zoom that wheel

Went out with Dan, Hannah and Andy from the Flickr Photomish group on Friday night for a walk round London town into the wee early hours of the morning. The London Eye was closed and wasn’t running which meant we could get good long exposures. Normally the slow movement means you get these blurred shot which are nice but it means that zoom exposures don’t work as well. Ended up at the HMS Belfast around dawn and the light was beautiful.
Thanks to Dan for reminding me of this zoom technique. i’ve used it before with London eye works much better if its not moving and at night. Also got lucky with the tide it was out and turning so the Thames was really calm and smooth for a change.
