Ride the Sky

Ride the Sky takes you on a journey through the forest and on into the Universe.

I had the idea of a new astro time-lapse technique in which the camera is pointed right at the north star and mounted to a motorized pivot point directly lined up with the sensor so the camera is able to spin with the stars through the night. Sit back, relax and Ride the Sky.

Life in the Void

[Best viewed on black background!] In a remote area of the Colorado plateau is a fascinating expanse of undulating sandstone punctuated with dozens of “potholes,” some more than 50 feet deep. In many of the holes you can find pools of water and plant life, including a few with good-sized cottonwood trees growing up out of them.

I particularly love being out under the stars in such surreal locations. It’s both humbling and exhilarating staring up at our Milky Way and realizing our solar system is one of billions in our galaxy, which itself is just one of billions of galaxies in the cosmos. Quite a lesson in perspective.

The sky exposure was at f/2.8, 25 sec, ISO 5000; the terrain exposure was taken around first light of dawn, f/8.0, 30 sec, ISO 100. Thanks for looking, and I’d love to have you follow me here and on FACEBOOK.
