Autumn by Moonlight
If the previous image was a cliche, this is the exact opposite: a type of fall foliage picture you've likely never seen before. Does something seem not quite right in this picture? That's because it was actually taken at night. :)
On a clear (and cold) late evening in October I set up my camera in near total darkness on the shore of the Searsburg Reservoir, and waited for the nearly-full moon to rise. This image was a time exposure of several minutes, which provided enough time for the moonlight to illuminate the trees and shoreline. The stars in the sky created star trails due to the rotation of the earth during the long exposure.
This fall season of 2003 was when I first discovered moonlight photography, and I've been hooked ever since.
