A few weeks ago I found myself riding in the back of a government owned pickup truck leading a group on a sledge, safari style through the maritime jungles of Bulls Island. We were hunting dark skies and had arrived early to see the wildlife and capture sunset in the boneyard. The amount of debris in the water is shocking and a photographers paradise.

For this image I wanted to reduce the scene as much as possible and focus on a lone tree well out in the water.  Then I had to get the timing right on the water movement and make sure the shutter was open long enough to get a pleasing result.  I ended up with a 2 second shutter speed and got some great water movement.

After this we toured around the rest of the island and stayed late thoroughly enjoying the stars well into the night. :)

Happy Friday and have a great weekend everyone!!
