Streaks of Light

Looking across the Bonneville Salt Flats at cars racing past on I-80. With the galactic core of the Milky Way being in the SW images including it had the interstate running through the image and I picked up some light trails from the cars.

The Great Basin

Twilight over the the mountains and desert basins of the Great Basin. A big empty land that I was lucky enough to spend a week exploring.

Clear Fork Fall Colors

Fall color continues to roll across Texas. I returned to this view on the Clear Fork of the Trinity River. See back a few posts in this Collection from two weeks ago. This was this last weekend. Some nice yellow in the trees.

Another big change was the river has come up. I was unable to get here in my Wellies and had to go back home for the hip-waders. Then I was able to wade up the river to get this shot. It was late on an overcast day, I added a ND filter and took the exposure out to 30 seconds. Got some nice motion in the leaves on the water.

I wonder what this weekend brings?

Beleriand- March of Maedhros

A trail in the hills along the way to Himring in the March of Maedhros. Long was this land defended by the bravery of Maedhros until the Battle of Unnumbered Tears.

Virgin River and Milky Way

The stars shine in the night sky over the Virgin River deep in Zion National Park. The trails of Zion are very busy in the day, but at night I had the park to myself and I was able to photograph the stars from one of the foot bridges over the Virgin River.

Campsite on the Lost Mesa

Our camp on the Lost Mesa

From May of 2012 when we journeyed to the Lost Mesa to watch the Annular Eclipse. This is a wild, lonely, off the map location. There are no signs telling you how to get here, only a few unmarked gravel roads that eventually find their way here. Far beyond cell phone service, gas stations and all the things we take for granted. It was here we watched the eclipse photographing it with ancient rock art.

Nolan River Fall Colors

I visited the Nolan River again this weekend. Quite a bit of color change in seven days. Here is another view of the boulder with a wider view to show the bluff. I never tire of visiting here and like the cooler temps and colors of fall. It is also nice to be able to walk through the trees in daylight and not at 0200 dodging spider webs like in the summer months.

Zion Narrows

A view from deep in the Zion Narrows. You wade the frigid waters of the Virgin River in a very deep and narrow canyon. Light bounces down the canyon walls creating chances for some great images.

Milky Way to the Eye vs Milky Way to the Camera

I was asked the question of what the Milky way looks like to the eye when I am in the field vs what a final image looks like. This is a good example to what I see vs what the camera can see.

You can see the Milky Way with the eye. It will look like a white cloud in the sky. and the darker it is and the more your eyes are used to the dark, the better you will see it. The big difference is your eyes cannot see as much of the color of it.

The camera can see much more.

My typical exposure (such as this image )is a 25 second exposure. That allows the camera to gather much more light and data to make the image. If you have ever seen the NASA images from the Hubble telescope those are often many hours worth of exposure data, sometimes over several days. Mine are much simpler. Typically 13-25 seconds depending on the lens.

I take the shot and can get a great image in just a few seconds that I can bring back to share.

So in this shot (from the dark skies of Big Bend) when I was standing there in the dark I can see the stars and the Milky Way. I can see the glow on the horizon from the tiny village of Lajitas and I can see the land forms as shadowy shapes. The camera can see the land in detail and can pick up the very faint color in the sky my eyes cannot see. It allows me to "see" a bit more.
