    I scouted a location with the intention of photographing fireflies. Unfortunately the location was not conducive to the insects so I started to hike 1.5 miles back to my car. On my way, I passed an area with more fireflies than I could have ever imagined! Ground fog was forming and magic happened when my friend turned a flashlight in my direction. This image is comprised of 40, 30-second shots layered in CC2017.

    This is such a dreamy image! You saw a magical scene and worked to capture it beautifully. I appreciate that you were transparent in how you captured the image - with multiple exposures. Magical photograph!
