Beyond The Trees
Taking pictures in the night is something I enjoy doing. These images show that there is as much life that goes on in the night as there is in the day. These “Light Trails” as I would call them, make me feel that these crane operators are like artists, who “paint” the night sky with the arms of the crane. Sometimes these “Light Trails” are loud and bold, at other times, they are quietly working away. Some seem so harmonious and elegant in their movements, at other occasions, erratic in their behaviour. Their unpredictable nature intrigues me to capture them in action.
By looking at these photographs, you will be able to experience the spirit of those moments with me.
