The Edinburgh Wheel and Princes Street  -  1

It has been interesting to work out how to get the most satisfying results.  When is it best to open the shutter and for how long,
as the lights turn on and off and move from the centre of the wheel to the edge or vice versa, as the wheel rotates and stops?
