10/365

I went out to a prairie last night and took some pictures of stars. I need a tripod and a remote, because last night I was limited to placing the camera on a (crooked) railing and holding my finger on the shutter button, all the while hunched over because I had the strap around my neck still (there was no way I was putting my camera on a railing over a pitch black alligator infested prairie and stepping away from it.) I was really surprised by the amount of light pollution there was and how light the skies turned out. It was 11 o'clock at night and I promise it was waaay darker than the picture lets on. I'm going to have to drive further out to the middle of nowhere next time :)

In like your pictures. You make me want to explore florida as well and take picture. I haven't played with exposure in such a long time. I smell an adventure this weekend!
