I'm back!

Whew, I'm back. I had a great weekend of rafting and hanging out/getting to know a bunch of guys. Oh, and I got to take some pictures too! We were in Kernville, which is about 3 hours north of L.A. I could not believe how clear the skies were up there. I have never seen the Milky Way so distinctly. One guy brought a for real telescope and I got to see some of Jupiter's moons! Yes, that Jupiter. That was awesome.

I thought I'd start the picture extravaganza with this star trail one. It looks like the middle of the day, but it's actually about 11 p.m. The combination of long exposure (around 25 minutes) and a bright moon give it that daytime feel.

More to come!
