Road Trip to the Stars


Went on an impromtu little road trip to the mountains in October with Ian Harding and David Austin. I love those short, unscheduled moments of adventure when we all grab our cameras and drive to wherever with no real plans or ideas of what we might find. It was close to 11pm, completely dark and with a nice full moon as our strobe. As the night got colder I only managed to get these (because each took so damn long to expose) while Ian and David played with lights and torches.

I wasn’t expecting such bright, vivid and colourful results as I was only looking to get the star trails. I now love and cherish my Daylight-Night photos, as Ian kindly titled them.

I was lucky and found the northern axis and the Polaris star (little bright dot in the center of the third photo.) Very exciting!

Exposure ~10 minutes with the light from a full moon.

  6. I am starting my very own blog to talk about my personal photography experiences. Do you find this hard or even simple to post consistently?
