Joe Lenton, 38, of Mattishall, uses lights from cars and other vehicles to create light trails in nighttime photographs of the city. The white lights show cars travelling towards the camera and the red lights the ones travelling away.

The ability to capture the lights without seeing cars is done by creating a long exposure setting on the camera and shooting at time when they are going by.

Mr Lenton runs two photography companies, including Original Art Photography, and said he likes shooting at night as the city is much quieter than during the day.

'I especially like shooting at nighttime as I find the city more vivid and punctuated by the lights,' he said. 'Also as it is much quieter when it is dark many people don't see the city like this during the night time and how it is different.

'The area around the market is also a good place for photos especially at Christmas time as so many of the shops around there have really good decorations so I kind of gravitate towards there and City Hall.'

As part of his businesses Mr Lenton runs photography workshops and uses photos such as these as examples for his students before they start taking their own.
