Dreaming of the Stars

Today’s Photo: Dreaming of the Stars

This past evening, I walked outside and looked up.  It instantly took me back to my childhood and watching the stars.  It is a sad thing when you realize that a childhood dream has become an impossibility.  Thankfully, other dreams have filled that space, so all is not lost.  A high pressure system had moved through during the day and the “seeing” was amazing.  Being this close to one of the largest cities in the world, there are not that many possibilities to see the stars so clear.  This shot is actually from the morning.  If it had been in the evening, the stars would have been washed out.  I was proud of this one – 500mm hand held.

Today’s Photo: Stars Over the Clinch River

I was out late several weeks ago and fortunately had a clear sky for some shooting of the stars.  I was near the Clinch River, just west of Knoxville and found a small park right on the shore.  I had been out earlier taking photos and ran my battery nearly out.  This was one of the last shots I got before it went dead.  This was a 60 second exposure using an intervalometer.
