Night Photography

One of Scott's hobbies is night photography. Patiently waiting for long exposures and fumbling around in the dark for tiny buttons on the camera add to the challenge. Some of these pictures were taken when it was pitch black out. The long exposures of the camera reveals colors that aren't visible to the naked eye.

The Milky Way galaxy is prominent in this photo at Saltery Lodge.  Several Shooting stars can also be seen.  For you stargazers, this was taken at 11pm Alaska time, Oct 11 2009.  Lat 55°21'N, 131°39'W

Our waterfall as viewed at the dead of night.  I used a flashlight to "light paint" the near field for a couple seconds during a long 6 minute exposure.
