Image Hill; fog

Milky Way from behind a tree

Last night Kath­leen sug­gest­ed I check out Image Hill for some astropho­tog­ra­phy. Since it was only five min­utes’ dri­ve from the farm, I checked it out.

I got about 25 min­utes’ worth of star trails (I set my timer for 30 min­utes but my cam­era bat­tery had oth­er ideas).

Then I snapped a few of the Milky Way (includ­ing the head­er pho­to and the one below—I can’t decide which one that I like better).

Then I came back to the farm and fell into bed about 1 AM.

This morn­ing: fog.

And now the fog has most­ly burned away, and it’s break­fast time.

Inter­est­ed in prints of my pho­tos? Let me know, and we can work some­thing out.
