I’m tempting fate.
For many years running, I’ve had it in my mind to make one image that “made a damn” per day for a calendar year.
Maybe not for you, but but for me.
I was three for three. I might post the others later, but the thing is that they mattered to me.
Today, as the light faded, I was feeling sunk as I got home, as both cameras had remained sequestered all day. It was late, and I was tired, and I still had work to do.
But, just across the street, a vista opened up and needed to be explored.
I had to walk across the street and a few doors west to capture this, but it’s by no means a far cry from what I’d see from my living room on a lucky night.
This is an 8 second exposure at f/8, ISO 200 with the Sigma 105mm macro. Other than a less than 1 degree straightening and some highlight recovery, this is what the sensor saw without manipulation.
Feel free to click on the image to take in the details.
