In this week’s post, you’ll notice something a little different – I’m not in my neighbourhood. I’ve gone up to Balsam Lake with my best friend from grade school and my niece. It’s our ‘Aunts and Niece’ annual camping trip. Luckily for me, my friend likes to take photos and it wasn’t too hard to convince her to go out to do some astrophotography.
The Milky Way was looking particularly nice this evening. We had a bit of a glow from the nearby city of Orilla, but we did our best with what we had, and I have to say it worked out really well.
My niece had brought up her telescope so she could check out the stars as we played with our cameras. I convinced my niece to pose for a photo on the nearby dock with her telescope.
This is my favourite shot from the evening. Although we were here only the one night, we had a blast and were able to walk away with some great memories and a couple good photographs to boot.
