Night Image for the Current 24-Hour Period – Waterfall & the Big Dipper

Are you tired of waterfalls, yet? Hope not, because I’m gonna be posting a lot more of them over the next weeks and months.

Night photo of waterfall and Big Dipper

Light-painted waterfall and night sky. Nikon D700, Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8 lens, f/4, 30 seconds, ISO 1600.

For this shot, I used the same technique as for Thursday’s waterfall. A typical static-star exposure of f/4, 30 seconds, and ISO 1600 captured the sky, while light painting with an LED flashlight during the exposure illuminated the waterfall. I used my standard blue gel mounted in a GelGrip™. The clouds are illuminated by the moon, which has just risen.
