Summer Livin' & Outer Space

Suddenly I remembered that I have a Blog, and that I should update it with current and recent photography adventures and photos!

So I left off just as I had gotten my new D800 camera.  I had practiced with a few sunset shots, and a few storm clouds but at the time of my last post hadn't really gone exploring and adventuring with it. 

My first big adventure was actually a work training.  I was sent to a ghost town in Idaho called Florence.  There I worked with the Region 1 forest service historic preservation crew and restored an old log cabin that was pretty much the only remaining building of the once booming 6000+ population gold town.  I didn't get too many photos of the work in progress itself (mainly because I was working and not photographing) but the night sky was as dark as I have ever seen, and the opportunity to capture the Milky Way in all it's glory was peak!

                                           A few other shots with the D800 not from Idaho

Here are a few more space pics and a timelapse video I made.  Yes I am getting into timelapse video now too.  So much fun!!!i=3432253630&k=ffZj29h&lb=1&s=A

Andromeda Galaxy - This shot consists of about 50 different exposure, stacked ontop of each other to reduce noise and improve the detail.

That's about all for my update.  Can't wait to post new pics soon!
