from sunset to sunrise…

That was this month’s assignment for my foto club. It was harder than I thought it would be…mostly the “getting out” after dark part. I no longer live in an urban area and taking pictures after dark means you need something with light (at least a little bit of light) ….which there isn’t much of out here.

I did quite a bit of reading before the ‘supermoon’ and was thrilled that I had some acceptable shots. Here is my first attempt as it was rising before the sun set: IMG_1547.JPG I was getting more comfortable and produced a few closer shots:

IMG_1552.JPG I was driving home late one evening and stopped on our Main Street. I call this one, “working late”:

IMG_1555.JPG I love this view of the street in my rear view mirror:

IMG_1554.JPG I suppose this should have been first…I call it “ghost”. I was getting the feel of my manual settings. I like how my hubby, coming into the room, looks transparent:

IMG_1556.JPG I forgot to check my camera battery when heading out for the fireworks on Canada Day…lesson learned 😉 These were taken with my iPhone 4s, not great but interesting:





Thank you for visiting.

Until next time…Connie 😃


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
