Today’s Photo 12-31-11
This -- as far as people on the East Coast are concerned -- is the middle of nowhere. Upson County, Georgia. Still, I had to use a long lens to crop out most of the lights, and iPhoto to retouch 5 other lights out of the picture.
In the words of Teddy Roosevelt; “The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it.”
He may have been talking about the Grand Canyon but the words are nearly universal. Oh well. We have to live someplace and we need light. I just wish we could all be a little more sensitive about “marring” the Earth.

And just because someone is dying to know these things...
Nikon D80 with a 80-200mm F2.8 Nikon lens
Two Cokin Graduated Neutral Density filters (taking the sky down 4 stops in total.)
In addition, a happen accident. I was messing around photographing a building by the street light before dawn and accidentally left the “White Balance” on Tungsten. That made the valley fog slightly bluer.
