Welder Reston Metro-7145

I got off the METRO at the new station which is still under construction. A welder was working near the exit. Great gobs of molten metal would fall and splatter on the floor below. Fortunately I had a camera with me.

It was a bit of a challenge to get a decent exposure. The work lights are not nearly as bright as the sparks. The sparks kept over exposing and losing color. I finally hit on a compromise and finished it in post.Welder Reston Metro-7179What a fun challenge to try to¬†get a shot like this on the fly. I wouldn’t offer it for sale, but it is fun to look at here.
