I have been pretty busy working with my designer on getting a new look to the website. Check out the galleries! I’m sure you have noticed some changes, if not you’re blind and have no business looking at a photoblog :)
Recently, I took a trip to my friends property on the Wenatchee river. I took this long exposure just as the sun went down and the stars came out. You don’t get that many opportunities photographing stars in the city so this was a fun challenge. I only got a few chances at this with exposures up to 30 minutes. Man that was a pain hoping that something would come out! Anyone who knows me knows that I have little to no patience so this was a good exercise. Now I know what I can do better next time. Do you have any good star photos? If so leave me a comment!
On one of my last nights in Kauai Janette took me to Polihale State Park. We went on Halloween night. A time when some believe the line between our world and the spiritual world becomes its thinnest. We decided to camp and I’ve never seen so many stars.
A cluster of stars created a rip in the sky which traveled to the other side of the sand dunes that surrounded our tent. We decided to head to the beach and see where this rift ended. At the end of the horizon a green glow beamed like portral way. According to author Agnes “Aggie” Marti-Kini His Holiness the Dalai Lama wanted to visit Polihale because it is where souls leave for the next world.
It surely seemed that way.
I photographed this from the inside of the Herald sign overlooking downtown. It was quite the frigid night.
