Thanks to the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society again, I headed back up into the mountains to Mueller State Park on Saturday night.
My brother Doug died last. He was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer late in 2017.
Please excuse the language, but #fuckcancer. Do what you can to help fight cancer. Raise funds, donate, or make sure you get the appropriate checkups at the appropriate times.
I didn’t do much shooting on Friday, except for about 30 minutes along Laurel River Road and Tremont Road with the new 80mm macro lens that Fuji kind enough to lend me.
Thursday was a whirlwind day with lots of activity at the summit. As I was left my room to join an early morning field session, I looked up and saw stars, so I instead jumped in my car and headed up to foothills parkway to shoot some star-to-sunrise timelapse.
Wednesday – the first full day of the conference. After breakfast, I headed into Cades Cove with a large group of attendees, and Chas Glatzer as our instructor. If you’re wondering what it’s like to go on a field outing that’s part of a photography workshop, this post will give you some idea.
Monday morning brought the first real sunshine I’d seen since Friday, and the warmer temperatures that came with it were welcome.
Yesterday’s 42 and heavy rain are this morning’s 24 and heavy snow.
I hit the road well before sunrise, on my way to the mountains.
I haven’t done a good job of posting pictures from my last few trips in Michigan, so here we go. First up are pictures from the end of February/early March, followed by pictures from the week of Aly’s 12th birthday.
