Day 269

More Harvest Moon. You might have notice a few lines running through the previous Moons.  In this photo you can just barely see a power line transmission tower, proving that there is always a better composition waiting on the other side of the road.  It was just silhouetted at the start of the moonrise and […]

Day 268

More Harvest Moon. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 267

The Harvest Moon Rise.  A little soft because it is shooting through a >>LOT<< of air. If you notice, there is a little red dot above and to the left. Yup!  Mars! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 192

Way behind…so here is a comet that won’t be back for 6,800 years…{!-{> Just above the sign, a little below middle and a bit left. A little Milky Way! The Moon, Comet and Big Dipper! More Milky Way. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 191

Friend Walter and I went out to see the Comet Neowise. A fisheye!  City lights, lower left; Milky Way, upper right; Comet Neowise, bottom center. Two so-so comet photos. Sunset. ~Curtis iin /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 189

A quick trip to Benton Lake for the sunset and then off for Comet Gazing! The Dailylife Daughter #1’s phone has one heck of an impressive camera.  It beats the heck out of my iPhone8! A closeup using the Canon 400mm L lens.  DD#1 or Toots. Another cellphone photo.  The comet is roughly to the […]

Day 159

A couple of years ago I posted a lot of photos from the Total Solar Eclipse that Toots and I traveled down to Idaho to see. Back on the 26th of February, 1979, I was in attendance at the previous Total Solar Eclipse visible from the Continental United States. From Bozeman, /\/\T, Montana State University. […]

Day 54

I finally left Bosque del Apache and headed West towards friend in Phoenix. Way up in the New Mexico high country is this. What is that? Well, it is the Very Large Array. From wikipedia: “The Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) is a centimeter-wavelength radio astronomyobservatory located in central New Mexico on the Plains of San Agustin, between […]

Day 53

At a campground near Mosque del Apache NWR. Not too shabby for an iPhone photo! Un-retouched. Just resized for viewing comfort. ~Curtis in /\/ew /\/\exico! {!-{>

Day 245

Camera Club Members Walter, Harlee, Rachel, and I went out to shoot the Northern Lights again last night. It was less exciting than the night before! And we stayed out longer, too. There were a few neat photos, like this one: a bit of Northern Lights and a couple flashes of lightning in the distant […]
