Last weekend DR got home late from work, go figure...it's harvest. And he walked in and told me I should come take pictures of the moon. It was beautiful! Big and bright with lots of details! But try as I might I couldn't take a picture without it looking like a big white ball.

As I was in the dark playing with my camera, I realized I could try making light trails!! Fun!!
I set up my tripod and set the exposure to 4 seconds and waited...and waited....and waited...for a car to drive by. We live on the main street of town and it was Saturday night at 9 pm and I could have pitched a tent in the street and slept soundly. Small towns.
DR even offered to get in the truck and drive back and forth on the street for me...sweet guy!
But I was lucky enough to get 3 or 4 cars drive by after while.

They were fun to do! They aren't great but a good learning experience nonetheless.
This is south side of town. See that fence? That is the edge of town. The boys and I were curious the other day and drove the borders of our tiny town and we learned it is exactly a mile square. I can stand in the middle of town, turn in a circle, and see the four edges. Small towns.
I liked how all the lights looked like there were rays shooting from them.
I liked this photo even more when I pushed the boundaries of editing.
Sometimes I kind of like the wild abstract look of things.
