This is a 1 hour long exposure of a lone tree off River Road. Actually the combination of 120 thirty second exposures (which is how modern digital cameras need to do these images)
I went out last Sunday night at 1:00am. Drove to Eugene from Springfield and hiked 1/4 mile out into a field to the tree in wet thigh high grass (getting soaked). I was carrying all my camera gear, a tripod, flashlight, lawn chair, headphone radio, a book and snacks. I set the camera up on the tripod, composed the shot and started a series of continuous exposures. I then set up my lawn chair, put on my radio, pulled out a book and started reading for the next hour......alone, out in the middle of a field, at 1:30 AM in the morning.
By 2:30 AM. the images were done. I packed everything up, hiked back out of the field and drove back home by 3:30 AM. I tried to get some sleep, but had to get up again at 6:00 AM for work.
All that trouble and you really never know if the images is even going to turn out! Luckily I think this one did.
