Spotlit Local Pines on a Crispy Cold Night

Fri 01.20.05 – I took a walk down to the local shops around 8pm to get water, diet coke, and a bottle of wine to take to an loempia/spring roll making party, when I looked up at my favorite stand of scots pine trees all lit up and could see the stars behind them.
Update: To answer El’s question in the comments, the trees are lit by spotlights, which seems to be popular in this neighborhood of Dublin to light up one’s big trees at night. My flash would not have gotten such great detail at such a distance as the tree canopy. I did have to switch the camera into night mode and leaned against a fence to stay as still as possible.

  1. Wow, that’s a great photo! Did you use the flash on your 6680 or is it normal lighting from the ground?
    You know, I was considering buying myself that little flash to attach it to my 6630…but I didn’t do it…just didn’t know how good it would work.
