The stars over rural Alabama are pretty amazing when there’s no moon in the sky! I was out there doing some fishing this past weekend, and brought along the camera to try out some night shots. These cypress trees line the pathway to a small dock, on a lake that used to be used for catfish farming before being converted to a bass pond (there are some big fish in these ponds!). Learning to take better night shots is something that’s been on my list of things to do once I upgraded to the full-frame camera. I’m very, very impressed with the low light performance of the new camera! Unfortunately my lens only stops down to f/4.0, so I’m more or less limited to ISO3200 or above to get an exposure that doesn’t result in noticeable star trails. This equipment upgrading is just a never ending process – I guess now I’ll just have to find a much faster lens for night photography 🙂 I heard the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 is a good affordable lens for night shots – does anyone have experience with this, or any other good night photography lens? I appreciate your comments if you do!

One more shot from rural Alabama, of the moon setting over a fog-covered lake near Tuscaloosa. The warm day and cold night created a nice layer of fog over the water, which picked up the warm moonset colors quite nicely! My original plan was to just take a few night pictures of the tree reflections, but I realized the moonset wasn’t too late (maybe 11 PM or so) and ended up staying out much longer than anticipated. Thankfully the warm colors hid the small amount of lens flare present from the moon.
