one of a few recent experiments.

positioned the moon just out of frame to create a lens flare.

 

can you spot the andromeda galaxy? hint: it's that tiny yellow smudge in the lower left. that (relatively) small smudge is 2.5 million light years away, which means its light passed through my lens after a 2.5 million year journey. that's right about when we figured out how to use rocks as tools. literally.

 

taken at 9000ft from the top of mammoth mountain, in the early, early morning of july 4th.
