I don't know why I never think to do one of these star shots on a 70 degree night with no wind. It was about 24 degrees when I shot this, with about a 50 MPH wind. I couldn't even put my hands in my pockets because I had to hang onto the tripod so it wouldn't blow over.

This is from Yavapai Point, a couple nights ago. Shot with my 28mm f1.8 lens, shot wide open at f1.8 (which is the only f-stop that works on that defective lens) The canyon is lit by the light of the crescent moon.

The really bright one is Jupiter. I actually got into an argument here with a guy that was telling his family that Jupiter must be the North Star, because it is the brightest star in the sky. Moron! I don't know where people get the idea that the North Star is the brightest thing in the sky. The North Star is one of the dimmest stars in the sky. It is almost impossible to find the North Star. I can never find it. Not to mention the fact that Jupiter was in the EAST!!!

I went to the Valley of Fire this afternoon. It was appropriately named today. It was about 107 degrees here today. Yay! Luckily the motorhome repairs are done, and I'm almost ready to head as far from here as I can get. After the Valley of Fire, I headed south and checked out some more of the Lake Mead area. Was lucky to have a full moon tonight and caught this shot of the moon rising over Lake Mead.

This was last nights fireworks display in Ouray, Colorado. It was actually one of the lamest fireworks shows I have ever seen. Also the first time I have ever seen a fireworks display with no finale. The show just stopped, and everyone just stood there for about 20 minutes wondering... Is that it?

I'd like to thank the spectators for helping make this shot. The two fireworks on the left were actually sent up by the crowd of spectators. Thanks! They look better than the actual show.

This was shot standing on a rock, in the middle of a river.

I shot this one a couple nights ago, on my way back from Ouray. This lake is a little south of Silverton, Colorado. This was about an hour after the sun had set. Full moon was just rising behind these mountains, and just peeking out through the clouds.

This was about my 10th attempt to shoot the Golden Gate Bridge. I love fog. But… This has been ridiculous! I shot this a couple nights ago, and it was about the first time I could actually see the bridge.

It's hard to believe that most of the country is broiling right now. It's even harder to believe that it could be this cold along the coast of California, in JULY! When I shot this, I was wearing two sweat shirts, but I had to take one of them off to hold in front of the camera to shield it from the wind. It was blowing so hard that the camera was shaking on the tripod and the photos were coming out blurry.

It's been funny walking around San Francisco. Most of the tourists are wearing 'San Francisco' sweatshirts. Why? Not because they really wanted a souvenir of San Francisco. But, because… They were FREEZING and had to buy a sweatshirt!
