In January I had some fun doing some long exposure rear curtain sync flash photography using sparklers. Although I appear in the first photo, both pictures were shot using a tripod and timed exposure, allowing me to appear in the image.
Merry Christmas to all our friends and family back home in Canada. Here are a few photos of the lights at Bellingrath Gardens about 45 minutes north east of us. They had a wonderful display.
These are all images with long exposures (over ten minutes). I used these long exposures to give a ghostly feel to the birds and surreal feel to the water. They are taken at Crescent Beach, British Columbia and Point Roberts, Washington.
