Summer Night Dreams I by ~Quit007 Now this certainly isn't something you see everyday, a wonderful shot of Fire Flies ...I love the sense of motion and movement in this shot, a very unique capture! ( Featured by kkart )

This picture is pretty magical. I half-expect a dwarf to appear out of the bushes or a unicorn to step out of the darkness.

Lovely! My wife is Japanese and the first time she saw a fire fly was in a travel in South America.
I believe it is a hard task to find it here in Japan.
You did a great job.

What is the location? And what day? I would like to visit this place!

Thank you,
Well actually I took this image in Germany. However as I was in Japan there was in Daikakuji-temple (Kyoto) a ceremony when the priests let the fireflies (see images in my firefly folder).
But I saw them also in Nara to the west of Todaiji on the way from the temple complex. I was really angry that I didn't have my equipment with me since I tried to photograph them the day before in, but obviously in the wrong place.

OH! Nara! I’ve been there late 2010. they have a very tasty rice cake.
For your next travel I'll suggest you the mountains of Yamanashi. I'll be there next summer to take some photos of the milky way.

You can have a look on my journal if you're interested what I do to the images (such as reduce the noise). Aside from that its all genuine :)

These are fireflies?! How'd you take this picture?
Reply
:iconquit007:
Quit007 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2010
It is basically a long term exposure (>3s) with very high ISO (>2000) and very fast lenses (f-number > 1.2). I still do then some tricks to reduce the noise, but that's it actually. :)
