320/366--30 Seconds Till The End of The World

I was out the other night on a light painting drive when i spotted this tunnel. I was stoked that i finally found a tunnel as tho is a hand rain blocking one side and as well the light inside the tunnel is always on. I was trying to get it to shut off as ive heard if you shine a bright light at an outside night light it will shut off if you can overpower it with say a huge flashlight. Well that didnt work it just shut of for 5 seconds then turned back on. I was so hoping to find a complete dark tunnel but thats how it goes, ya gota work with what you got. So as i tried a few ideas inside testing i came around back of the tunnel and could see how the clouds were rolling by with this awesome light pollution from the city with makes the clouds glow orange. That doesn't happen everyday so i grabbed my tripod and set up a new shot, i tested the light to add some blue to the tunnel then i thought hey i could go up to the top and try to stand there and have these clouds silhouette me as they light up the background and id be almost in shadow with just an outline. So thats what i did and when i looked at the back of my camera to see what i had got and this is what i saw. Its hard to stay still for 30 seconds and it was windy but it came out ok

30 Seconds till the end of the world is what i thought. This was Day 320 in the books. Night adventures in North Bay


Specs Sb-800 1/2 inside front of tunnel (zoomed 24) gelled blue and fired via nikon cls on self timer as i ran up the top and stood there for the 30 second exposure
