Day 192

From my star gazing last night: Horizon to horizon in 7 photos!  It took 13 last time!  {!-{>  Actually while the stars were out there was so much smoke in the air that the exposures took twice as long. North is at the top! Click on it a couple of times to see it best […]

Day 191

A little star gazing and a bit of Milky Way! That is an airplane streaking across the left side…no meteors were photographed…seen, yes… A bit of Northern Lights competing with the lights of the City?  There are suppose to be more tonight! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 190

Still off on a tangent…we’ll get back to Alaska yet!  {!-{> There is a Total Solar Eclipse coming on the 21st of August, 2017.  It can be seen across the whole center of the US, including Idaho…the area of totality (complete sun blockage by the Moon) does include five or six square miles of Montana, […]

Day 189

The Dailylife Wife was cutting a red pepper for an ingredient in tonight’s dinner… Where the heck was this three weeks ago?  The theme for the State Fair photography this year was red. <<sigh>>  All photos were from my cellphone, BTW. And the dinner was: Italian Zucchini Boats!  Pretty good, too.  And low carb…{!-{P ~Curtis […]

Day 188

Morning down by the River in mid-July. *** A one photo panorama… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 187

More action(?) at the Montana State Fair! A four photo panorama of the Photographic Exhibits, complete with Member(s), the Old Guard and the current Leadership. (Don’t forget to click on the photo a couple of times to enlarge it; BACK to return here!) A three photo panorama in fisheye mode…mildly noticeable… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 186

More light action at the Montana State Fair! Ghosts on the Tilt-A-Whirl!  Riding!   Dismounting! Waiting! More ghosts, now on the Midway… * ** * Okay, the last of the Midway lights, at least until I can get the GIF’s done… This field trip by the Camera Club was a lot of fun, and I […]

Day 185

More light action at the Montana State Fair! The Zipper. Yes, there are definitely some GIF’s coming from this expedition! *   ** *   ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 184

More light action at the Montana State Fair! The kids high-speed rollercoaster caught on my low-speed camera!   The Ferris Wheel…I think I see an animated GIF coming from this… * ** This is the Tornado and the Zipper in the background. The strange blur around the Tornado are the riders… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 183

We interrupt these regularly schedule whales to bring you the lights of the Montana State Fair! The Great Falls Camera Club had a photo shoot last night at the State Fair.  Here are mine. The Midway viewed from the Food Court.  All exposures are from 2 to 10 seconds.  Aperture is most irrelevant since I […]
