Perigee Moon

Last night, if the skies were clear, you might have seen the largest appearing full moon in twenty years. The moon’s orbit is not circular, and this was the closest a full moon has been to the earth since 1993.

Star trail photo

Star trail photo comprised of 137 photos merged using the stacking program startrails. Each shot taken with a Nikon D90 with a NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 lens. Taken at f/1.8, ISO 200, 39 second exposures (one second in between each shot).

Star Trail Video

Pedal Power

Gore-Tex lined orange Tretorn high tops and an Orange Schwinn… each made better by the other. The ensemble is rounded off by a pair of hand made, boot cut Lucky Brand Jeans. Good stuff all around.

Night Sky

Today’s entry to Black and White week brings us an image of the night sky – but no stars. See how black and white processing can make a misty evening seem more dramatic.

Guest Post: Colorado Barn

Today’s post brings you the photography of Kyler Nixon in the form of a Colorado barn after the storm has passed.
