Camping Really?…

So I went out tonight to attempt some more light painting photography, after putting on a few more layers versus the last time I hopped into the car and headed out of town to my favorite spot. It is not too far out of town to be a pain yet far enough to get away from most of the light pollution. Unfortunately as I came around the corner and down the hill I saw not one but 2 campfires going and a number of snow-mobiles bombing around.

Getting a little closer I see two trucks with campers on the back and some trailers for the sleds. It is currently minus 25 Celsius or minus 13 Fahrenheit WITHOUT the wind-chill. Hope those people have some good sleeping bags and heaters in those things because I don’t think those thin walls will do much on a night like this. Don’t get me wrong, I like going out and exploring in the winter time; but I want a nice warm house or hotel room waiting for me at the end of it.

So since my normal spot was occupied I thought I would head a little farther down the road and see if I could find myself another location to attempt my photos. The only thing to come out of that was a long drive to find a safe place to turn around and head home again. So I came home earlier than expected, made a quick stop at the DQ for a Blizzard and went back to my nice warm home.

Since I have no photos from tonight to share I dipped into the archives and present these few pictures as compensation for those reading this.
