Since I kind of learned how to take pictures in the dark after the Northern Lights adventure three nights ago, I headed outside with my Canon camera and long pants, a coat and hood zipped up, socks and shoes, leaving no skin exposed to the pesky mosquitoes, then decided to turn the auto focus off, change the ISO to 1600, and set the camera on a tripod to try to capture the stars. The trees appear as orange, amazing even though they are bright green during the day!
My garden, house and trees took on a spacey landscape look with a path leading one's eye up to the middle of the starry sky!
I repeated the same process, mosquito proofing and camera set up in the the evening. This is where we watched the Canada fireworks display. The teepee is the world's tallest teepee that had its debut at the Calgary Winter Olympics in 1988. This picture is spiritual in nature as I figured out the exposure.
The stars in the night sky are fireworks of white, orange, green and red!
O' Canada, Happy Birthday! What a positively delightful day filled with stars!
