Birds in flight are harder to capture. The smaller the bird the faster they fly. This Cormorant is a big guy and still I had a hard time tracking him.
Last night I attended a workshop on taking photos in the Night Sky. We traveled to Limon, a small town about 90 miles east of Denver. We were there to find a dark sky and that we did. This image consists of 12 images stacked on top of one another to create “star trails.” It turns out striking when done, but in creating the image the 12 images were not all that interesting. I set up my composition by putting Polaris, the North Star in the center of the image. I knew by doing this the trails would form as the rotation of the earth created movement.It was a fun evening playing with my camera in the dark!
