Miss me??

Been awhile since I’ve posted anything here but letting you all know I’m still around on occasion. Most of my photos have moved on to my instagram account, under phantom_vogel if any of you are instagrammers. Anyhow, here is a photo from my stay up north at my brother’s family cabin in Oakhurst Ca. This is a single image capture (brightened in lightroom) of the night sky out there, where little light pollution exists, so the milky way can clearly be viewed with the naked eye.

Some of the desert lands of California such as death valley, and here in Elizabeth lake, are currently experiencing a large quantity of wildflower blooms adding a vibrant burst of color to otherwise dry and desolate lands. However, places I was expecting to see wildflowers and poppies flourish, such as Lancaster Ca. and it’s poppy reserve, were a dry and sad let down when visited.

A bit hard to get a nice shot with so little light and only a 200mm lens with a 5.6f minimum but I thought this was a half decently acceptable shot of last night’s blood moon/super moon eclipse. Enjoy!

Since it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything here, I thought I’d leave a little night capture image to show you that i’m still around… albeit a bit reclusive from wordpress posting as my image upload space is peaking it’s limit. Hope you still enjoy the few images I still enigmatically leave behind!😉
