Hey, everyone, over the winter break I managed to get away to Joshua Tree National Park for a couple of days and catch some zodiacal light in the east one morning. It was quite a show--possibly some of the clearest z-light I've ever seen with my eyes. Part of that may have been how cold it was--somewhere in the lower 20s Fahrenheit when I took this photo.
One more note: I've already announced my two (and only two) night-sky photography workshop dates for 2015, which can be seen here: http://www.bencoffmanphotography.com/star-photography-workshops-and-lessons/
These are comprehensive workshops, and the techniques I teach will help in every facet of your photography, from planning to post-processing. If you're looking to jump-start your photo skills this summer, I'd be honored if you let me teach you.
If you're looking to fill blank spaces on your wall, this photo's (titled "A fissure in the stars") is available as a limited-edition print. Contact me for more details.
