Ferris Wheel, nine ways

Schaghticoke Fair Ferris Wheel

Pretty x 9

We love this composite of long exposure shots that Sebastien took of the Ferris Wheel at the Schaghticoke Fair. Definitely view it big.

Here's a photoset with more of his long exposure shots from the fair. As he mentioned to us: "Photographers are attracted to Ferris wheels like moths to a flame. Shiny lights."

Earlier on AOA: Jason took some great long exposure shots at the Saratoga County Fair

I have stared at this for a good three minutes. I tried thinking of something to say. But, really, I've got nothing. I just want to continue being mesmerized. V. cool.

This is badass. (repost)

The whole set is very cool. It's like being at some crazy future-fair out of star trek..

Stunning work as always...Definitely brightened my day..The man is a pro... Thanks for sharing...

First Ferris Wheel constucted by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. for the 1883 World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago. George was an 1881 graduate of RPI (civil engineering).

Excellent work Sebastien. I love shooting at the fair. The rides make for great subjects after dark.
