Underneath my California stars

The dark dark skies of Yosemite were perfect for practicing our star photography, and so on a few frosty nights, we ventured out to the open meadows with my camera and a tripod, our hearts racing as we tried not to think too hard about mountain lions, coyotes, and bears.

Dark, dark nights and strange landscapes in Joshua Tree.  I have a lot of work to do on my starscape photography, but it was so exhilarating to drive around the desert at night, snapping long exposures and listen to the coyotes howl.
