Dark Skies, Warm Nights :: VT

Dark Skies, Warm Nights :: VT

 

It’s snowing and sleeting here today, so I spent my time daydreaming of warmer nights under the stars. ✨🌙❤

This was taken in lower VT, and is the first night sky photography trip that I brought the dogs along for. I wasn’t sure if they would be good, to be honest, but they surprised me by being patient and well mannered to whole night (which is quite an accomplishment for the younger dog).

The only time they started growling was after everyone else had left, and something big started moving in the woods behind us. It didn’t take long for whatever it was to move along.

Who’s a good dog? My dog! (Sometimes.) 🐶

For those of you looking to learn a bit more about star trails, you can check out my article in Light & Landscape (Issue 31), or wait for the upcoming book on night sky photography! 🙂  Want to know more about that?  Sign up for my newsletter, and follow me on social media for the latest updates.

“I don’t know what’s in the stars
Never heard it from above, the world isn’t ours
But I know what’s in my heart
If you ain’t mine I’ll be torn apart
I don’t know who’s gonna kiss you when I’m gone
So I’m gonna love you now, like it’s all I have
I know it’ll kill me when it’s over
I don’t wanna think about it, I want you to love me now…”

Shoutout to David Pasillas for the second pair of eyes on this edit. Shoutout to Iceland for being so dang purty! 🇮🇸

“One life on this earth is all that we get, whether it is enough or not enough, and the obvious conclusion would seem to be that at the very least we are fools if we do not live it as fully and bravely and beautifully as we can.” -Frederick Buechner

Some of us were born with a wandering gypsy soul. There are days that I think about all of the choices, good and bad, that have brought me to where I am now. I wonder how different my life would be if I gotten the things I thought I wanted. I wonder if I will ever get the things I still do want. I wonder at what life has in store for me. Whatever it is though, I hope it will always allow me to wander, and to fill my soul with joy. In the meantime, I’ll try to keep appreciating the little moments of happiness and the opportunities I’ve had to grow, even when it’s hard. In the meantime, I’ll keep exploring, and making memories and choosing bravery, even when it seems like a monumental choice. Because I suppose, that’s when it counts the most.

This or That? Opinions needed!

This is one of those beautiful small  scenes the Catskills in NY is known for. We got here during mediocre light (by photographer standards…aka a nice day to everyone else haha) so I struggled a bit with this edit.  What do you guys prefer?  Black & White?  Or color?

Also, the holiday gift giving season is upon us.  If anyone wants a print or two, let me know!

It’s moments like these that remind you how incredibly beautiful our world can be, and to appreciate the important things in life. ❤️ .

On that note, I’m having a print sale to raise money for a 4 yr old just diagnosed with stage IV cancer. If you’ve ever thought you might want some of my art on your walls, now would be a great time to do it.  🙂

My newest article, a basic guide to star trails came out in Light & Landscape Magazine . If you’ve ever thought you wanted to try to capture the movement between the planet and the stars (on purpose 😋), then you need to read this instructional guide! 📸🌠🌌 This photo is several exposures, stacked for the stars. Some friends and I went to Nubble lighthouse in Maine looking for northern lights , but the kp died down before we got there. Ah well…at least the stars were pretty. ❤️ Taken with a Nikon d810.

Access to clean water is something most Americans take for granted. However, globally there are approximately 783 million people without clean water and approximately 2.5 billion without adequate sanitation. This results in death and disease, impacts food yield, causes conflicts, reduces available time spent on education, promotes gender inequality and holds impoverished communities back. In other words, clean water is LIFE. What are you doing to protect it? 💦
