A Clear Night at Little Pond
This shot is lit only by the light of the moon, stars, and Megan's Parent's house. Exposed for 4 minutes at F22 with the Canon EFS 10-22 lens.
What an amazing place little pond is, and this was the first time I captured the bog and boardwalk at night. The moon bright, the sky was clear, and I didn't even need a flashlight to set up my camera. Notice how the boardwalk is sharp, but the rest of the image is definitely soft. The wind probably moved the vegetation, resulting in the soft background but the boardwalk and soupy wet peat weren't moving at all.
The question here? What is that white thing to the left of the boardwalk? I should have taken it out of the photo when I shot this one, but it wasn't bright enough to see everything. Any guesses? A hint: the pond is right behind the camera, at the end of the dock.
