The Big Dipper — Photo 6 — Project 365

Published Reading Time ~1 min Filed Under Project 365

I went for a walk tonight and ended with a beautiful picture of the Big Dipper. I’ve always loved to look at the stars…

I tried different settings, but ended up settling on my first snapshot. I don’t think the picture is in focus (Auto-focus didn’t work in because there was so little light), but I like the effect of the out-of-focus stars - it makes them central to the photo. Taking photos at night is hard too because the camera has a tendency to turn the sky maroon if the exposure goes too long.
