Trails Over the Highlands
The weather on this trip encouraged me to be up half of every night -- the days were constantly cloudy and rainy, and then the skies would clear late in the evening. After taking a lot of images with dreary skies, the stars were too beautiful to resist, so once again I forced myself out of my sleeping bag in the middle of the night and got to work.
This seven-second exposure was taken high in the Cabot highlands, over 2000 feet up, west of Joes Pond and north of the Groton State Forest. You can see that even at 2:00 am, thick fog had already settled in the valleys. The image was actually of a rural back yard; you can see a blue picnic table under the small shrub, and some pumpkins in the background right of the maple tree.
