So, I meant to post these photos a couple of days ago but I was delayed. Wednesday started out pretty great because I went out early Wednesday morning and shot these images, came home and slept quite a bit of the day and woke up with a pain.
Each night I go out amazes me more with the vastness of the universe. The more I go out late at night the more I can see the varying shades of night. Just like learning to shoot in the day is challenging and initially you only like bright sunny days and slowly that changes as your knowledge of lighting changes. The night is just as impressive. So, I went out to the back pasture to do these, it was frigid.
I'm sure by any astrophotography standards these are a newbie quality; but to me they're a whole new world of photography. I love how different this is. I have to take my knowledge of the landscape, and shooting in the day and transfer it to night. There is guess work involved and I'm not always pleased with my shots. I realize I need a far better tripod then the one that I purchased at the discount store.
So, about the stones part of this post. I likely have kidney stones. Fun, right? I'm growing my own rocks. I turned down a CT scan - but if I have to return that's the first test I get. Anyways, let's hope that it has passed for now. It's made me tired and moody this week.
I'm still very excited about this type of photography.
It is definitely time for bed.
But after a day at the hospital, evening cleaning, editing portraits and another hour out photographing the stars I am tired.
