Fall Starry Night - Shenandoah ParkOctober 2014 in Shenandoah Park Area
Claire and I recently spent a night at the very nice Glen Gordon Manor near the Shenandoah Park and had a marvelous meal. But when I eat a large meal late at night, my digestive system is not ready for bed. Finally at 2A, I looked outside and saw a crystal clear night sky, so I grabbed the camera and went into the nearby field with this spreading tree and Orion situated above in the Eastern sky. After a half an hour and a dozen exposures I decided I had a good image and I was ready for sleep. Olympus OM-D E-M5, m.zuiko12-40mm@12mm, ISO2000, 15 sec., f2.8. Manually focused to infinity (a feature of the lens) and the tree "light painted" with a head lamp.
