While taking this picture on this cold dark night, 2 people would come by while exposing this shot. I promised to show them the comet when I would be finished, which I did. They were so exited that they would come back a minute later with a freshly filled can of mapple sirup. The can was still hot, so I could use it to warm my hands !
