2 months, no rain, 30°+ days. All the grass is dead, and I've never seen a drought like this ever.

Been like this for weeks. No rain in over a month either. Everybody's grass is dead except for mine because I'll water it once a week

It's just a small Hudson X4 Code Black. But it still goes up 100 meters.

It's my birthday this week, so I'm switching it up and giving things away! My entire catalog is either free or 99 cents from now until I decide to stop it, so jump! And help spread the word.

This includes my first novel, a lurid, grotesque homage to the pulps of yore. The blurb:

"Brief, violent, and unpredictable, yet thrilling to be in the middle of." - goodreads reviewer
 
A scoundrel with a secret seeks the key to escaping the end of the world. An exiled gunslinger, waiting to die, is called back for one more job. A radioactive man is sold into service as an assassin by a mysterious cult. As their stories intertwine, all three are caught between rival mobs, an invincible killer, and a plot to upset an uneasy peace between once-warring nations. While far above the planet, a phantasmal apocalypse looms.
 
Dinosaurs. Robots. Cannibal fairies. A brain in a vat. A giant squid. Nazi Amazons. Super-soldiers. A war dragon. An assassin cult. Unicorns. Wereninjas. Animal-human hybrids. And a kaiju god of destruction. The battle for the fate of the world starts with a betrayal in a cemetery . . . and a stray phallus.
 
Equal parts mutant crime noir and sci-fantasy adventure, FANTASMAGORIA is my twisting, turning, genre-bending debut.
 
"The butt-kicking starts right on page one and just keeps on going at a relentless pace until the end." - amazon reviewer
 
"You will not say 'I've read 10 books with this same plot'... I guarantee it." - audible reviewer

Man, so cool. Light pollution from Toronto, I could never see that.
 
Sugarloaf by Night Photosphere

This is a 360 degree photomosaic of Sugarloaf Rock by Night. In the night sky, we see the Milky Way arch, the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds and the Zodiacal Lights.

Consisting of 63 individual frames, it took 32 minutes to capture the entire photo with the final image rendering at over 400 megapixels. While each frame was down-sampled from 24MP to 16MP, this is still the largest image I've ever taken and was a huge challenge for my computer to stitch and process. The final rendering took over half an hour to export.

Location: Sugarloaf Rock, Naturaliste, WA

Look at this!
 
"Perthling"

Many Earthlings live their lives without ever seeing the Milky Way. Light pollution from major cities spread hundreds of kilometers, engulfing the stars, galaxies and other celestial objects.

I am blessed to be living in Perth, Western Australia. The most isolated city in Australia, where dark skies are just an hour out of the city and the raw WA landscape gives a real sense of the outback.

On this night, I traveled to the Lancelin Sand Dunes, 2 hours North of Perth, and captured an image that I have been trying for over a year, The Explorer figure coined by Michael Goh.

I'm just happy to finally check it off my to-do list.

Was on a delivery and was told by the manager I wasn't allowed in their parking lot, and was asked to go around, which wouldn't have been a big deal but then he added unless I want to kill little children. That is by far, the rudest, most ignorant thing anyone has ever said to me. And seeing how I have 2 small children of my own, I did not appreciate the remark. When I confronted him about his remarks, he then brought my sick mother into the picture. I'm boycotting sobeys, and I hope everyone else does too.
