Images of Canberra – Lake George by night

By johnboy - 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!

i think i need a better camera
more to the point.. i need to start using mine a bit, and work out how to do similar with it

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.

mad crazy. my camera won’t do mor than 15 second shutter 🙁

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

damn that’s good. I’ll never be able to take shots like that. Well done.

Neat – got a hi-res version?

Danman 1:32 pm 03 Jan 07

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.

Thumper 11:54 am 03 Jan 07

Nah,

I just worked with them a long time ago as Infantry.

I certainly couldn’t drive one!

Mr Evil 11:49 am 03 Jan 07

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 11:48 am 03 Jan 07

how’d you manage that ? Im guessing long exposure, on a tripod… ?

Danman 11:30 am 03 Jan 07

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.

Pandy 11:06 am 03 Jan 07

It needs a tank.

Ralph 10:55 am 03 Jan 07

Cool!

Smackbang 10:39 am 03 Jan 07

Thumper 10:24 am 03 Jan 07
