Moonscapes 8||21 Feb. 2020|
It's been a few years since I've last put any nighttime photos online, so I figure these photos are due.|
My first term for such photos was "moonscape," although these were all taken before the moon had risen; however, since I've been calling the series moonscapes, I'll continue to do so.
The first is the joy of a twisty-turny trail and a sky full of stars.
|My favorite composition would include snow, but here trees bedecked with stars appeals to me.|
|Astronomical sunset was over an hour ago at the time of the following photo, but the lingering light of the sun is obvious, as is the beauty of a bright Venus dominating the sky.|
Winter 2019-2020 has seen very little snow, which is a disappointment to me, since snow brings out the middle ground and helps a composition. Of course, I hope there may yet be a snowstorm before the end of winter, but the odds are looking very much against it.
Camera note: I used a Pentax K3, with the SMC-A f2.8 20mm lens, for these photos, from 20 January 2010.
