One Photo A Day | Day 339 | Tree, Wind, Night Sky
One photo a day challenge: Day 339.
Went outside for some more night time photography. Unfortunately the sky was completely overcast again tonight.
Tonight I moved around and photographed from a few different angles and different scenes.
At one point the wind really picked up.
That created this exposure which is my favorite of todays batch.
I wanted to feature this large oak tree in our yard in this photo. Then have the night sky serve as the background.
This was a 30 second exposure.
The wind started whipping. The tree branches were waving all over in the wind.
You can see all the branches extending out in a circle from the tree trunk are increasingly blurry as the branch narrows out towards it’s end.
The branches are blurs of motion due to waving in the wind during a 30 second long exposure to create this image.
Then to make the image a little more interested I used a Lightroom preset in post processing that brightened up the night sky and gave it some color. The preset also created a vignette around the edges of the image.
