-Caterpillar 🐛- Just being a dark sky tourist. This was shot 2 hours away from where I live, at Cedar Island. Despite the light pollution from the docks, I had about an hour and a half of clear, dark skies before the moon showed up. This photo also features a welcome photobomb by a meteor. I implore you guys to visit a dark sky area at least once in your life! They’re quickly disappearing, and I find it sad that there are people who live and die and have never seen the center of our Milky Way Galaxy with their own eyes.

وقتی یکساعت و نیم در دشتهای مملو از شقایق دراز بکشی و چرخش آرام فلک رو در سکوت شب ببینی و ثانیه به ثانیه ش رو روی سنسور دوربینت ثبت کنی تا شاید چند ده سال دیگه وقتی برمیگردی و به زندگیت و جوونیت و روزهایی که رفته نیم نگاهی میندازی لبخندی بزنی و بگی .چه روزای خوبی رو گذروندم و چقدر کیف کردم تو اون لحظات و اون روزها و حتی یک درصد هم احساس افسوس نکنم و چه چیزی لذتبخش تر از زندگی کردن در لحظه و لذت بردن از زمانیه که توش داریم زندگی میکنیم .
تایملپس این عکس رو در اسلاید بعدی گذاشتم روی موسیقی متن فیلم "لیست شیندلر" اثر جان ویلیامز کبیر. این لحظات بی تکرار تقدیم به دوستان عزیز

The station is so large it couldn't be launched all at once and had to be built piecemeal with large sections added continually by Space Shuttle flights. 🌍

Later this month, we will have New Moon and perfect dark skies for Milky Way! Hopefully the weather is on our side. Who else is excited to spend some nights under the Milky Way?! Taken 6.29.19

Foreground: ISO 5000 f/2.8 60 s
Star gazing... A recent shot from Kimmeridge. This was on a night when the conversation in a Swanage pub (I was driving) inspired a decision to swap the following days ungodly dawn alarm call for an 11pm dash across Purbeck chasing the Milky Way... Its an incredibly beautiful sky in such a dark part of the country but it’s also a little eerie standing there with your camera by yourself at 1am! 📷 #genuinebritain#milkywaychasers #dramatic_seascapes
50 years since Apollo 11!!
Here’s the super blood wolf moon I caught this year.
Unless you’re living under a rock I’m sure you’ve already heard that’s it’s the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing today. For me, I don’t look at this occasion as a time to be proud at the past, but as a time to be ashamed about the progress we have made since. To rub salt in the wound NASA always comes out with a new statement saying “we’re going back in (current date)+10 years!” To get everyone excited, but deep down we all know it is not going to happen. So here’s an image to help remind you of a time where we used to dream and explore. A time when we used to go to places no man had gone before.
The moon clock.
Often left behind as a tourist attraction the hundred years old town clock was built in 1918, was funded by city merchants. It was designed by Italian specialists and has served as a point of reference for the city and shopping center. Interesting in this monument is the presence of ornamentation in patriotic frames and rosettes, of which are distinguished: the portraiture of Skanderbeg overlooking the front of the building and the two-headed eagle with a view of the east.
Another one from my first Milky Way. A Night Under the perfect Stars in Joshua Tree National Park #milkywaychasers#milkyway #joshuatree#themilkyway
Not long after waking up this morning I started to feel some anxiety build in my body. I know it stems from a few different places as we have been on this journey of the unknown for more than 10 months now. We are both wanting and needing to stop and begin our ‘lives’. Be apart of a community. Create. Build. And have our own space. A space that’s not attached to wheels.
I then start looking at old images and wonder which ones stand out to me. Places that make me feel fuzzy inside as I revisit photos. And the ones that make me smile, are the ones that show us having adventures. Truly living. Glimpses of a moment of joy or lightheartedness captured. No significant place. It’s the moments where we are acting like kids. Or Climbing rocks. Hiking with our pup. Feeling connected. Driving in a national park and being in awe by the beauty. A good cup of coffee. Catching sunsets. Watching our cats explore a new area.
It’s making memories!
You take the pressure away and be in the now, and everything can feel right and magical. It’s your attitude and frame of mind in the process.
We live in a world where there is so much focus on what’s next. Or what one is doing with their life. And I feel that pressure now as so many elements that can ground you are in question. But what also grounds me is enjoying the journey and the unknown. So today I am just going to count my lucky stars that I am here. And my ‘here’ doesn’t know what’s next. But I will figure it out. But I will not let it take me away from me being in the moment. I don’t want the worry and stress of the unknown to keep me from living in the now. I acknowledge that it does stress me out and that makes sense.
But we are in control of making things happen and making change. And that should empower me, not the other way around! So I am holding grace for space to make those life changes. And I must believe I can.
And wishing upon a star for some extra guidance and support while we forge ahead isn’t a bad idea either.

First post on my new account:
Last year I made a pact with myself to get out and shoot the #MilkyWay more. I had only gone out a few times that summer and was pretty disappointed in myself considering where I live and the beautiful places I have access to. This shot is from a couple weeks ago high in the #colorado #mountains. I was exploring a new area with a dear friend and when we returned from ‘the spot’ I saw a #composition flash through my head. I moved the van up a dozen feet and stood in the meadow of melting snow for a few shots. Hope you enjoy! Stay tuned for more from this trip and many others!
