(visited by Sam Gallucci)

31-May-2007 -- While still getting used to my new surroundings here in Colorado I decided to try for a popular (easy) confluence. Last night seemed to be the perfect time. The moon was full and somewhat visible. The perfect time for a night confluence. I stopped on the south side of Baseline and set up the camera for the shots. There seemed to be a new sign for Pulte Homes. They are now advertising the homes starting in the $360Ks.

Pulte Homes

My shots were taken for 64 seconds at an aperture of 3.4. The field is still a field. I'd give it 4 years before they start construction. I didn't venture to zero-point because it was still too dark to see the fence and anything else in my way. I forgot to bring a flashlight...(actually it's still packed).

I continued on to a geodash afterward.
