Playful Prairie Pups

Time for a little humor. I spotted these two young Prairie Dogs in Theodore Roosevelt NP earlier this summer. While all the adults seem intent on watching for predators and such, these two simply delighted in playing tag - or was it King of the Hill? One may not be able to make a mountain out of a mole hill, but then, Prairie Dogs are just a little larger than moles!

Perseids Pair

Two meteors radiating out from Perseus seemingly bracketing the Milky Way , just after passing Cassiopeia and under the watchful eye of Andromeda. (Actually, two images a few minutes apart, aligned and blended in Photoshop.) Sometimes it's fun to just point the camera straight up and see what you can capture!

Storm Coming

I love views of Devils Tower, WY. What many people miss though, is that it is in the middle of cattle country in the far northeast of Wyoming. There's just mile after mile of land all around it that are farms and ranches ... mostly ranches, I suppose!

My First Milky Way

I've been wanting to do this, well ... FOREVER! Finally, everything came together and I gave it a try. The location is behind Devils Tower, WY. (Next time I'll try to get the tower in the foreground!)

Processing was in Lightroom and Photoshop. Four images aligned and merged then processed mainly using Channels to create a mask, then applying curves adjustments.

This shot was worth losing a little sleep over!
