Motorway Light Trails Photography

M40 Motorway, Oxfordshire

M40 Motorway, Oxfordshire

Over the past year or so I’ve been working on a series of long-exposure photos of a variety of motorways and roads throughout the UK and Europe. In theory the technique is simple but I’ve spent a lot of time perfecting the location scouting, exposure and camera settings, composition, weather and post-processing that’s gone into these photos. In the future I’ll be sharing a how-to video with some new and unique tips!
