Starry Starry Night

Written by CooKies™ on. Posted in Photography

6th of July, Friday. Feeling fresh even though it’s late night. In fact I was planning for a midnight stars shooting around Hillsboro. I never did this before. But just wanted to give it a try. This is what I got after standing for an hour in the midnight at some ‘unknown’ location around Old Cornelius Pass Road in Hillsboro. 🙂

七月十六日,星期五。今晚精神特別爽朗,為的就是要嘗試一下拍攝這裡的星空。我沒有試過拍攝星空,難得最近這裡天晴,就決定試一試了。去了附近的農場那裡逛逛,找到了一個很暗的地方,有很多的樹,天空也佈滿了星星,於是就開始了我一個小時的拍攝。這就是我一個小時所得到的成績。

I found that by stacking those sequence of photos together, the outcome is even better for stars without trail. 🙂

The outcome is surprisingly better than I thought. The night sky is actually too bright with lights coming from the rising moon, and also houses around that area. So, I still need a better place without so much ‘light pollution’ to shoot more stars. However, being alone in the midst of the farm, listen to the sounds of the night, and enjoying the night breeze… really cool. 😛

效果比我想像中的還不錯。因為我以為那天的天空太過亮了,很難會拍到,出乎意料也能夠拍到蠻多的星迹。其實,最特別的,就是能夠體驗一個人半夜三更在農場附近,無數的蟲鳴,冷冷的夜風,還有漫天星星的陪伴下學習拍攝。說真的,還蠻冷的,但也蠻開心的。:P

One day, CooKies received an assignment to make the best peanut butter in the world. Hence, he decided to runaway to this place: Hillsboro, OREGON in US, for an estimated of 365days to complete his assignment. There are a lot of tough nuts over there, but he believes that: "Tough nuts always make the best peanut butter!" :)
