“A Happy Accident”

A Happy AccidentThe streaking effect in this picture was created by tilting the camera up during the last few seconds of a long exposure. I had accidently moved the tripod during an earlier shot and, having liked the effect, decided to do it intentionally. It’s what Bob Ross would call a “Happy Accident”. I want to extend a big thank you to Laurie and all the others responsible for my previous post being awarded post of the day at blog.photoblogs.org.
