This was taken atop Mingus Mountain in Northern Arizona, July 23rd, 2014. I used a wide angle lens with a :30 exposure. It is not as “Sharp” as I would have liked, but was amazed by the amount of stars that were visible in this shot, even with my camp ﬁre blazing, which is the only reason why you can see the surrounding trees! Also a personal favorite!
Another shot taken at the Stonehenge War Memorial along the Columbia River Gorge. This was to be the ﬁrst night of Astro Photography, weather willing, but as you can see, it was a cloudy, rainy day. Not to worry. I love this shot of a dormant, un manicured tree growing oﬀ of the side of the hill, the structure sits upon.
Also taken along the Columbia River Gorge at the Stonehenge War Memorial. We had visited this site a couple of diﬀerent times, most of which were overcast, and not condusive to Astro Photography. But this night, Mother Nature cooperated and allowed for a clear night!
