The other side of the box.

This is another view of this picture. I have taken this picture from a different place, and illuminated it. The “normal” thing to do, considering it was dusk in the forest when I took the picture, would be to use a flash. I used a torch instead (to any US reader: what the Britons call torch you call flashlight…). With the camera on a tripod, and the a large apperture, I started the timer on the camera, took a few paces off to the side and started waving my torch like mad, trying to illuminate only those parts of the scene I wanted lit. Mostly, I didn’t want to shine any light on the trees in the background.
