the photo blog about travel, history, and business
Short and sweet this week and more intermittent over the coming few months.
It's summertime and time to get outside and see what's going on. I hope you enjoy the warmer weather and have a safe season. We will be writing less for the next few months but still publishing images like the three here.
Above, we have the sun setting over Utah in early May. What you are looking at is part of Canyonlands National Park.
Below? Still Canyonlands National Park only this time it is closer to 3:00 a.m. Yes, there are people in the park that late, especially when it is a new moon and the skies are clear of clouds.
What you see in the lower right are the lights from headlamps and the backs of cameras from a local night sky photography class. They are standing on the edge of a ledge that looks out over the canyon vista that is shown in the daytime image below. They can see the stone wall that separates them from the canyon but the canyon itself is a giant black hole at this hour.
What you see above them is the Milky Way galaxy with it's galactic core in the lower to middle part of the frame. The arm of the galaxy rises from the core to the left.
I am standing back away talking with a man who had finished a triathlon earlier in the day and came out to see a dark night sky. The image is a single exposure of about 20 seconds.
