Some time age, Markus, Ben and I went out to take pictures of the stars. It didn’t go so well because the moon was ridiculously bright. In fact, many of the images resembled broad daylight. (Sometimes pictures do tell a thousand lies!)
The assignment was postponed when the teacher realized they’d forgotten to check their star charts. Turns out astrophotography is best done without a full celestial sphere!
As the moon shrunk, Ben was able to out to take pictures on a nightly basis. I followed him out to the cow pond for one last photo session of the stars.
After the moon set on the horizon, the pictures were almost magical.
It was as if there were hundreds of tiny little fairies fluttering about looking down at the world below. We took as many pictures as we could before I had to return to my dorm.
Instead of going to bed, I got carried away and played around with the colors. For some weird reason, I got attached to the lomo photography color scheme.
Oh well, I still got the originals in case I change my mind.
