Boat dock island

Boat dock island

My first solargraphy experiment worked! I made my own pinhole camera and left it out for 25 days. Though the image isn't very clear, you can vaguely see the smooth water and the palm tree island across the marina from my boat docks. However I'm assuming that the camera was moved because of the two streaks from the sun instead of one...but I'm not completely sure. Let me know what you think!

    I actually think there was an article about this in the tipster section. I know it was very popular but I'm not exactly sure when it was written...I'll have to go find it!

    maybe the two streaks are from the sun and the moon?!?

    It can't be the sun and the moon as the brightness of the day cancels out the moon streaks. The slightly darker landmass in the distance seems similar in form to the larger fainter one behind when you look at the 'real thing' is it the same as this, is it an inlet? if not then the camera definitely moved across and that will account for the double streak. Also 25 days, it's possible that these denote the beginning and end of the period especially if you had dull days between, though I can't imaging living there!!

    Yeah that's what I thought at first, about the sun and the moon, which would've been cool....
    I put another one out last night, hopefully that one comes out better!
