East Whins by night

EW by night
Winter nights in the Park are dark. This is for a reason: street lighting is minimised to keep disturbance of night animals as low as possible. Also in East Whins, our own estate, is this principle followed: little lights at ground level are barely enough to guide us along the paths and everybody carries a torch. The picture is of blocks 1 and 2, at 6400 ASA and 1.4 sec shutter speed, camera in hand. The image looks brighter and more colourful than in reality, due to the superior sensor in my Canon SLR. I couldn’t bring myself to darken the image in Photoshop.
