We spent a couple of hours on the dock this evening. It was nearly pitch dark out there, there was a really nice light breeze, and the mosquitoes were on hiatus. We lay there for quite awhile looking at the stars and listening to the sounds of the marsh around us. After the family went inside, I took several long-exposure shots of the stars and the area around the dock. This one was more of an accident, but I really like the way it turned out. It is a nearly four-minute exposure, and I got bored waiting so I answered some emails on my Blackberry. Well, the small hand-held device was the most powerful light out there tonight!

In other news, if you want to see something pretty cool, check out the twelve-hour time-lapse movie I made yesterday. I perched my trusty D2X outside our bedroom window on my heavy tripod and left it there all day. You can see the movie here.

This is just too cool, I've never tried any long exposures before, I should try! The time lapse was awesome, what a cool idea!

The movie was marvelous and THIS year you did not beat me to my own nearby beach of Topsail I stopped by in April ;-) and in fact I am on record pace with 5 beach trips so far this year ;-)
