Madison Indiana Photography

” Madison Indiana Main Street Snow at Night “

I am just about over all this snow for one year, we have had about 18-20 inches in the last week, a couple snowstorms is nice but this is getting ridiculous !!  I would love to get out into the countryside to get a few landscape shots but they have us on this Level One emergency which means authorized vehicles only whatever that means, considering I saw a lot of unauthorized vehicles traveling up and down Main Street tonight I might just venture out tomorrow.

So tonight I thought I might just take a walk down on Main Street here in Madison Indiana and play around with some real long exposure shots of the cars moving up and down the street. I  captured about 50 images and after a long look came away with a couple shots I kinda liked, here is on of the shots I kept, this was a 15 second exposure and it does have a pretty cool look to it.

It’s funny all the looks you get from people as they drive by, I am sure they were wondering what I was up to. It was rather fun standing on Main Street with my tripod and camera pointing it at the cars as they went by. The looks I got were definitely worth standing in the snow and cold !!

  3. Way cool. I’ve been considering playing more with night photography, but I think I’ll wait ’til it’s warmer. <:\

  4. That is a nice, crisp shot, Bernie. It’s hard to imagine the street that deserted.

  5. I agree, those starbursts really make this photo stand. Huh, you get those looks, too? I thought it was just me! 😉 It is worth it..every darn shutter click.

    • It cracks me up how people will actually just stop and stare when you bring out a tripod 🙂

  8. A nice nighttime snowy street scene. Long exposures are fun with cars zipping by. LOL on the looks you got while out snapping shots. That does happen. 🙂

  9. I clicked on your image and really enjoyed the large view. So clear and crisp with miles of depth to it. I know what you are talking about as far as folks looking at you. Anna and I carry cards to hand out when people ask. Once they get a card, they start telling us all sorts of things about the subject we are taking photos of.
