Reels and rain.

Here's a couple of shots from my little brother's photo session by the light of the full moon last night. Believe it or not this photo was taken at 10.30 pm when it was dark. With a very expensive camera set on long exposure you could swear it was taken in the daylight. The only way I can tell it was taken at night is the stars in the sky!

Old house by the monnlight, shorter exposure time.
Storm front approaching.

The approaching electrical storm.
At midnight it started to pour with rain and we got 28mls in an hour.

New Year, new blog header.
Some of my old cotton reel collection.
