Deep Purple

    Newer Older

    Here's a shot that I made in the middle of the night of the penstemon that was in the last shot with Mount Hood and the Milky Way above them.

    I'm not sure how many other people photograph wildflowers in the pitch black night time. :) I lightly light painted the flowers with my led light.

    I'd be curious to hear your thoughts on this one. Thanks. :)

      Wow, this is rather amazing that you not only got all those stars, but you also got all those flowers. A really amazing photograph!

      You sure have a lot of photographic energy Gary... for a guy who never sleeps!!! I love how you managed to get so much details out of those flowers in the dim star-light... did you blend several images to get this... or did you do some (very subtle) light-painting?

      Pure magic, Gary. Amazing how you could capture that gorgeous night sky and also a beautiful field of flowers. Brilliantly captured.

      Beautiful color...nice job painting the flowers. They are bright enough to bring out a gorgeous hue but not too bright to overwhelm the picture. Nicely done!
