    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/xenedis] 'twas actually the neighbours Landrover Discovery. He drove up to say hi after checking his cattle and stopped for a quick chat. I was shooting at the time and managed to get this one.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/threthny] Thanks!
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/33085391@N00] Yep brake lights, but not mine. Thought it was interesting enough to post anyway.

    Lucky his headlights turn in and didn't ruin the shot!

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/apurdam] Oh there's three frames before this one I threw out due to headlights.

    Perfect photo.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/tristenmurray] Sure does, definitely a different result from a normal light-painting exercise.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/33085391@N00] Some would argue it's the only use of a Landrover where it might actually be reliable ;-)
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/chris44free] Thanks!

    Awesomely eerie. You could almost call it a "dead" flame tree. Where is the tree located?
  • David de Groot said:
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/21766727@N00] Just down the road from home, about 10km or so.
