Freaky isn't it ? And the light is quite different from daylight.
Shows how much we can't see with our own eyes.

Great colour and composition. The long exposure really works. That sky looks like mid morning. Amazed at the sharpness of the tree with such a long exposure.
PS why don't you put grey day out of its misery its not doing your portfolio any good. ;-D

If you are lucky enough to get a clear freezing night with a full moon, it often is very still. It became more difficult soon after, with high clouds drifting through, and was beginning to rain when I got back to the car.

Thanks Keith I'll have to get into Wewolf mode and give it a go.

wow, how do you meter such a scene? my metering goes to 30 secs max. Do you use the bulb function?

Yes, bulb, or equivalent setting, with cable release. I also normally use a manual camera, so there is no worry about batteries. You can do it with more modern equipment, but it needs a little forethought. Exposure is really by trial and error. This is one time when I do take notes!
After a bit of web research and a couple of trial runs, you have something to work from.

Excellent Keith. I saw something similar in a mag. The photographer had one setup with a large rock on the right side of the image, and every so often he fired a flash on the rock. The finished effect was amazing. Another was of water, with a couple of rocks above water level. For measured amounts of time he shone a spotlight on them. In the finished image, the rocks were golden. Cheers.

I've read about that, firing a flash a number of times, but never tried or seen it.

Supurb - its only the start trails that give away the time of day.

Thanks. It still amazes me, what the camera sees that we can't.
