Milky Way–8-4-2019

When I come home, clear nights are for going out and checking out the lovely light show that is our universe.

I did drag my wife with me for some of it and she sat in the car.  Smile – but she came!

I did a lot of fiddling with lights and exposure and trying to get more than trees as my foreground.  I think some worked, some didn’t, but its all a learning process!

I am super happy with some of them.  Some I wish they’d turned out better, but its all in the fun of it and the adventure!

Milkyway–07-07-2019

Being home means dark nights and not having to go to far for milkyway pics.  I wanted to head up to the mountain overlook, 1 – I don’t have an ATV anymore and 2 – the milkyway would have been out of sight from that vantage point.

See those bright yellow streaks?  Those are fireflies!  Yes I got photobombed by fireflies.  Which was, sort of cool!

A lot of shooting stars this time around, as well as the “red” streaks which I suspect are satellites.  It was also hellva windy which made the trees move.  I went back and forth between 20, 25 and 30 second shots.

Jupiter was also out and about last night.  These were all taken within less than a mile from home.

I then plopped myself in a potato field and took the last batch of pics.  I was getting slightly tired and cold!  But a great night over all, fireflies and all!

08-02-2018–Former church of Notre-Dame du Mont-Carmel

I finally hiked (1000 feet) over to the Musee that was a former church up my road.  I’ve taken many pictures of the place before and do like getting some inside pics ever few years.

Then I moved upstairs to get a panoramic view of the church.

An Impromptu dash around the valley for some sunset shots.

My back yard.  Yes, that’s mine.  Simple, yet gorgeous.

I went over to the Grand Isle Boat Landing for some pictures of the river.

While some were watching fireworks, I was watching the sunset.

Taken behind the former Notre Dame Church.  Then along the road and behind another neighbors house.  It’s a great spot for sunsets!

There is a little cabin and a pond back there and the reflections were stellar!

Another night and another great sunset – and a few up close pics of those lovely purple flowers that litter our back yard and from the previous evenings moon rising.

05-30-2018–Sunsets and Church

I happen to be fortunate enough to live just down the street from a great old church that boasts the BEST Angels on its twin towers.

I also happen to get to see some of the best sunsets Northern Maine has to offer from my back yard.
