    Haha. :lol3

    I think it's pretty cool to be on a global forum and be able to identify something, and know exactly where it is.

    Thanks! Long exposure and night shots are a guilty pleasure. The setting up and time involved drives my girlfriend crazy.... until she gets sees the results.

    Here's some more...

    This one's in a field next to my house looking towards the road into town.

    this is the reason I went out there... I drove by this hay barn that had caught fire on my way home and ran back out there with the camera and tripod.

    In town here where you can see two railroad crossings...

    and this one's at a cabin some friends rented for new years...

    A ferris wheel in Galveston TX while traveling. Good thing I passed through at night!

    this one is crazy. I was screwing around trying to show a friend about long exposure. I took a flashlight and got in front of the camera and got a good surprise shot! I think it's about 30 sec exposure...

    :clap Fantastic shots! As someone who doesn't know much (anything) about photography, how do you take these? Long exposure?

    Thanks Shadowed_Stranger.

    You are correct. Usually about 30 seconds. Any longer and the stars become trails. They are already football shaped at 25-30 seconds depending on focal length. In the last one the clouds and the bushes are blurred because they were moving.
