Desert dawn


This morning was a full moon so I decided to go desert hiking at 4:00am and to try my luck at long term exposure digital photography.  Well, long term as in my Canon G3 will do up to a 15 second exposure.

I drove up to New River and hiked out far enough to get pictures with a variety of backdrops.  It's still pretty warm even at night so clothes weren't needed.

The only disappointing part was that I didn't try any night photography at home first or I would have realized that the auto-focus doesn't work well when it's dark.  Almost all of the complete night pictures were blurred

Here's some of the better pictures that came out.
