Day 265 – September 21, 2012



Day 263 – September 19, 2012

Sunset juggling / Oops.  I dropped one.

Day 262 – September 18, 2012

The moon is just a sliver tonight.  

Day 251 – September 7, 2012

I wanted to do a little night photography today, I really liked the way this one turned out.  A street lamp turned intense flame on the left, a plane on the right, and some sort of circular lens flare at the top.

Day 234 – August 21, 2012

We had a huge dust storm and actual storm last night.  We got some much needed rain and some very pretty lightning.  My husband and I went outside together to try to capture some lightning.  We caught a bunch of cool shots.  I really liked this one because of the colors.  This shot is straight out of the camera, I didn’t do anything to it in Photoshop.

Day 224 – August 11, 2012

I wanted to wait up late tonight to try to take a picture of a meteor in tonight’s Perseid Meteor Shower, but we are having strange weather that may not permit me taking  a photo of a meteor.  So I decided to create some in my office/bar.  These little light balls that I found at Michael’s did splendidly. 

Day 218 – August 5, 2012

For anyone who has been following me for a while, you probably recognize these twin palm trees.  They are part of the view from my back yard, and have been featured in a couple shots so far this year.  However, they have never been featured with such beautiful colors.  For some reason the sunset was super gorgeous tonight and this 20 second exposure proved it by capturing these amazing colors and super bright planet and/or star (not sure).

Day 213 – July 31, 2012

No matter how hard they try they can’t seem to catch anything the laser light produces.    

Day 200 – July 18, 2012

Happy 200th day to all us 366’s out there.  166 left to go :)  After a busy day today, I realized we had leftover sparklers from the 4th of July.  I told my husband to do a small light drawing for me.  The sky ate some of the spiral though. 

Day 187 – July 5, 2012

Last night while we were watching the fireworks, I realized that on the opposite side of the sky there was a full moon.  So I decided that tonight I would try to get a nice shot of the full moon.  There were even clouds left over from yesterday’s monsoon.  So with the help of my astrophotographer husband, we took this 1.3 second long exposure.
