Tuesday and Wednesday were a lot like Monday, except I didn’t set my alarm for 2:30 AM either day.
On my way, I happened upon a lovely field of sunflowers, so I stopped for a few photos. None of them turned out, because I neglected to turn on the autofocus on my lens. But that’s OK, because I went back today (Friday) to scout the spot for a possible round of star trails later tonight, and I got this photo:
And then, after visiting with some friends in Winnipeg (thanks for the iced tea, Mike & Michelle!), I stopped in at the abandoned house near Erickson, and got about a half-hour’s worth of star trails.
It was about 2:30 AM when I got back to the cabin (hmm, I seem to have an affinity for that time…), so I started the star-trail GIMP plugin whose eventual output you see above, then went to bed.
