And I'm happy to know that your gear was not stolen while you were away, I'd be too worried to leave my stuff out like that. But I'm sure it was one hell of an experience for you. I have yet to do star trails like this, I will wait for spring/summer.
Oh no, I didn't leave my gear. It’s worth too much for me to walk away from, just to get a photo. That’s what made the 3 hour wait all the more difficult. Was just above freezing conditions and pitch black and I'm a few meters behind the camera pacing up n down trying to keep warm while at the same time getting spooked every 10 mins after hearing movement in the woods behind.
It was peaceful at the same time though just looking up at the stars. When your eves adjust to the dark more and more stars become visible. Not to mention all the other things moving up there. Saw some strange things.
I’m glad u like the photo. I don't to be honest, that why I never uploaded it to my gallery. Just wasn’t what I had seen in my head before taking it. Need more practice?
As for 1st & 2nd place. I think the word to best describe them would be "snaps". Basically they were picked because they were in the workplace theme category and management love anything that promotes the workplace.Jamie
- I feel for you there fella. I have enough trouble getting my 8 month old boy to sit still and you don't mind so much when it's your own.
But 8 that are not your own, wont sit still and the client wants 1st class shots!!!!! Very brave. I hope you pulled it off.
