    Default Road to nowhere.



    It was to great a night to be outnside last night but I didnt have enough time to take out the scope (DAM EMPLOYMENT!!) So I decided to take a short drive away from the city glow and just have a look at the sky with my DSLR. Due to the long exposure (57 secs) and ISO being up, it managed to cature some white stones on the road close to me of which I am not a fan of but fairly happy with the rest considering it was rushed to get between cars coming. (The brightest light to the left of centre was yet another one!!) Lost a little res on uploading as I uploaded it off my Ipad from work as I never thought of it while at home. lol.

    A book cover would insult this, superb image. Saganesque is an understatement. This image is exceptional, a gem. Composition, tone, I could go on and on. I only wish that I had taken it.
