The image below was taken at about 2 am in the morning. My wife and I were on the way home from an evening of shooting some waterfalls when I had the bright idea to try and get some shots of the night time sky. (hey, we were already out!). We stopped at a few different places and I managed to get a few photographs of the stars and the Milky Way. Even the Northern Lights made a short but sweet appearance. We have passed this barn countless times in our travels and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a shot of it at night.
I set up my camera, adjusted my settings and started shooting. Not so easy in the dark. In the distance behind me, I noticed a car was approaching. I pressed the shutter release button a few seconds before the car passed so that with a 20 second exposure, the car lights would light-paint the foreground. The result is below.
