Moonlit Alders

Holga, Exposure 3-4 min, Kodak Ektar 100

After finishing up a night run in Portland's, Forest Park, last December, I grabbed my medium format Holga camera and walked to this spot a short distance from my vehicle. Portland was under an inversion at the time, which made for some extremely calm and foggy conditions. I was standing at 1000ft in elevation, the transition zone between the dense clouds and the starry night sky. The diffused glow from the moon intermittently illuminated this stand of alders, making for some interesting photo opportunities. I almost always find myself shooting alder forests using a low-angled perspective such as this. This particular exposure was right around 3 or 4 minutes. © Tyson Fisher
