Twilight photography

A few years ago I spent a week with the great John Sexton. One of the many many things I learnt from the great master was not to pack up the camera once the sun's gone down. While we exposed 30 second to 5 minute shots we often stared up at the stars, it was that dark.

While Rachel took the boys off for a pre-dinner hot chocolate at a local cafe I wondered around the park with the camera bag and tripod. To be honest I wasn't thrilled with any of the shots but this one will hopefully show you what can be achieved with very low light.
