Here, for your enjoyment, is a picture I took about a month ago at a church campout.

We drove north of Lubbock to Palo Duro Canyon and spent one night at the State Park there. It was fun but it was COLD!

If I went again I would have to be a little better prepared. I didn’t have my sleeping bag with me at school so I tried the old “two blanket trick” but it was way too cold for that.

I like how in this picture if you look really hard you can see the sky in the background. It was a timed exposure (length was about 5-8 seconds) and so you ge the cool blurry effect.

Signing off…

    that is really cool that you were able to get a picture of such quality in the dark. i guess the timed exposure thing helps.

    I actually balanced the camera on the mirror of a handy truck that happened to be near. Never could have gotten such clarity without a steady surface.

    Ooooh, I camped there on a student senate retreat when I was at Tech. Beautiful place; great sunsets.

    Very nice shot.

Thought For The Week

I want to clarify that there is no political problem that is not really a heart problem with hearts not connected to Christ. Only one Kingdom is really important, and this isn't it.

But just as it's sad to see poorly coded software, a badly built building, or an ugly city, it's even more sad to see a nation being thrown away. As custodians of this earth, we should do better.

-Mark Ritchie
