Photographer Abby Rowlee got this shot on an April night at her family’s sugarhouse (Hi-Hollow Maples) in Reading, Vermont, where the Rowlee family has lived and sugared for eight generations. “I had never done any night photography, but was inspired by some similar sugaring shots I had seen with long exposures and ember trails,” she explains. “I set the ISO to 100 and the lowest aperture I could get was 3.5. So then I basically played with the exposure time. This shot was 15 seconds. I really wanted to get some ember trails as they came out of the stack so I had to time the exposure with wood being loaded inside, which usually happens about every two minutes while boiling.”
