Some of nature's most magnificent beauty awaits those who venture
off into the woods on a camping expedition, and today's picture by
photographer Brian Hampson shares just a bit of that magic with us -
albeit in a slightly different light. Here is his story behind the
"We took this photo while camping in the Coastal Mountains of
Here are the camera and settings used to capture this image:
Inside the tent I had two people "painting" the
inside of the tent
with their LED headlamps. I painted the ground
at the front of the
tent a bit to give it some grounding - rather
than have it floating
in the darkness. The 30 second exposure
allowed the moon to show
through the trees a bit and let the
late evening sky show some light
to complete the composition."

Very nice picture Brian. I do like the tent lit up the way that you
have it as well as the foreground. I also followed the link to your
blog and found some very nice stuff to look at and read there also.
