Dipper Digging Coal
Here is something a little different. This is the big dipper from the bottom of a little gully in a coal field.
As you can see, the stars are out of focus. That is because I focused on the ground just in front of the camera.
I sat the camera down on the ground and focused it. I pressed the shutter for a 30 second exposure, then shone a flashlight across the gull for a second or two.
I think the effect is kinda neat! I think it looks like the dipper has been digging in the dirt.
