That's beautiful n1w. Very elegant lines and a nice hint of the blue night against the black canyon. Very nice.

Wow! That's wonderful! I've been waiting for something new and this is certainly a beautiful addition! You seem to be safely out of the action here, up above on the hillside?

not1word on April 27, 2010

Thank you very much, Spence. That bit of sky was what I was really wanting to have there, and I was happy it worked out like it did.

Hi, Nawitka. Thank you! I was on a little over pass that the traffic runs under, so safely out of the way, and with a good vantage point. I had the camera on the bulb setting, but with the D60, you have to hold the shutter release down the whole time, so for this two and a half minute shot, I was hoping that I wasn't jiggling the camera too much.

Wow! This is incredible, Not1word!

This is a beauty, not1word! When I have to press the shutter down for a long time there's always a fly buzzing around my head.

Impressive stuff, not1word, especially the technique!

You could Sellotape a little stone down to the shutter release while the lens cap is still on, taking the cap off when you're ready and the camera is steady. When the exposure is finished, flick the switch to turn off the camera. It'll save the last picture. :)

Thank you, Ospr3y. That's most kind of you!

Norrel, that was my worry while I was holding the shutter down. Fortunately, it's too early in the season for too many flies. Thanks for the visit and nice comment.

Howdy, whoelius. I appreciate very much the very nice comment and the tip, too. I wasn't sure whether if I turned the camera off with the shutter open would cause the camera to lose the shot being exposed. Now that I have your handy idea, I'll have to give it another try.
