Milky Way in Black and White

Black and white fine art photo of the Milky Way over the Green River at Dinosaur National Monument in Utah. Photo copyrigh 2017 by Craig Stocks
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.

Illinois Wind Farm at Night

Fine art photo by Craig Stocks showing an Illinois wind farm at night with the Milky Way in the skyI’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.

Light Painting on a Grand Scale

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 Firefly Flurry

Fine art photograph by Craig Stocks showing a flurry of fireflies in the woodsA 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.
