Patiently waiting for the return of Milky Way Season.

In the mean time here's one one of my favorite shots from our Haleakala expedition. :)

There's a lunar eclipse tomorrow night.

Fingers crossed for spontaneously cooperative weather like last month (when this photo was taken)! If it does happen to be clear in your neck of the woods the peak of the eclipse will be shortly before 5pm Pacific time though the moon won't be up until 5:45 so be looking for it right at sunset.

This birdie and his birdie friends patiently watched my plate for a good 20 minutes, just waiting for me to turn my head.

At this time, it is unknown how many baby potatoes were sacrificed to appease the bird gods.

Racing the sun up the mountain.

The gate to the top of Mt Tam opened at 7:10am. Sunrise was at 7:16. Let's just say it was a sprint to get in position for this shot back towards San Fransisco. Supposedly there is a trail that lets you bypass the gate, but that requires waking up even earlier...

Lick Observatory on Mt Hamilton

Finally starting to feel a bit human after a week of sleeping off the flu. Not back at 100% yet, but definitely ready to get back to work and new adventures. Really have the itch to make a trek back up to the Lick Observatory on Mt Hamilton at some point. Was fortunate to get to go many months ago. High winds forced the domes to close, but got to hang out in the control room with a handful of the staff and geek out about how far things have come since Lick came online in the late 1800's.

Day 3 of the flu and I'm finally starting to regain some cognitive functions.

Sadly, probably still a few more days before I can start adventuring again. In the meantime, here's one of my favorite waterfall shots from my recent Oregon expedition, courtesy of my trusty Pixel phone.

Went out to shoot comet 45P Honda-Mrkos-Pajduáková as it approached within a few degrees of the gorgeous cresent moon. Sadly, it turned out that my park astronomy permit had expired and the very nice park ranger regretfully had to kick me out before the clouds could clear. Ahh well, I did manage this wide angle shot through the clouds which I thought turned out pretty cool! Just pretend you can see the comet through it. ;)

Also, guess I need to renew my permit this week.

Time to pull out a map and figure out where we want to go.
