136/365: Night Moves
I am doing this blog entry at 1:34 am. Technically, it’s the next day so I’m still meeting my daily requirement. Wanting to get out and do some night photography, and seeing how it doesn’t get dark until about 10:30 pm here now, I went for a drive around midnight and took the following photos between 12:30 – 1:15 am this morning. They’re not perfect, and a little out of focus because I had to manually focus the camera on….. well, nothing really. It’s hard to focus on something that is nearly black, so I just closed down my aperture and crossed my fingers. It’s kind of cool though, how much light and colour you can get from leaving your shutter open for 30 seconds. Anyway, here are the photos for today, Saturday, June 19. The last one here is of a tree in silhouette. The tree is on the edge of the water, almost hanging out over it. Look closely and you’ll see a star reflected in the water. It was taken down at the sand bars here in town.
