Seeing Iceland from above, and from angles one cannot hike to, is both inspiring and liberating! One begins to understand how things are put together – and how little we matter in a geological sense.

Watch our calendar for opportunities to see the world with a drone!

Dark of the Moon

Post 2 – The Three Sisters volcanoes and surrounding lava landscape make a great location to photograph the Milky Way. In Oregon, astronomical twilight ended at 10:45pm.

Although the timing was right, the composition was not. The Galactic Center was to the left of the North Sister and most of the Milky Way shot out of the frame. An hour later, the Milky Way lined up just right and 2 meteors entered the scene. It was amazing to watch how fast the position changes when you have a mountain peak as a reference point.

Dark of the Moon

During the dark of the moon in Oregon, one day you can go to the Cascade Mountains for the Milky Way over the 3 Sisters (next post). Then you can go the the Pacific Coast to see the secrets that are revealed when the ocean pulls back at extreme low tides. Here are some colorful tidepool creatures we enjoyed photographing.

Not all that is revealed is alive. Sometimes the receding water makes abstract designs in the sand.

All are fun to photograph.

New Places, New Friends

One of my favorite new places in Southern Tanzania is the Ruaha River and National Park. The staff and lodge and scenery are awesome. But there was more!

Hippos were always in the river in front of us and liked to make noises in the night. Footprints were found off the deck the next morning.

Earth Month

As April winds down, I’m thinking how happy I was to see so many Earth Month and Earth Day events by individuals, organizations, businesses…

Let’s remember that every month needs the same attention. We still need to do our best to care for the planet, to keep it healthy and beautiful.
