Mount Majura By Night

By Danman 3 March 2008 22

Went up Mt Majura on Friday night to do what I do best – Take low light photos.

I was heading up just on Dusk.

Sorry if I scared that jogger who ran down past me then back up and back down again.
Just becuase I was wearing a hoodie does not mean I am some roustabout, maybe I was cold.

Took me 40 minutes to the summit then 2.5 hours to stroll back down, whilst looking for photo opportunities on the way down.

Some significant events that night included inadvertantly scaring single white female jogger w/ dog twice, freaking out CASA employee on Mt Majura summit, and a possum scaring the crap out of me on one of the many 2.5 minute torches off waits for the photo to be exposed on the way down.

For the propeller heads I had a D70, set on 800 ISO (going back to do 200 ISO shots), 18mm focussed near infinity and most shots ran around the 156 second mark.

Anyway, some of the shots are below.

More can be found in my gallery by accessing it via my username below.

As usual critique is encouraged – on both sides of the fence

Also to finish off the set, I often go on walks at night in the bush to help find myself in this crazy world.
Little did I know I what I was in for.

Cheers mate, I dabble a bit with coloured gels over a brught torch (2.5 million candlepower) but play with LED’s a lot too…

I really like the first two shots there mate – it’s funny – was doing a similar thing the night before last – but drawing things in the air with a maglite with the focus head removed. Great results!
