Blue Duck Station Nightime Sky

This is my first attempt at doing astro photography. Everyone else in the Stray bus group is off partying, and Jai and myself were geeking out with his 14mm lens. What a great lens, and man is it ever fun doing these long esposures.

The shack in this image is the room I stayed in for two nights at Blue Duck Station. It was the honnymoon suite, yet it had 4 beds. So I guess they are prepaired for all kinds of wedding parties to stay the night there.

Image was processed in Lightroom, and a big nasty piece of dust was removed using Photoshop.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
