This Weekend, In Taos

I made this 15 second exposure shooting straight up off Julie’s picnic table (since I didn’t pack a tripod).  The clouds are lit by nearby Taos.  And of course, that’s the Milky Way beyond.  Way beyond.

These poi spinners were captured in the span of ONE second by a GoPro Hero3+ shooting 30 frames per second. I composited the frames into a single composition…

My first attempts at photography while flying…

There’ s an old flying maxim:

1) Aviate

2) Navigate

3) Communicate

It is probably no accident that photography is not on the list!
