Default Burmis Tree/ night shots

Went blazing out to this site a couple nights ago to see what was stirring in the area. The Burmis Tree is a popular spot to stop and photograph as it is on the side of the highway in the Crowsnest Pass, southern Alberta.

The first photo is looking west toward Turtle Mountain that slid onto a mining town in the early 1900's and the second shot is looking east. The glow in the horizon comes from the light polution from neighboring towns. Lighting on the tree itself is via external flash, off camera shot from extreme side angle. Camera trigared with wireless remote switch.

Left home at 9pm and arrived back at 4am. Did more driving than photos but I'm ok if I can get at least one good shot in.

Excellent shots. I applaud your efforts to go "beyond" to make these shots.

Beautiful, very spooky and eerie - I really like the effect.
