Last Light

“When you stare into the abyss the abyss stares back at you.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche


Six minutes of stillness and staring into the fog. And it stared back at me.

Very unusual for me to post a photo with the same theme twice in just a few weeks, but this has a different subject: me.

Consider this a tribute to the many Long exposure Self portraits from the likes of Nathan Wirth and Brian Day . These two photographers each have a different style of creating LE SP's but they are among the best in what they do. This is one of my first and probably one of the last I do in this genre. Check this photo from Kees Smans to see how this was set up: click here - there are in fact 2 Joels :)
