Midnight Voyageur Journal: Nighttime at the County Fair

Last night in the steamy heat that has settled in over the Midwest, I headed to the even hotter Dane County Fairgrounds for the annual fair. Not many people were there (smart!) so I had ample room to set up my tripod and take some long exposures. I loved capturing the light on the rides and had a hard time choosing among the photos for this blog. One of my favorite detail in the two landscape photos of the YOYO is the big ring over the ride. That ring is the riders in mid-flight! (You will need to open the Gallery to see this.)  My patient husband hung out with me, acting as my production assistance to carry the tripod and camera bag. Just when I felt that I had taken enough photos and captured the scenes I liked, he said “I’ve had enough!” And we headed home.
