As a naturally introverted person and deep admirer of God’s creation photographically I am always drawn back to natural landscapes and the contrast of the built environment on those landscapes.

    Beautiful Daniel… How did you stop the moon from blurring at 45 secs?

  • I had the camera held on an inexpensive tripod set very low to the ground. Unfortunately I lost my cable release in the field the day before so I had to manually depress the shutter button in bulb setting. Not ideal but as you can see the moon and the stars maintained clarity. It was tricker to capture the clouds – especially around the edge of the wide angle lens due to thier movement.
