If the contest had allowed streetlights, then I wouldn't have cropped out a group of them just to the left. They look like the eyeballs blinking in the dark at the end of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

This is a single exposure. I was on the beach shooting the lunar eclipse with my pitiful equipment, meant only for terrestrial shots. The moon was about to slip behind the fog bank, when a friendly dog came over for a scratch, and bumped my tripod in the process. first I cursed, then I decided to keep it--this photo, not the dog. The dog went home with her owner, both unaware that I had a canine photo assistant that morning.

Overhead in the Adirondacks


I spent 3 nights shooting the sky and this was the best I got. There was an astounding amount of light in the sky to the point that shots over the lake looked like it was daylight. Gonna try some different ideas this year.

Thanks to all for the delicious examples you have provided! This contest has been timely for me, because I'm just starting to THINK about dipping my toes into more serious astrophotography.

An Experiment in Urban Star Trails

Using a graduated density filter to tone down the lights on the bridge, I was able to capture star trails over San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. 11 1/2 minutes, single exposure.

Nighttime on Stone Tower in the Allegheny Mts.


Funny story - shortly after i began shooting atop the tower, 3 car loads of people just showed up. I was afraid they were going to be partiers and I'd be awash in booze soaked idiots who were going to ruin my shots. They turned out to be a group from some summer camp looking through a large telescope one of them had. Turned out to be a pretty pleasant group after all...

At least I'm in before linguine, orionid and ravnostic (among others) blow me out of the water...
