Almost Spring




… but not quite! A look at the calendar says that spring is only 5 days away. But yesterday’s snow puts that into question!

The decision to try photographing the Geminids was a last-minute decision, as the forecast had been for partly cloudy skies. But late in the afternoon, the skies were still clear and […]

Meteors, No … Clouds, Yes




On my way home from teaching last night (I’m currently in the middle of my 5-week Digital SLR class at the Cass Career Center), I was very pleased to see clear skies and stars all around. I had been planning on photographing the peak of the Orionid meteor shower (last night), if the weather would […]
