A synthetic long exposure of 60 stacked frames; Kessock Bridge at Inverness in cool evening light.

An unusual scene for me: taken in the suburb of Kessock which gives its name to the bridge at Inverness, three old wooden stanchions lead out into the Beauly Firth while the water flows through this urban landscape.

This is no one mere long exposure photograph: I made 60 separate exposures over the course of 7 minutes and stacked them - the result being that clouds have moved further in the sky for the same degree of motion-blur in the water than they would have with an equivalent "shorter" long exposure.

By the time I'd finished making the source images, the tide had risen and water was lapping around the feet of the tripod.
