Long Exposure

Being motivated by the decent results, my whetted appetite gets me experimenting shooting Cerok Tokun with long exposures, again and again. Though without a tripod, trees help the most as they are everywhere, at any time.


And it looks like Tinker Bell has slipped inside my camera and sprinkles the shutter with pixie dust. Cerok Tokun is no more dull and dim, just because of me, but is now full of gorgeous tones and indefinite possibilities.

Trees are the same old trees, but are now not the same at the same time. 


I am so crazy in love with it.

Hello Rainfield! Lovely captures, the trees and lighting are beautiful. Very nice of Tinker Bell to slip inside your camera. Have a happy weekend!

Wonderful shots, Mr. Rainfield! You forgot to mention the beautiful curves and movement of Tinker Bell.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family!

The curve of the tree creates a delicious frame to explore the beauty beyond your 'tripod.'

Trees usually hold still, but you have charmed them into dancing.

You are absolutely right Rainfield -- trees are different every time you look at them. I know the same thing is true about the sky! And I love that you share your special views with us. You live in an amazing part of this wonderful world.

Your posts show how much -- and why -- you love Cerok Tokun. These photos are excellent. I wish I could take such good long exposure shots without a tripod.

Trudno nie kochać wspaniałych drzew. Pierwsze zdjecie, mimo przypadku z aparatem, wyszło bardzo ciekawe. *** Wesołych Świąt. Pozdrawiam.
It's hard not to love magnificent trees. The first photo, even though the case with the camera, came out very interesting. *** Merry Christmas. Yours.

I wish I were as good as you are with a camera. I can barely point and shoot. Here you are experimenting with all sorts of settings and getting such beautiful results.
