Camping – Fall 2013

Cindy and I went camping this past weekend (Sept 27 – 30) with friends on Long Schooner Lake in Plevna, Ontario (North Frontenac Township).  I was really looking forward to taking star photos on this trip because the township has been designated a “dark sky” location by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, one of only 17 such sites in the country. It is unique because the entire township is included, all 1,160 square kilometres, not just a small area.

All outdoor lights must be justified, and must follow certain rules. They must have a cover that prevents light from streaming upward, for example. This care to eliminate as much light pollution as possible allowed me to get shots where you can clearly see the Milky Way.

About Rob

I'm a professional Webmaster and Web Apps Developer. I do it because I can and the pay is decent; I don't like it much but it pays the bills. Like most people, my job isn't my passion, and I struggle every day trying to figure out a way to get paid well enough to do what I really want to do, so I can quit my regular job. For me, my passion lies in two areas. In order of preference, I'd rather be a novelist and/or a photographer. It's exceedingly difficult to be a novelist...or, at least, a successful one. So, that one will be much more difficult to achieve. But, I love writing, so, whether or not I'm successful, I'll probably keep writing regardless. I already have a side business as a photographer, but shooting weddings isn't exactly what I had in mind. But, it's gotta start somewhere, right?
