Fun at Detroit Lakes


I am excited due to the fact that I finally took a decent night shot. I have been wanting to get one of these since my 35mm film SLR days.

I was privileged to go camping for a day or so at Detroit Lakes. I have to say the stars are just awesome with so little light pollution. I with the naked eye could see the Milky Way. Totally awesome. Made me miss growing up in the country.

I pulled out my camera, cable release and tripod. I spent about an hour shooting and got a couple good shots. (It takes a good formula to get shots at night and lots of patience) The shot you see here is an 8 min exposure at about f11. I am still working on perfecting this for how I shoot but am happy with the outcome.
