Twilight Photography-

ITS been very cold and if not cold and windy, then rain--other areas are having record snow fall! This winter has provided some challenges. Getting out with the camera when your hands are freezing is not very pleasant!! I think the desert rats have the right idea right about now!! But there was that one night I decided to brave the cold and took a drive over by the Power Substation and snapped these shots! Im usually photo-shopping power lines, telephone poles, and other bits of urbanization, out of my photos....but this time I went in search of it!! Its very heavily forested where I live so just finding an opening in the canopy is a challenge (cant see the forest for the trees sort of). The western sun was lighting my way to the substation--

Follow the power lines:


                                         
                                          

 These towers looked pretty snazzy against that twilight blue sky-- 




 Over by the airport there is a large tract of open area..and a good sunset can be seen from here..

 



 Not far away is my target the substation---the power grid-- 

                                        



 The air was cooling off the bit of warmth of the day and there was ice still on the trees so the fog rolled


 in on my way back home---



 
 I want to learn how to do some star trails...maybe when it gets warmer!



Good Night,,,
