Chisos Mountains South Rim

sunset from the south rim of the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend. I wanted to photograph sunset and the Milky Way from the south rim, so I packed up 2 gallons of water for an over night trip in my backpack and hiked up the 6+ miles to the rim. It was cloudless which was tough for a sunset but made it great for Milky Way. Here is sunset overlooking the rim and the desert below.

Milky Way over the Nolan River

The galactic core has returned to the night sky!! I went out Sunday morning to wade down the Nolan River in the dark by myself and see if I could get an image of the Milky Way over the river. The galaxy rises in the last hour of dark before sunrise in the east. I got to this spot, set up and was able to capture the arc of the Milky Way over the trees and the river.

Good to see the galactic center again and I know what I will be doing for my new moon weekends.

Trempealeau River Sunset

A winter sunset along the Trempealeau River in Wisconsin. The cold and snow of winter was my favorite season in the north woods, when the world was white and bare. Add in the empty factor and it was fun to photograph.

Guadalupe Mountains

Sunset light on the Guadalupe Mountains over an ephemeral desert lake. The salt flats West of the mountains will sometimes hold enough water from major rains to form a shallow lake. I spent the whole day in the rain hiking and made my way here late in the day. I arrived in rain with heavy clouds all around, no light and the Mountains were not visible. Then, as if magic, the clouds began to part in the last few minutes of the day, the Mountains appeared and the light happened. It was a very spectacular sunset. Luck and planning came together at the right spot.

Skye

The coastal cliffs near Kilt Rock. Standing here in the wind taking in the view was pretty awe inspiring. With many people jostling to get the view of of the falls there, I went to look in the other direction and thought it was actually better. Next time I look for the path down the cliffs.

Ancient Remains

The Milky way shines in the #TexasNightSky above an ancient volcano in Big Bend National Park. The geology of the park combines with the dark skies of west Texas to make it my favorite location for Nightscape Photography.

Snow in the Chisos

Fresh snow covers the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend National Park. This is from my Christmas 2015 trip when I arrived at the park in a blizzard with 40+mph winds. The next morning we were treated to views like this. I was back in December 2016 and it was 80 degrees...... Welcome to Texas.

The Tetons

A rainy morning in Grand Teton National Park. Fall color, rain and interesting light were the ingredients of a good morning watching the light come up in the Tetons. I hiked out in the rain and was very happy with the experience. This was one of the highlight images of the morning.
