Trials and Tribulations of Astrophotography Time Lapse

Okay, I know you all want to know how last night’s astrophotography went.  (head hanging)  Not as well as I planned.  This time, I forgot to switch to manual focus.  The rig ran all night.  I could even see the auto-focus light as I was walking up to it.  I only go about 10 minutes before it got too dark to auto focus.

I am taking a few days off from attempting the astrophotography.  The moon is too bright right now and the New moon will be in a couple of weeks.

Today’s Photo:  The Cold Flag

This year was one of the best for snow in the North Georgia Mountains since I was much younger.  At least it seemed that way.  I was in heaven.  I love the cold.  I hope that this winter will be as exciting and snow bound as last.  Maybe it can be even colder and snowier.

I could not resist the contrast of the flag against the white snowy background.  I enjoyed taking photos of the snow greatly this year.  So, don’t miss this other one of my little Winter Wonderland.  And while you are looking around, don’t miss last Thursday’s Daily Photo.

    I love this shot. It makes me think that George Washington is fixing to cross the Delaware River. Or could it be a commentary that our country is falling on hard times? Trying to tell us something Daryl? 🙂

    • Tim, you guys are so good at making me think. I would love to sit and talk sometime. When I was in college, I had an English professor that would take the most mundane things which appeared straight forward and read into them. I always had the attitude that “it is what it is” and nothing more. Now you have just made me think that there may be more to this photo than “it is what it is”. Maybe you just have to look close to home for hope.
