It’s very compressed in this view. Please click on the photo to see it large. It really does look better!

The night before the WorldWide Photowalk I did a little night photography. The Milky Way shot I want still eludes me…one day I’ll get it!
The Moon was a bit too bright for this shot to come out the way I had envisioned it, but the color from the light pollution, the cloud formation, and the pine trees in silhouette made this shot for me.

This is a southwestern sky.

  1. You still got something pretty magical. Love the underlighting of the cloud; looks alien. And silhouettes are almost always cool.

    We have a problems finding a place away from light pollution here; would have to go to Molokai or the Big Island to get that consistently. I have heard of one place that is almost light-free, but would want to get a group together for that, because of the area.

    1. Thank you so much! Yes, if you go to that area take a group! With lots of BIG men! 🙂
      You know, I’m so grateful that this is still a field of study/hobby practiced predominantly by men b/c I am safer with them!

A penny for your thoughts...
