Do you love the stars? Are you fascinated with the night sky? I know I am.
I’ve been reading a lot about night photography lately. I’ve always loved the stars and the sky and the whole concept of outer space, so naturally, I want to capture images of it. I’ve played around a few times with my camera at night, and even made a somewhat pitiful attempt at photographing star trails.
So the other night, I set out with my camera, planning to take a whole bunch of pictures of the night sky with a nearly new moon. I thought I might stack them to see the star trails, or maybe time-lapse them so I could watch the stars trek across the sky. Well, as it turned out, Mother Nature disagreed with my plans. I looked outside and couldn’t see the sky at all. It was completely obscured with clouds. Ugh.
Well, I (hopefully) put the camera on my tripod and set the timer so that it would start taking pictures a couple hours later. Surely, the sky would clear up by then… And I went to bed. Well, you can watch the time-lapse video I made and see what happened for yourself. My husband noted that it looked like the opening of a horror movie, so I set it to some spooky music. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
Have you ever had grand photography plans spoiled by weather? Let me know about it. I’d love to hear your bad weather stories.
Love and Photo Fun,
