In The Evening

In the evening, When the day is done
I’m looking for a woman, but the girl don’t come
So don’t let her, Play you for a fool
She don’t show no pity baby, she don’t make no rules

In The Evening – Led Zeppelin

No idea why the title popped in my head other than I knew the Led Zeppelin song that started with it. Seemed to fit the image so I went with it.

I shot this in March while standing on a bridge over Rock Creek Parkway in Washington DC. I almost forgot about it but I figured what the hell and give it the college try and see what I came out with. Plus I’m a sucker for light trails.

I have no idea how I ended up with the final image. I lost count of the number of layer masks that were used and the various filters that I was using to get to it. I can say I basically edited the image in two parts. The sky and ground areas were effectively two separate portions when it came to editing. Thats why I lost count of the layer masks. In the end I could live with it so I said good enough!

Full resolution.

  1. I am behind on my reviews, work has occupied me. I love the photo of the night sky in the metropolitan area. The lights of cars go zipping by like one long stream of light. Time to wind down.
