A Night in Trillium Lake

Written by CooKies™ on. Posted in Photography

13th of July, Friday. After last week’s experience on shooting stars, tonight I decided to go somewhere far away from city: Trillium Lake. 🙂 It’s almost a 2hour drive from my house, but since the weather is so nice, I should be able to get some good shots there.

七月十三日,星期五。自從上次在家附近拍過星空以後,我就決定要到這延齡湖試一試了。這地方離城市蠻遠的,今晚的天氣不錯,應該可以有不錯的收穫吧。

Trillium Lake @ around 10pmWhen I reached there, it’s around 9.30pm. The sun just set off not long ago, so the surroundings are still quite bright. I walked around for awhile to find a good spot, and then setup my stuff. While I was setting up my stuff, there was one guy approaches me and asking am I going to stay there for stars shooting. I was so surprised to meet someone who also planned to do that as well. His name is Don, he is really a pro, just visited his website, a lot of great photos there. In fact, when we were shooting the stars, around 12am, came another guy from Salem, he was planning to shoot star trails. What a happening night here at Trillium Lake, I met two guys from different places, all came here for Astrophotography. I think I’d been lucky to be able to learn some tips from these pros. 🙂

從我家到那裡大概是兩個小時的車程,到那裡時已經是晚上九時三十分。太陽也才剛剛下山不久,周圍都還很亮。我在四周走了一趟,找了一個地方,安頓好東西,將要開始嘗試拍攝的時候,就有一個美國人靠了過來,問我是否會留在那裡拍星空。我還真的蠻驚訝,竟然讓我在這裡遇到了同樣也是要拍星空的人。而且,過後在十二點左右,又來了多一個人,也是拍星空的。真的是太巧了,又或許現在是夏天,也是星空特別清澈的時候吧,所以特別多人來拍攝。剛剛我遇到的那個年輕爸爸,他還真的是個高手,剛剛看了他給我的網頁,他拍攝的照片還真的蠻驚人的。我也算蠻幸運的,可以請教他們,從他們身上學到一些拍攝的技巧。 🙂

Anyway, the skies up there was really crazy. With the elevation of 3600 feet at Trillium Lake, you can see a lot of stars. Gazing at the stars will only make you feel how small you are in this world, and yet God created all these for us. It’s really amazing. Too bad I don’t have my PC with me right now, I can’t process most of the photos, especially for timelapse. Here are some sneak previews though: 🙂

無論如何,今天晚上的星空實在讓人嘆為觀止。那裡是離地平線高一千多公尺的地方,所以可以看到蠻多的星星。看著那無數的繁星,真的會讓你覺得自己很渺小,也驚嘆於上帝的創造,真的很奇妙。由於我的電腦拿去修理了,所以並不能夠處理我所拍的相片,就先放上一些沒經處理的吧。 🙂

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!" :)
