A picture a week from around town, or around the world!

Eclipsed Moon Over Neyland Stadium

Okay, some of y'all are gonna be mad.  Last week I promised fall color pictures for this week, and these are clearly NOT fall color pictures.  At least not in the sense of there being trees with orange leaves in it.  It is, however, a color image, and it was taken in...

Welp, it is sadly that time of year again!  That time where we bid farewell to the core of the Milky Way until it begins to rise in our morning skies in late February next year.  It is time to bid this night photography series adieu as well!  I wanted to end my series...

Last Light on the Henry Mountains

Needles in the Desert

Needles in the Desert

I mentioned last week that my buddy Zach had driven out to Utah to meet me, and because he has a 4x4 truck, we were able to get out to some places that neither one of us had ever been.  This week's pictures are from such a place - and in fact, that is true of all the...

Cracked Earth

Cracked Earth

If you've been following along for any amount of time, you know that I love the night sky and nightscape photography.  What you may not realize, though, is that I actually plan my trips around the cycles of the moon so that I have optimal conditions for capturing the...
