Six-month long photo exposure

Photographer Justin Quinnell strapped the camera to a telephone pole overlooking the Gorge, where it was left between December 19, 2007 and June 21, 2008 - the winter and summer solstices - for a 15,552,000 second exposure.

UK-based photographer Justin Quinnell claims to hold photography’s newest record: a half-year exposure of Bristol’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, using a pin-hole camera made from empty drinks can.

The sweeping arcs over the bridge mark the six month course of the sun, from Dec 19 2007 to June 21 2008 — the winter and summer solstices. Quinnell’s father passed away on 13 April, 2008, and he says he can pinpoint the exact position of the sun at the moment of his death.
