Not on the top but they would be handy!

These are pictures of us out for a drive on the family farm last Easter- good fun and rather interesting but these two pictures have bugged me ever since.

We were 3/4 of the way up a mountain (on the farm)nobody else for miles except those on horseback why do these two photo's have blue lights under the car? I know of no lights under there, I can't find any under there and in deep shadow I can't see how it can be a camera thing so what are they?

Please can somebody put me out of my misery?

At a guess I would think it is sun light coming through the gap in your nice alloy wheels and on to the ground in the dark area of the pics.
From the pics it looks as if the sun is at 1 o'clock as you view, if the camara is a digital job then it has to make some ajustments to the light balance, including colour, so maybe thats where the blue part of the light comes from.

If you look at this one this is about where I was on the previous pictures, obviously this is on the way down.

Being is a relatively deep cutting I am not convinced that its the sun.

I like the force field option though - was that an optional extra mine had?

Got it, the spot on the roof is a hole right?

A lazer went through it, then the floor.

Thus letting the sun light through :mrgreen:

It looks to me like a small spark...thus the blue color of the light. You might want to get under there and have a look at night...see if you can make it happen again.

I had that idea as well and searched extensively but no. In fact I can't see anything that might spark.
Added to that these pictures are compressed to fit - on a full size image it looks much brighter.

Sorry if I'm getting picture heavy but see if this helps anybody?

As far as I can see the force field and the laser are the most probable ideas yet

Sorry to rain on the techno parade but....

Most likely a droplet of water (sweat?) on the lense.
You're angled slightly up facing the sun in the first 2 photos which looks from the shadow of the RR to be middayish so the sun would most likely have been hitting the droplet at an angle which might be enough for full internal reflection hence the light. The light seems to be in the same place on both photos which coincidently are both similarily well framed (well done on the camera work!)
In the third photo you're faced down so the droplet would have no effect.

Thats my guess anyway :thumb:

Its chromatic aberration.
Its to do with light hitting the edge of one (or more) of your lens elements and producing an aberration (dot or fringe of wrong colour).

Oh common Tim, we all know it's the spirit of Lord Lucas looking for a ground to disconnect. :mrgreen:
