I woke up around 1 am, looked out my bedroom window to see the moon, shrouded by by popcorn-like clouds. I vascillated between getting up to capture the shot and staying in bed.

Getting up won. I fumbled around in the dark fetching pants and a sweater, along with my small lens (18-55) and tripod. Off I went, extending the tripod legs as I made my way outside to set up. Camera ready, I look up to find the clouds had dispersed… 🤷‍♀️

What the heck, I’m here now. So I took some long exposures of the night sky, playing with settings and thoroughly enjoying myself. There’s something magical and wonderful being up in the middle of the night, especially alone.

The geese on the river were quite vocal and, much to my surprise, vehicles on the road.
