This is what ISO 1600 used to look like on my old 40D Alas, this is not camera noise but rain, and lots of it. I usually head up to the Sacramento NWR to shoot birds on the holiday, but I-5 and the town of Maxwell are under water and all the areas are closed due to flooding as well, so I stuck around home and looked for something to shoot. I'm not crazy though, this was shot out the passenger window of my truck from the drivers seat, allowing me and the camera to stay nice and dry.

You folks can't win out there. Drought to deluge in a few months. Good luck with all that. Stay safe, Ed.

Great image, Bill. I'm impressed that you got that much brightness in one exposure. It must have been a really dark night, except for the stars.

Amazing. I hope to replicate something like this when the milky way is more visible in the summer.

I'd be lying if I said that was straight out of the camera Definitely some work done in PS to clean things up and make them pop but nothing too crazy. I've tried to get similar shots down here in Southern Ontario, but there's just too much light pollution even with the correct moon phase.

Here's a shot taken just south of Parry Sound. You can see all the light pollution in it.

Thanks! June-Sept is the best time. Gotta watch the moon phase as well, also the light pollution maps. Taking the pic is the easy part It's lining everything else up that's time consuming.

Since its been raining all week, it seemed like a good time to pull the ham bone from Christmas out of the freezer and make some soup.

Ed, I love your artsy hill-tree-cloud B&W landscape. Well done.

Bill, I envy you the snowy. Love the sunset at White Otter Lake. Great colors and composition.
