The Hound of The Baskervilles II

". . . I counsel you by way of caution to forbear from crossing the moor in those dark hours when the powers of evil are exalted."
(Hugo Baskerville's document, read by Dr Mortimer)

"They say it is the cry of the Hound of the Baskervilles.’"
(Holmes, to Sir Henry after hearing the sound).

Continuing now, with the investigation (elementary?) of the text, the G10, the question of how much blur/noise/etc. is too much, and the hazards of working with a canine model, Eschewing a tripod, working hand-held, with shutter speeds hovering 'round one-half to one full second (or two) in length, likewise concerning oursleves very little with substantial depth of field (not out usual best practices) - with these images we started honing in on certain elements of the 'near nocturne' - all the while recalling passages of this most famous work by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

"Life has become like that great Grimpen Mire, with little green patches everywhere into which one may sink and with no guide to point the track." (Dr. Watson)

More to follow . . . (in The [not so] Daily Nocturne)

("But now we have to prove the connection between the man and the beast.")
