Overall Winner of the 2018 Astronomy Photographer of the Year | Full Story >
This year started with a huge change. After 25 years in Western Washington we said good-bye and moved to Hawaii. Sadly, Oahu suffers from awful light pollution, and makes night shooting a constant challenge. A trip to the “Big Island” was a welcome change. This year I was able to see active lava lake bubbling from Kilauea main crater. In this image the lava glow trails into the stars and reminds me just how amazing a place this is.
