A Cold Night’s Moon

Chris Lane / photography / / 0 Comments

A full moon tonight and some pretty dramatic cloud coverage. Shortly after I took this shot the clouds pretty well covered the moon entirely. This is shot at ISO 1250, f/5.6, 1.3 seconds. Very little post processing, just dodged the lower third a little to show the treeline.
Not too cold out, only 7° above zero, Fahrenheit. Not bad for December 28th.

A look back at winter nights

Chris Lane / photography / / 1 Comment

A Friday photo post to look back at the winter. These photos were taken in January of 2009 and if I remember correctly, it was incredibly clear and around -30°F which is rather interesting to think of considering it is over 80°F right now. I personally like somewhere in between, but in Northwest Minnesota, we tend to get the extremes.

I love the look of the light at night time. Everything is under light essentially and of course its (almost) all artificial. It is just so different from the day time everything looks drastically different. I really should do more photos like this, but I think they tend to work better in the winter because the snow on the trees helps soak up the little light that is there.
These photos are available as prints if you would like. Just use the handy paypal add to cart buttons below!

Fire nightscape

Chris Lane / photography / / 2 Comments

This week I have a very wide panorama photo of a nightscape with a line of fire. This is an old one that I just now got around to putting together. I was burning some grass on my property a couple years ago and of course I thought I should take a photograph of it. This panorama is made up of 12 photos that I had to splice together manually in Photoshop, as the photoshop function wasn’t working for whatever reason. This doesn’t show up that great in blog size, so click on the name below to get it in a free wallpaper format of 2500 pixels wide.
