Stargazing in the deep woods

Last July I went back up to Brownfield, Maine to do some camping with friends. The stars were as gorgeous as ever up there. I created a bunch of shots, including some really long exposures of star trails, with a fire roaring at our campsite. It did an amazing job of illuminating the trees in the foreground under the stars. Here’s a few choice shots … Continue reading Stargazing in the deep woods

Stars above the Mountains

“If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding Caught in all, the stars are hiding That’s when something wild calls you home” Had the opportunity to do some snowshoeing in the mountains of Colorado yesterday with some friends (my first time!).

Pathway to the Stars

I found a pathway to the stars and its not too far from home 😀 Aligning the milky way galaxy with particular landscapes can prove challenging since the orientation of our galaxy’s core shifts directions as the months change.

A few introductory words… At 30 years old, I’ve had the opportunity to do a bit of traveling in my day. I’ve seen many beautiful places and met some sensational human beings. That being said, I can honestly say that New Hampshire is still one of the most brilliant locations I’ve ever ventured through. A short 3 hour drive north from my mission HQ in … Continue reading The National Park Service 100th Anniversary and an overnight hike on Mt. Carrigain

Looking into infinity

CALVIN: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently. HOBBES: How so? CALVIN: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day. HOBBES: We spent our day looking under rocks in the creek. CALVIN: I mean other people. ~ Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes … Continue reading Looking into infinity
