A lovely night on the shores of Mono Lake. Temperatures were pleasant and the moon light perfect.
Shooting Star & the Milky Way
While taking some night long exposures I was lucky enough to capture the shooting star on the right. It was very bright and colorful and made the night very special.
Wheeler Peak + Milky Way + Fall Colors
I had this shot in mind from the first time I visited GBNP. We returned last fall and I had my chance. The scene was much more challenging that I expected. And the photo processing also much more challenging than expected. Here is my first result
Bisti Badlands Under the Night Sky
Nothing shows off the Hoodoos of Bisti better than the night sky.
Hoodoos Under The Stars
Clouds! Finally! That may seem like an unusual thing for a night sky photographer to say. But I was really happy to see these wispy clouds moving in to add dimension to the New Mexico night sky.
The moment when the moon just peaks over the hoodoos in the distance.

Hoodoos & the milky way. What's not to love!
That's a Very Old Log
I was fascinated by the petrified logs up on mud pedestals. This is my portrait of one of those logs.
New Mexico badlands at their finest.
I have in mind this composition since the first time I discovered these sand tufas. I finally got a changes to implement it!
