Christmastime in Leavenworth
There’s something more interesting to me than just the Christmas lights when I see this series of photos we took in Leavenworth on Tuesday night. Look at the sky.
The last two, something appears in the sky over the hotel. What is it?
The first image, I’m testing my exposure (and i have to say that I was extremely proud of myself because it looks pretty good). However I didn’t set the auto timer long enough and you can see my arm streaked in the lower right corner. And the flash didn’t go off either. Notice there is nothing visible in the sky.
In the second shot, I did manage to get into the frame but didn’t stand still the entire 5 seconds.
Third shot, we did really well, but a water drop is on the lens right on top of us. This is also the frame when the light streaks start to appear in the sky over the hotel.
Last frame, nailed it. (four tries, not too bad) – and the streaks are higher and smaller than in the third frame. Each frame was 5 seconds and in between were probably 20 or 30 seconds to check the photo and recompose. It was about 10:30pm, December 16, 2014
