Best Evening View Of Mercury – Feb. 13, 2013

Mercury - BlogThe 2nd “Must See Stargazing Event of 2013” is between February 2 and 23.  It’s the best evening view of Mercury.     My husband captured it on February 13th.  It’s that little red dot in the middle. 


New Project – 13 Stargazing Events in 2013

My husband has come up with a new project for us this year.  As some of you may remember from following my 366 Project last year, my husband is obsessed with the night sky.  He found this list on Facebook and decided to shoot all the events:

13 Events

So we started this project on January 21, with The Jupiter/Moon Conjunction.  We’re collaborating, my husband is taking the pictures and I’m doing all the ‘behind the scenes’ work.

Day 366 – December 31, 2012

Day 366

This has been an amazing photographic journey for me.  I’m so glad I stuck with it.  Just as I suspected, it has changed my style of shooting.  I recommend every photographer take the time and do a year long project at least once in their life.  I’m taking a break in 2013 from the everyday shooting, but stick around – my husband just got orders to move us from Arizona to Delaware in April.  Life will be changing and so will my work.  Thanks for following me on this year long project :)

Day 340 – December 5, 2012

Day 340

It’s probably too soon for another heart bokeh shot, but I don’t care.  I love this new little trick I’ve discovered. 

(this shot came straight from the camera)

Day 325 – November 20, 2012

The road and mountains bounced as we headed to California.

Day 304 – October 30, 2012

The moon is full and bright and this was an accidental shot.  But I ended up liking it.  I love when I fall in love with an accidental shot.

Day 296 – October 22, 2012

It’s my husband birthday, and to celebrate his 25th year I named a star for my adorable astrophotographer.  At night we tried to find it in the sky.  We got the general location down, but we couldn’t really see it.  It was too bright in the backyard.  But we know it’s up there – it’s just southeast of the bottom of the small cluster of stars, in the top left of the photo. 

Day 272 – September 28, 2012

Fun with sparklers …. in September.  

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.
