The Caen Christmas Market and Big Wheel –
Video and photography by Sabina Lorkin
This weekend I set myself a personal challenge, to capture the Caen Christmas Market to make a short video capturing the atmosphere.I’d also wanted to have some fun with long exposure photography to capture the ‘Big Wheel’ that is nearby every Christmas. Like the visitors that day I didn’t have much luck with the weather, much of the time it was raining. But I love a challenge so carried on regardless. This became particularly difficult for the night photography of the big wheel as I had to lean my camera skywards to capture the large Ferris Wheel which meant rain drops on the lens!
Hopefully I’ve managed to capture the happy Christmas atmosphere just the same. I thought it was a great Christmas market. Here is the video and afterwards some of the photos… Merry Christmas one and all.
