The family and I recently went on vacation to a ranch in West Texas far, far from civilization and I decided to play around with the camera at night. After seeing the photos, it really reminded me of those nights under the stars, food cooking, camp set, canoe next to us, clothes trying to dry. Then as the fire and the laughter starts to die down and the effects of the days paddle begin to creep in, everything gets quiet and you sit back in your chair and look up, and realize "wow" look how many stars there are out there. No way to see this from in town. I love those trips, even though most are just over-nighters, the memories stay as some of the best times of my life. My son is old enough now to share this with me. It's just a matter of having time.
Anyway, thought you might like these. They were taken between 11pm and midnight. The moon was coming up so it lit things up pretty cool. It's amazing how much light the camera absorbs to make it look like evening or morning rather than 12.
I realize the pics are not canoeing related exactly, but I was hoping some of y'all might have some trip photos in the evening or night that you would like to share. Sunsets,sunrises etc. I'm going to see if I can dig up a few from trips past.
If you look in the center you can see the milky way, it kinda looks like clouds.
And of course a quick shot of our camp.
Thanks for coming along.
