Naughty Commuter Skywatch

The idea had been bugging me. I was frequently stuck in traffic on my way home from work and as the nights got darker I was noticing the sunset in my wing mirror... coupled with the darkness that lay ahead - 2 skies for the price of 1! Each night for a week I got into my car, set my camera up and had it ready... and guess what? The bloody traffic lights were green and there were about half the cars on the road than there were the week before. I coasted home in record time and photo-less. Then there was the change in weather: we had storm clouds and rain clouds and grey evenings... then my shift at work changed so I was leaving half an hour later... anyway as you can see I finally got it out of my system!

While taking photos during a red light gives you something of an adrenaline rush, Brisbane Daily Photo does not endorse mixing photography with driving.

Happy Skywatch Friday!
