One early morning trip a few weeks ago took me to Reddington Beach for some night sky shots. I thought that would be a good place for star shots since light pollution around here prevents good shots. I was kind of right about the stars but what really surprised me was everything else. I really liked how these came out. The settings were for 15 second exposure.
The beaches are supposedly closed at 4:00 in the morning and you can't park in the municipal parking areas but I laugh in the face of impending tickets. Actually I scampered around like a chipmunk on Red Bull. Quick quick quick. I don't know how much they enforce it but I was in and out in a hurry.
That's the Pathfinder sitting there in the lot. I personally think nighttime photographs are so much more interesting. The combination of light and dark, shadows and faint whispers of illumination are so mysterious. Daytime shots reveal everything - there is no wonder.
This was an intriguing enough of a shoot that I went out again two weekends ago. I'll post those sometime, before or after the break.
