I love the timeless feel of black and white in this image of the Green River appearing to flow into the Milky Way taken during our visit to Dinosaur National Monument. Scouting the park during the day revealed this overlook location looking south over the sweeping ‘S’ curve. Apps on my phone confirmed that the Milky Way would be in the right position over the river from that vantage point.
I’ve found there are some very strong feelings about wind farms among the people who live near them. They mostly object to the noise and the bright flashing lights at night.
I love light painting night scenes so this was a good opportunity to use our car as the light source to paint light on the road and the surrounding hillsides. And a big “thank you” to my wife Debbie for getting up with me in the middle of the night so I could get the photo of her driving by.
A flurry of fireflies flitting about. This long seven minute exposure captured hundreds of lightning bugs flying around in my backyard.
When I was a kid in the 1960’s lightning bugs were a childhood staple of summertime entertainment. Kids today seem far more interested in video games and iPods than chasing bugs in the dark. I can’t help but think they’re missing out of something.
