Urban landscapes: Ferris Wheel lights

FERRIS WHEEL AT NIGHT, CALGARY STAMPEDE, ALBERTA

This is the second straight year I’ve taken my camera & tripod to the Stampede midway and once again, I wasn’t disappointed. I photographed the ferris wheel last year, but found a different perspective for this composition.
It’s funny; the ferris wheel doesn’t move fast or for long (there’s only one spot to get on/off, so it’s constantly stopping to swap passengers), but a four-second exposure makes it look like a spinning top. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter (used only to slow down the exposure a bit more).
