Quinte West At Night: A Photo Series

A lightning bolt at night behind a tall bridge crossing a river.

WHEN INSPIRATION STRIKES

Or the lightning, whichever comes first. Justin Anderson continues to share his snapshots of our region at night, this time with a late-night trip around Quinte West.

TRENTON GREENBELT

A lightning bolt at night behind a tall bridge crossing a river.

“A photo of Norampac from the Trenton Green Belt Conservation Area. I knew a storm was coming in and I could hear it, but I didn’t expect this. I took this photo with a two-second shutter speed with my tripod down low on the rocks. Following this photo—about six seconds later—I was in my car!”

QUINTE WEST LIBRARY + CITY HALL

A black and white photo of a curved building with many windows, and the moon high in the sky.

“Quinte West Library and City Hall with the moon. I shot this photo in multiple exposures.”

FIRE DEPARTMENT

A fire department at night with lights on.

“A special thanks to the Quinte West Fire Department for letting me take this photo. Yes, the gang even opened the door and turned on the lights for me!”

THE CLOCK TOWER

A streetscape at night with a large clocktower and light streaks from cars.

“Downtown Trenton and “The Trenton Tower” as I call it. The clock tower is a symbol of downtown Trenton, it has always been there and is well photographed. I don’t shoot this way a lot. I love the technique and the art of long exposure and what moving light does within the frame (it’s a form of light painting). You always learn when it comes to photography; when looking back at this photo I feel that I should have used a ND filter or a light polarizer. I’m still happy with the image.”

OLD BANK CAFE

A street intersection at night with blurred cars. A building with a sign: Old Bank Cafe.

“This was the first photo I took in this series. And I knew I wanted to get this photo in Frankford at the Old Bank Cafe. I love this old building at the corner of Trenton Street and Mill Street; FYI, you have to try the Amaretto and pistachio latte!”

TRENT PORT MARINA

A boardwalk along the water at night with a bright moon in the sky.

“I took this photo from the Trent Port Marina. To get this photo I shot with multiple exposures and then converted into HDR (Medium). I think if there were some clouds in the sky this photo would pop. Amazed that I caught some stars in the photo considering the light pollution.”

TRENTON SKATE PARK

A skate park at night with a light streak around the edge.

“The Trenton Skate Park at Centennial Park. I love the graffiti art. This was a photo I knew I wanted to take and tried four nights in a row to get. There were too many kids in the park at 11 pm, so I waited until 1 am. This is a photo shot in bulb mode on my camera. To achieve this I locked the shutter open with my remote shutter, and walked around the bowl with my cell phone light on and pointed it back at the camera. When I got back, I unlocked the shutter and BOOM: this is the photo you get!”

THE VETERAN SKYWAY

A bridge at night with lights reflected in the water below.

“A calm night at Fraser Park with a view of the entrance to the Trent Severn Waterway. Someone needs to change a couple of light bulbs if you look closely!”
