By 3 January 2007 18

Danman has been inspired by all the googlers coming here looking for Lake George and has sent in a picture he took of the road around the lake at night.

Spoooky!

Tanks are Thumpers dept – however if there should ever be an occasion whereby there is a tank at Lake George on a night that has no moon – Ill be there with bells on.

Danman, that is excellent!

There’s a whole new side of the ACT region that you’ve introduced us all to. Keep up the good work.

You should have an exhibition.

Andy – a no moon night – not even a whisper of a breeze – about 3 minutes on a tripod with the shutter open – wide open arpeture.

tech spec Nikon D70 – ~180 seconds – f3.5 18-80mm zoom set on 18mm – long exposure noise reduction on.

Mr Evil – Everyone thinks I should have an exibition – but its very expensive – I would have to hire space – then print (to at least A3 spec) my photos then mount them – then promote it (JB, anyone? lol), then set up pack down etc then host it – not to mention buying copious amounts of cheap cheese wine and crackers to quaff.

I may make money back on sales – but its the liquid assets I lack in order to set it all up…

people say there are odd things out at Lake George – I am it.

Excellent. I guess the glow on the horizon could be from Canberra lights? I’m still looking for the ghost, however.

Andy – same with Mrs Danmans camera – 15 seconds max – but is fine for city ambiance(sp?) at night.
Has – Canberra Northern suburbs ambient light pollution.

To stand there at night you can not see anything but the starts – but keeping one frame open for this long seems to amplify available light 100 fold – and with stunning effects. If its a moonlit night – the sky actually comes out blue as day but with stars in it.
