Solargraphy Project: Sunrise over Canal

I’m testing some new, smaller pinholes (for better sharpness) in some relatively short-duration solargraphs. I’m also using a lovely new Epson Perfection V700 scanner. The image below was an 18-day exposure of the rising sun over a canal in the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area, between Sacramento and Davis.

Here’s the camera: a 1-quart paint can with a 0.6 mm pinhole (low-tech, made with a quilting pin in a piece of aluminum cut from a pie pan), mounted at ground level on the edge of the canal.
