    This is my favorite night photo because of being able to hike up to the location and enjoy the beauty and quietness. The sheer magnitude of our surroundings was remarkable. It was a wonderful experience!! Thanks Brad! On a side note: My favorite day photo is of the field full of Indian Paintbrush with Mt Shasta in the background. The hummingbirds were feeding, then at dusk, some much larger birds were flying super close to us.

    Mt. Rainier reflected on Reflection Lake, WA. It was fortunate that the rising moon started shedding the area nicely.

    “There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” Backpacking and hiking to places where other have not visited was always a dream but thanks to Brad, Doug and Thomas i am able to fulfill my dreams. My interest has turned into a commitment and this is the result. This image is special to me as this was taken by over coming both mental and physical challenges and the forces of nature (Thunderstorms).

    With clouds mostly lifting, I took my brother who was visiting from North Carolina to check out Vermont's night sky. Using methods and tools Brad shared for finding a Milky Way shot, I took him to Baker Pond in Brookfield. This is a pano of I believe 8 shots.

    I chose this as my favorite because it represents my favorite trip of the year (to the Canary Island of La Palma) and found it to be an incredible place for astrophotography from the darkness of the sky and the fact that you can climb above most clouds.

    This shot of the Milky Way at Two Jack Lake in Alberta, Canada is one of my favorite shots from 2018. I was able to use all the components of Nightscape Photography I’ve learned from Brad Goldpaint to plan and capture this shot. While I originally planned to have the Milky Way coming straight out of Mt. Rundle, I waited until Mars became visible, since there was very little wind allowing for a nice reflection.

    This image of the Milk Way gliding over Crater Lake has been a two-year challenge! That’s why it’s my favorite night image! For the past two summers, wildfires hampered my plans. Finally in June, I thought it would work. I drove up to Crater Lake with a friend, spent two days enjoying the majesty of Crater Lake; however, at night, the fog rolled in and spoiled our efforts.

    This was a challenging year - Not as much flexibility in getting away to shoot, acquired some ancient slow glass and married them to fast new bodies to over come their limitations, weather, when I did get away, was not so cooperative. Met a great many new photographer friends, the company was awesome. I am still enamored with the possibilities fish-eyes provide shooting the night sky. This capture has all this year was - shooting with new photographers, old lens, fisheye, weather and air glow! Looking forward to the next year to push what these lenses and bodies can do! Hope to see some of the alum, out there.
