Another Tram

It was snowing in Oslo on monday night - which inspired me to browse through some earlier winter shots. This image is taken with slow shutter speed - I think it was 1/25 seconds - while I was panning the moving tram with the camera. The slow shutter speed and the wet March snow accounted for the snow "stripes".

I discovered last winter that these "snow stripes" were easier to capture if you have the wind coming in from the side. Instead of having your back against the wind.  I usually bring an umbrella and carry a back-pack, and place the handle of the umbrella under the shoulder strap of the backpack, to have both arms free.
