Photographer Jim Baugh has continued to capture the fall night sky for us. His latest work is a night at the Cape Charles Museum.
New Nightscape!: Cape Charles History Museum, well , at least what is sitting by the entrance. We filmed this place for the ESVA Tourism Film and just thought it was a great museum, and these two objects in front, right by the road had always caught my eye. For a while I thought it would make an interesting Nightscape, so with permission, I filmed it tonight. This is an old tractor in the background, and in the foreground a horse drawn cultivator.
Very cool, and whenever you go in and out of Cape Charles, you pass it every time. When I was setting up the shot it was around nautical twilight, this nice lady comes up to me and starts looking at the cultivator. She ask if I knew what this thing was, I told her not really. Well, she was looking at this piece of farm equipment like it was a long-lost friend. She said, “I have more memories of using one of these than I care to remember”. I said really? Turns out she was from Norway and lived on a farm as a child and regularly plowed the fields during her childhood.
You really meet some interesting folks while out filming nightscapes. Really cool. Go check out the Museum sometime but do check for hours with the Covid thing going on, Worth the trip. Enjoyed this shoot, Cheers.
