Far from home

Far from home

Late post - trying to catch this stream up.

I had done some exploring one Sunday, and had found this place, along with a couple of others, as good potential spots for night photography. On Tuesday night, the conditions looked good to I give this one a try. I headed home after work to try and get a few hours of sleep before I drove North, but I was way too amped to get any shuteye at all. Finally at around 10, I packed the car and headed out.

I got up to my spot at around 12.30, and it looked a whole lot different than when I had seen it during the day. The stars were out, and shining brightly, and there was just a little pollution - quite a treat for Florida night skies. I set up my shot facing north and started shooting, then looked up to the right - and saw that the milky way was at an amazing spot to try and set up over the tree in my foreground too, so I decided to get those shots quickly before I settled into hours of star trails, threw my camera and tripod in my back seat, drove down the road, turned it around, and jumped out with my flashlight to re-check the area before I set up. Once I was sure that there were no snakes I was going to stand on, and nothing dangerous lurking in the bushes that I could see, I reached back in to turn off the car.

And then I heard the loud breathing/hissing/growling noise. 😮

I have NO idea what animal in Florida makes that noise, but it didn't sound happy with me being that close at all and my heart nearly stopped. I yelled at it loudly hoping to chase it away with the noise and false bravado, and it growled back at me both times. I jumped back in the car and tried to drive down the road, but my leg was shaking so badly I couldn't press down the gas pedal. 😂

Finally I chilled out, refused to drive away after having driven two and a half hours to get there, wangled my camera over the seat and out of my drivers window, set it on the ground, kept my butt firmly in my nice safe seat, and shot from out of my window. Once I was done with the milky way, I just picked it up and drove back down the road and did the same for the star trails. It felt a lot safer down that side away from the monster in the bushes.

I got home about 4.30am and grabbed a couple hours sleep before heading back into work. Rough day at the office, but the adventure was worth it. I'm still very new to this type of photography, but I'm loving the chase and can't wait to do more.
