Easily one of the strangest things I've ever seen. This is the world's largest solar power plant on the California/Nevada border just outside Las Vegas. Thousands of acres of mirrors reflect light to three of these towers in the middle, kind of like the magnifying glass burning paper thing we did as kids, but on a massive scale. 300Mw capability. I caught this with a variable density ND filter dialed way up so I could capture something recognizable through the blinding light. The reflected light is so intense, you can see it beaming off of the tower in broad daylight.

Existential Week
We're near the end of Boulder's annual cloudy week. It's a nice change of pace from the constant sunshine, but it always produces an odd lens through which life gets considered. I'm looking forward to some sunshine; go away clouds! Over the past several day...

Rant On Music Listening: Library Bifurcation, Offline Listening, and Bitrates
Listening to music is hard again. Library Bifurcation To listen to all the songs I like, I have to have some of my music in iTunes, and some of it in Rdio (I pay the $15/mo and always have). Once I decide which music I want to listen to, I fire up the App t...

Canon 5Dsr First Impressions
1/8000' exposure, f1.8, ISO 100, 50mm I've been using the new Canon 5Dsr for a few days now. I'm quite certain it'll replace my 6D, but I want more time with it to be sure. The Good 50 megapixels; 8,688 x 5,792 resolution. Great for landscape shots and stuf...

Running in Tokyo
After a handful of trips to Tokyo, and associated runs, over the past few years I thought I'd share some routes and tips. I've only stayed in the central Roppongi area, so my launches are from hotels there. Hang left. The Japanese drive on the left-side of ...
