Default My second trip to B.C.

A working holiday of sorts....I ended up going back to Sorrento, B.C. timing it just right as the moon was where I wanted it to take in some night shots. The first stop heading west placed me at Lake Louise, Alberta for a quick shot. The purple in the photo is a result of stacking 15 stops of Cokin ND filters together giving me a nice long exposure.

Once in Sorrento, I took advantage of the moon light back at the old church and did some light painting inside. The morning I needed to drive back to Alberta, a thick fog moved in giving me another nice set of photos of the old church.

Hope you all enjoy the series!

Hey Kevin! I won't bore you with the usual superlative tirade I usually embark on when you post new pictures. Instead, I have to ask you how you made the barn in your 4th pic look like it was on fire? You never cease to amaze... And the fall colors in #2 are gorgeous!

Hey Robert, the inside of the church was lit with a small led flashlight. The inside of the church is wrapped with fir wood on the ceilings, walls and floor which explains the red fire tones of the light. Thanks for stopping by......stay tuned for a few more!

Here's a few more for you all! The church is lit by an approaching train, clouds lit by the moon.

If each of these were hung on a different wall in a room, I would corkscrew myself into the floor trying to pick a favorite! They are all beautiful.

This photo is one of my favourites. The last one like it was taken with no moon and I wanted one with the moon light which, if there's clouds, would add drama and mood to the subject.

This is a composite of 4 images "stacked" which gives the light from the train a fan look coming out of both sides of the window. With the ISO's set high to 1250, it was able to capture the light as it spiked through and moved across my frame. I'm looking forward to going out again in about another week, timing it so I have a full moon high in the sky at night for around 10 or 11 pm. This shot is taken at around 3am with just under a half moon.

Kevin

Robert, sorry if your running out of wall space and up to your neck in floor boards!!

You, Kevin puts us all other to shame.

this last one is a favorite for me as well. the lights radiating out gives it a very pleasing ethereal feel to it.

loved the whole set as usual though. really liked #2, then the foggy church are a couple more favorites in this thread.
