A new thing

I was noodling around the Web today. You know, I have been thinking and thinking how to photograph Devils Tower in a new way. I already put it in my calendar one year and I don't want to do the same photo again. But the road around her only goes so far. In fact, she pretty much is what she is. Amazing, but how to do it differently?

Well. I have always liked those night time photography photos and I always assumed they had special equipment. I have seen night time photos where the stars look like hundreds of pin pricks of light in the sky. I found out tonight that you don't need special equipment. I can do a long exposure and catch the stars! Ooooh, exciting thought. Of course, I can't do like Andromeda or something like that, but hey, pinprick stars all around the tower might be nice.

I will experiment.

Hey Lil, I'm glad you're enabling comments again. There are times I read and want to comment and I'm too lazy to email. :) Now I can leave a comment (and I've just discovered I can edit my comments - even better!)

Your photo was good. I hope you get lots of votes.

Blessings, Jules

Is there a photo somewhere? Did I miss it? I love your photos.

Hi Jules. Yeah, I know it's much easier to have comments. Well, I don't know how long I'll have them!

Kathryn, on the post right before this one I have a link to a bird photo I entered into a contest in San Diego. They'll announce winners at end of September. There are almost 800 entries in my category so I'm not holding my breath, but it was fun getting on page one online anyways. :)
