Fun with Glowsticks

Saturday (July 5, 2013) – What to do with leftover glowsticks from the 4th of July festivities. Experiment with extended exposure, of course!!! A couple of 13 year olds, a 10 year old, a 7 year old and I had some fun. I used a varying range of exposure lengths – from 2, 4, & 8 seconds all the way up to 15 & 30 seconds. I played around with the results a bit with post-processing as well. For some I used the invert colors function (white background) and others, I applied a tint other than the original glowstick color. However, most are the original colors. Here is what we came up with.

Trunk River

Thursday (June 20, 2013) – I followed the shore road and wound my way into the Trunk River area. It’s a tiny little area where River Herring apparently go to spawn, but none were in evidence that day, having finished doing their business between March and May. Many a bird could be heard in the trees and marsh grass that surrounds Trunk River and Oyster Pond, but they were elusive and few were seen. Even fewer were caught by my lens. There were some pretty little flowers that manage to survive the wind and waves that buffet the jetties. Below are a selection of my favorite shots from the area. Enjoy!
