For the first time, I was not sure I would get a photograph done today to post. I decided to wait and try more nighttime photography. At first, I was just playing around with some shots at my campsite. My sister had given me some solar LED lights last winter. They are different shapes – a hummingbird, a butterfly, a dragonfly and a flower. They light up after dark and change color. Over last winter, the light reflecting off the snow was fun. When I set up camp here, I put them out where I could see them from the trailer. They always make me smile! So, I thought it would be fun to capture them at night.
I was outside and admiring the glow of the interior lights in the trailer. It looked so cozy, so I shot some pictures of the trailer. I liked the effect.
Then, I noticed the moon was up and headed down to the shore – walking down the loop road a bit until I found a spot that had some nice reflection on the water. I was disappointed in my wide-angle shots. I do not like the glare from the moon and I’m not sure the best way to avoid this so I’ll have to keep working on this! I find it challenging and love being out that time of night.
My moon shots just were not what I was looking for but I will include the best below.
At the campsite, my favorites were:
