As an artist living in the Providence area, WaterFire has long been one of my favorite subjects.  Once a year, WaterFire hosts their "Clear Currents" event, where people paddle kayaks mounted with illuminated neon koi fish in "schools" up and down the rivers between the fires.  This year I decided to shoot some long exposures of the koi schools in an attempt to capture light trails on the water.  I ended up stacking three 20 second exposures in photoshop for the final image, allowing me to capture 60 seconds of light trails without over-exposing the buildings around the river.
