Embrace the Night
These are dark times up in the northern latitudes, still a solid two months from the nearest equinox. So when my friend Doug Loneman invited me to do a nighttime photo walk with him, I decided that was a nice way of making the best of the winter darkness. Plus, the historic Baxter Hotel in downtown Bozeman just lit up its sign for the first time in 40 years, so I needed to see that.
Photographing at night was a new exercise in seeing. Light is so different than during the day. Still very cool, though.
Then we decided to head out into the country a little. An airplane even had the good manners to fly through my frame during a 4-minute exposure.
Have noticed it’s no longer dark when I leave work lately…I’m done celebrating the dark — but I dig your images!
Thanks, Megan and Kirk!
How enlightening (sorry) to embrace a new perspective. Congratulations. Jane
