisburn in county Antrim, Northern Ireland. This part of the river is where the coal barge’s use to bring coal into the city from Belfast. There are no boats on the river now but the tow path that runs along it’s length to Belfast is now a walk/cycle path. It covers around 13 mile and takes in the Lagan valley regional park.
