whimsy

Description

I need to explain this one. Under a large tree, thousands of golden midges are visible about 4-6 ft. off the ground in the evening. When the sun is setting they appear as dancing points of light. There was not enough light to use a fast shutter, and besides, I wanted a wide aperture. This is a picture at 300mm, f6.3, of the path of one of those midges over 1/6 of a second, carrying a bit of the setting sun with him (or her).

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
