Star Gazing - Strathmore, Alberta

This was a fun but challenging photo shoot. The challenge was how cold it was that night, coupled with recovering from elbow surgery. The lantern also had to be turned down to a faint little flame that would easily blow out. I had to turn it down in order to achieve a balanced exposure of the scene. I also had to hold the lantern extremely still in this position for 30 seconds without flinching. This is the end result. It may not be the best quality of photo, but it was the best I could achieve. The glow of Strathmore is the light in the background.
