Change of Pace with the Night Sky

Two more concerts for Baroque on Beaver today -- an afternoon 'pop up' featuring the brass group, and an evening performance by the Festival Chorus and the string section of the orchestra. After downloading all the photos from the events, I was feeling overwhelmed. The solution? Go with one of our visiting friends down to the beach, with camera and tripod, to photograph the night sky. It was actually a joy -- totally fun, just for me, and no people in the images! Back to Baroque photos tomorrow...
Major lesson learned today...when photographing an event, one must always look to see if the memory card is in the camera. Discovering at the event that it is, in fact, at home in the computer, is a major embarrassment, covered (hopefully) by some (again, hopefully) useful iPhone shots. The best camera is the one with you AND that actually functions.
and what a result! I'm so glad I don't remove my card, just wifi or directly cable from the camera or I'm sure I'd do this too!

iPhones come in handy. I went on a photo walk last week and when I got there I realised my battery was flat and I left the spare at home on the charger. Beautiful capture

Wonderful capture. I took pictures of my nephews wedding back in days of film - there was film in the camera but it was connected right and didn't move forward. They are divorced now.

A lovely image - and so annoying when the SD card is left in the computer!

Oh, I feel your embarrassment at the memory card incident. So easy to do though, I've done it often. Lovely relaxed night sky capture.

A great night shot as a change of pace for you. And I'm sure we've all had an incident with one of those pesky SD cards! :)

This is lovely, awesome on black. Yay for cameras that work. 😊

Oh so easy to make that mistake when the pressure is on. Thank goodness for quality cameras on phones nowadays. Sounds like you did exactly what was needed by getting away from it all to do something just for you. And the night sky looks tremendous on Beaver Island.

That's so easy to do. One of the things I love about my camera is that it takes two memory cards:)

Starry starry night! Italy has such a light pollution that it’s hard to take a picture of stars. interedting and heart warming that even the best from time to time forget their card in the computer!

Looking at the sky is a nice way to relax from dealing with people.

Night sky is on my list and Assateague is the perfect place. I have seen some amazing captures there. My camera strap has two little pockets on each side . I have a memory card in one. Been there done that .... Ugh now the little pocket saves me.

Totally magic.

Wonderful! The cloudy milky way is lovely. Fantastic skill.

Beautiful star shot! I'm embarrassed to admit that I've done the same thing Many times.Especially when traveling. Or I have run out of battery and left the extra one back at the hotel. I actually carry an extra camera card in my wallet now. It does come in handy.

Awesome picture.

Beautiful!! Since I have to download photos to my laptop via a cable I never have the camera card problem- but I do go crazy about making sure I have the extra battery with me.
