The Shortening of Days

As winter encroaches around us, the sunlit hours dwindle. During this time of year I often find myself out working at night. Driving from one house to the next, trying to earn a living, I keep my eyes open for interesting photo opportunities. One thing that has peaked my curiosity is night photography. The picture for today was taken by leaving the camera shutter open for thirty seconds. The minimal light that was in the scene poured into the lens and slowly constructed the picture you see below. It’s amazing the detail that the camera saw but I could not. Getting pictures like this makes me feel better about the coming Winter.
