When the holidays come around we usually start to adorn our cities and neighborhoods with bright lights to welcome the holiday season. Budapest is no different but they actually take it one step further and stun their citizens by wrapping their transit trains with over 30,000 bright blinking LED lights. The effect that this causes is absolutely breathtaking! Imagine a stream of lights flying past you across the city. One photographer was able to capture this visual spectacle by using a long exposure technique. These are awesome, take a look.
30,000 LED lights cover this train and with a long exposure this is the effect.
The effect is almost magical.
This one is my favorite.
Even at a stand still these trains look beautiful.
All aboard the space train. Next stop, Infinity and beyond.
It’s the little things that make the holiday spirit come alive and this is one prime example of that. I can only imagine seeing these flashes of light cruise up and down my city streets. I bet Budapest in the winter is a beautiful place to be.
