NightWatch

Uploaded by: trigirl

Jupiter, FL (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I wanted to get to the beach way before sunrise to get some night shots. This shows the night stars including Orion's Belt, the lifeguard tower standing watch, a glow behind it of the lighthouse beam. The beam passed through 3 times during this 30 second exposure.

Thank you very much for finding this little jewel in my gallery! I love night star shots and would like to do more of them. However, the mosquitoes here usually chase me away!

Photography is certainly subjective and I'm very conservative about giving a 10 rating. However, this particular pic gets a 10 since it is unusual and creative plus it required patience.

Thanks for writing Duane, Clifford, and Dave! I know nothing about star color so I can't answer your question Dave. May be the difference in humidity or even just the white balance or lens used.

Great shot, i have noticed something on your 30 sec exposure, the nebulas below Orions belt are white. I a couple years ago took a 30 sec Orion shot on my film SLR & one of the nebulas had a red hue to it (it isn't on WU). Wonder why yours are white & one of mine was redish? I do like this shot.

Terrific shot. Thanks for the background info too. Sometimes the really fun part is HOW you did it, not that you did! It's a beautiful shot. Doug in Atlanta

Hey!!!Be careful!!! Your artist creative side is peaking through LOL. Great shot. Like the solitude of the nite sky. Hope to see more. See the water in the pic reflecting some of the light, maybe if you do it again, frame in some of the shore to pick up the water glow. Like the mystery feeling of your shot.
