Middle of the Night

It was middle of the night, under four hours before the sun would be showing its face. I was on the Icefields Parkway, taking pictures of landscapes all lit up by the moonlight, the night after the full moon had crossed the sky. For the attached image, I was standing in the middle of the road keeping a watch for any vehicle front and behind me. I was taking 20 second exposures, even though my eyes were seeing everything as if it was daylight, the sensor in the camera needed more time to capture the landscape and the stars. As I waited for the camera to take the shot, it hit me, I was surrounded by absolute quite. There was no breeze and no animals were heard or seen, just me and the well lit up night landscape underneath the stars.

Until next time,
