On a dark lonely night

On a dark lonely night

I wanted to try a long exposure star trail shot, so I hopped on my scooter and headed off into the country after dark. Like most places I couldn’t really escape light pollution. I settled on this scary, dark place with no artificial light in direct sight in a valley with a very rocky river. It was quite scary by myself there at night. I don’t think there was another soul within earshot.

I used my old Mamiyaflex TLR and a role of T-MAX 400 film I bought by accident. This photo was about 30 minutes.

Sitting in the cold, dark, with bats flying around and animals in the dark thinking of eating me was an interesting experience, but this is a photo technique I want to experiment with some more!
