February 11 ~ closet colors / star trail
Hallo. It's a clear night and I've been wanting to shoot some star trail pics for a while--haven't done anything of that nature for almost a year--however I just did one about an hour ago and the light pollution wasn't so hot. I would get better results further from the cities (and, more comfortably, on a warmer evening). The next (and last, for this evenings) one is currently writing to the card, so we'll see if that's any better. It won't be as impressive as my aurora pics, etc, from outside Fairbanks last March (and those could be expanded upon, too). Actually, those ranged from about ten to thirty seconds, whereas these are ten to twenty minutes. Bobb and I did a few star trail pics while we were waiting for the aurora one night, but the northern lights were always the main attraction.
So, in the meantime, I've posted a pic here from indoors... the inner lights, one may say. I was just playing with the rear curtain flash setting and looking at the color arrangement in my closet, and I liked the way these colors worked together.
Gear: Nikon D90, Nikkor AFD 50mm f/1.4, SB-600
