O Holy Night

Oooooo, aaaaaaahhhh :-)

Type "L" to see the image on black (highly recommended).


I've been struggling all year to bring things up into a new level with my star photography. It's been difficult to do that because 1, I'm not quite sure who/what/where/when I want to go to this "new level" and 2, I've been trying to put attention and effort in so many other areas, I haven't been out relentlessly shooting and experimenting as I want to be.


But, I feel like this one is stepping out into that new area I'm trying to find. Still not sure what it is- but I feel like with this image, I'm closer than I was before.


That's exciting to me :-)

Once I become stagnant, I'm done. Experimentation is my fuel.


What do you think?


This was taken earlier in the month, an hour after leaving a "Star Party" up on Mt Hood. It was fun! Telescopes, binoculars- all kinds of stuff set up to share and learn from. Around midnight, we were ready to move on, so following Gary Randall, we all headed down here to Trillium Lake. This place is beautiful. And, Gary is the master of Trillium Lake/Mt Hood shots!
