Night watch

I haven’t really posted any night photography shots on my blog before, so the other evening I thought I’d quickly snap a scene I thought would be cool.  What originally inspired me to take this picture was the light above the gate and the light of the security hut.  I thought it would make a nice little photograph, balancing them on either side of the scene.  I was hoping to catch the security guard in the hut, but he was obviously out doing his rounds.  A human element would have been awesome.  I wanted to retain as much detail and clarity in this photograph, so I used the trusty ‘ol tripod and kept my ISO down to 100.  The exposure was obviously a good couple of seconds, so it picked up the trail of lights of the cars passing, which I found cool.  I think I’m going to have to take more night-time shots with the tripod…
