Wide Falls

This is a pano of Thomsen Falls.  It let me get the whole thing nicely and the afternoon light was really popping.

Milky all the Way

The night sky gets reasonably dark in Red Wing and you can capture a decent Milky Way. but nothing like northern MN on a clear night. These were just after midnight on 7/24. We got the bonus of a little aurora looking north.

Explodey Things

I spent the afternoon of the 4th debating whether or not to go out and shoot the fireworks.  I’m glad I did.  It was a beautiful evening and I got some great shots.

The Night

Dark Sky Finder only shows Red Wing as moderately dark and certainly nowhere near northern MN, but on a clear, non-humid night you can get a decent Milky Way.  I could live in a lot worse places.

Off the Patio

I haven’t shot for a while but this is right off my patio, so there’s no excuse.

Textured Landscape

This is from Hell’s Half Acre in Wyoming.  There is so much going on here that it’s almost an abstract.

I wouldn’t want to have to hike through here…
