About Me

My photo

Anything outdoors!  Tornadoes, eagles, blizzards, or auroras.  If it is in the sky, running through the woods or swimming in the water, I'm there!

August 13 sunrise shelf

The "golden hour" concept for photography also applies to the morning. One in a great while a decent shelf makes an appearance with clear skies to the east with the rising sun lighting up the front. August 13th was one of those mornings.

The rest of the day didn't go a hoped. I dinged around too long at home to make it down to the Owatonna / Rochester area for the real show and pooched myself on the big bow later in the afternoon near home by going south 25 miles instead of going 11 north. Then, after shooting 119 frames trying to get a Perseid meteor and seeing more than a half dozen over the course of about 40 minutes, not one in a picture. Such is life sometimes...
