6-19-2020–“I’m going to stay up until sunset” photoshoot.

Well, that didn’t happen.  I invited my nephew, Rhys to come out doing some night photography with me.  I don’t think he understood the scope of the undertaking.

We took a test shot and Rhys thought it was cool.  He was slightly off put by the dark tho!

I had him pose for a photo.  I came out slightly blurry because he never cease to move!

We caught some falling stars as well!

We stopped at a barn in Van Buren and avoiding the cars lights were fun, but full on worth it!

The last stop, because, Rhys, at this point was snoring, was the Acadian Village.  I got some pretty decent shots there.

Here is hoping to a clear night again soon!

05-23-2020–Milkyway

My first stop, after getting some establishing shots on teh track,  was Pelletier Island’s causeway.  While driving one evening, I eyeballed it and thought I might have a good shot at some photos.  I was correct!

Then, in my trek around the lake – I found myself at the boat landing – across from Pelletier Island!

Then I stopped in at Lakeview, but no joy – it was behind the mountains.  So, me and the HRV took off and headed up towards Eagle Lake – and in a potato field…..

I struck a bit of gold in the 1st photo.  A shoot star!  I get rather lucky when I go out and tend to catch one every time. 

04-18-2020–Night Shoot and Sunrise

I decided it was time for a night shoot!  Shooting time is shorter, it seems.  I ventured out around 130 am, having left my camera outside to get used to the “cold” for a few hours.

I headed up to Long Lake and none of the spots I wanted to shoot from were suitable (to much light).  I did find one, but I wasn’t happy with it.  So I ventured back towards Grand Isle and found a spot near the Golf Course.  After a few snaps there, I hit up the boat landing in Grand Isle.

I noticed the moon was rising and headed into the sunset.  I had a place in mind.

Victoria’s Tree!

I knew the sunrise wouldn’t be super crazy spectacular – no clouds to capture the light, but I knew the colors around the tree would be fabulous!

I was right!
