Default Silos and Calgary Glow

Had to take a trip a couple hours north of Calgary last night so coming back these silos along the highway caught my eye and had to stop to check them out. The long exposure created the movement in the clouds and the glow in the horizon is the reflection of the city of Calgary, one hour away. The light streak in the sky just above the right silo is an airplane heading to Calgary to land.

Sweet.

Light Painting?

I've often wondered about the whole light painting thing, is it now something that you just know how long to paint for to get the exposure?

Ya thats pretty good. I dont suppose you could post a shot that shows what your surroundings look like before the long exposure. I'd kinda like to know what you started with in respect to how much light there was in the sky, and the horizon. Also any idea what the red and white lines are to the left? Also since its possible to overexpose a night shot. Its possible to get enough shots to make a good HDR. Have you ever tried it? Forgive my memory if you have already posted a nighttime HDR.

Bynx, I shot it to expose correctly and can't show you a dark photo to represent what it was like. I'm guessing that if you walk outside tonight at 10:20pm, it should be just as dark where you are. The sun set at 8:57pm and by the time I took this shot the Milky Way was in full glory in a black sky. The red and white lines is the traffic on the highway going by during the 30 second shot. Thanks for swinging by guys!

I didnt mean for the shots here. Just the next time you are taking a similar shot. It would put into perspective what we would see and what you gave us to see. The thing is around here at that time its so bloody bright from glowing air pollution that the sky is never black. You are lucky to be near some dark area. Im hoping for a blackout soon. But with my luck it will happen when my batteries arent charged.
