Category: Photo A Day


Focal Length:21mm
Shutter:30 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 40D

Ok, you all might as well know, the real title of this picture is procrastination! 🙂 I took this about 10 minutes ago which is about as late as I can push things since my self-imposed bed time is 10:00! Their are benefits to procrastinating though, for example, you all wouldn’t get to see any late night photography if I didn’t, not only that, some of the most creative shots come from a tight deadline with limited subjects to photograph. Actually, scratch that, I didn’t really procrastinate, I was merely waiting for the right lighting… 🙂

For those of you who would like to know, I took this with the kit 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS lens at 30 seconds(not 1 like it says on the side). I used auto focus with the pop-up lens since it was too dark for live view or the viewfinder and this seemed to work decently well but I think that the stars are a little bit out of focus. This was my first attempt at photographing the stars and I now realize that it is not as easy as it looks!

God Bless,

  1. Neat shot!

    Not two minutes ago, I had walked outside and was thinking about how gorgeous the stars looked on this clear night. I see they looked just as nice where you are!

  2. Love this one! The stars look so close. I can see Orion’s belt and sword.

  3. Oh my! I was just looking through your posts (I’ll admit, I’m very behind in doing so) and my goodness, I absolutely love this one! Gorgeous.
    Great shot! The stars are in my top favorite things God created…most definitely.


  4. Thank you Lauren, they were indeed beautiful!

    tsk, tsk, Emily, and here I thought you actually cared about my photography! 😉 I intend to try some more night photography the next good opportunity that presents itself!

    Thank you all!
