Sunday’s launch of the Delta IV heavy rocket. i’m pretty satisfied with the actual exposure this time around... not so much on the way my camera was positioned though. Next time you pesky rocket ship 🚀 I’m pretty excited to see what kinds of new information the Parker Solar Probe will tell us about our Sun. Maybe we’ll find out that it’s actually made of gummy bears😯. •

Ayer @assumpta lluch, mi mujer, me enseñó un poema de Pessoa que hablaba de naturaleza...
Hoy cuando pensaba con que escrito acompañar esta fotografía, me ha venido a la cabeza la última parte de este bello poema que os comparto. Me encanta! Gràcies Sunta! "El recuerdo es una traición a la Naturaleza,
porque la Naturaleza de ayer ya no es Naturaleza.
Lo que fue ya no es nada, y recordar es no ver"
Mostrar que hemos estado no sirve de nada. Cuidémosla simplemente para que pase desapercibida... Respetar es el guión de nuestra vida.
Imagina.... planifica y sueña con @photopills!

We arrived at Racetrack Playa by rented 4x4 after being shaken, rocked and jostled for 27 miles on one of the worst rutted, rocky, back country roads I’ve ever experienced … It only took us slightly less then 3 hours to get there. When we arrived, I took the first few hours to search for my ‘favorite’ rocks and compositions. I used my GPS and ‘tagged’ the exact location of interesting rocks I thought would work best for sunset, sunrise and the Milky Way. For the Milky Way imagery, it turned out to be critical, as in the daytime you think you can find the rock again, but trust me, if you decide to stay to photograph the Milky Way, just tag them in a GPS. You’ll be happy you did. I was only about 5 feet away from this rock before being able to see it. Mostly because you don’t want to use a flashlight out on the Playa at night, as others are mostly likely there with you capturing some night imagery. And that white light creates a major issue for others capturing their imagery. Use a red light and a GPS.
I loved this ‘sailing rock’ and its wonderful trail along the Racetrack Playa for photographing the Milky Way. The rock had some very interesting features, but the most important reason was because I knew where the Milky Way was going to rise and be in the night sky and the trail from the rock would lead the viewers eyes towards the background of the scene and then up into the sky and Milky Way … And then back again to the rock.
Most folks might think it’s crazy to stand in the middle of no where on a dark, moonless night, photographing a rock. But, for me, I checked off a long time bucket list location. And I enjoyed every second … even the bumpy drive.
