Cot­ton Grass in Mid­night Breeze Dag Røt­tereng, Nor­way I imag­ined tak­ing a pic­ture of cot­ton­weed danc­ing in the soft breeze of a sum­mer’s night. Nor­we­gian sum­mer nights are not dark, but bathed in mys­tic blue light. This fin­ished pic­ture con­sists of three pho­to­graphs merged to­gether: for the first shot I moved the cam­era, for the sec­ond I kept it static, and for the third I used a flash. It took hours un­til I fi­nally got the de­sired re­sult. Nikon D800, 20mm f/2.8, three ex­po­sures at 5 secs, 5 secs and 1/100 sec, all at f/11, ISO50
