"The Wisp" by Will Vrbasso

In the middle of the night, in a lonely creek surrounded by trees and darkness, I encountered the rarest of creatures - the Will'o'wisp of Australia (genus Ignis Fatuus Australis). Ok, maybe not.

As a change from the usual sweeping panoramas of the night sky, I wanted something a little more intimate. I also wanted to try using my remote flash to create a "wisp-like" effect. To do this, I bought some thin metal poles used to stake tomato plants, and assembled a make shift tripod to put the flash on. The thin poles makes it easier to erase in post-processing (as it turned out, they are so thin they they didn't make it into the image anyway).

I sought out a small creek in Chittering, and then after trodding about in the dark through ankle deep mud, found a spot where the trees don't completely cover the milkyway, but were close enough to be lit up by the wisp / flash.

There is some analogy here. The term "will-o-wisp" comes from "wisp" which translates to "torch". "Will" is the name of a not so well behaved person who was sent back to earth to roam in darkness forever as punishment (according to some folk tales). Hence "Will of the Torch". Since my name is Will, and I often hold a torch when wandering about at night, there is some similarity in these situations.
