Dirt Road

On Saturday night, my dad and I went out south of Florence to try to shoot the Horsehead and Flame nebulae (whoa, the words shoot, horsehead, and flame all in one sentence). Anyway, some high clouds rolled through, so it wasn't a great night for astrophotography, but I did get an interesting exposure of a saguaro at about 9:30. I shot this with my 50mm prime lens at f/1.8 for 161 seconds.

Oh, and the best part of the night...we found the Dirt Road.


Daybreak at Mercy Gilbert

I stopped to shoot this picture of Mercy Gilbert Hospital yesterday on my way to work. It was just before sunrise so the sky was just starting to glow. Nothing spectacular about this picture but I thought the lighting and colors were kind of cool...and it's the coolest looking hospital I've ever seen.
