Multi-stacked pic taken at Hurferano/Lily Lake trailhead with Blanca Peak in the center. Set the timer on my camera, placed it on the tripod, focus and went to sleep.

I’m a pilot and I have always thought nighttime arial mountain photography would be an interesting project. Would need some really good conditions. Maybe as I get better at flying I’ll reach out to this group for some photographers haha.

Anyone have any shots of the aurora, particularly within the northern continental U.S. (I know, rare to see them that far south most years)? But with entering a solar maximum, was thinking we might get better chances of seeing them now. I've seen recent geomagnetic activity with K values of 4/5 recently.
Maybe places like Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, NY, new England, etc...

A recent backpacking trip to Lost Creek. A little bit of moon light on the rock formation. And some city lights on the horizon from Denver & Colorado Springs. I couldn't get all the people to turn off their porch lights. lol

Great pictures all the way around. I haven't seen Skyline Arch for years. Beautiful. I used to be obsessed with the Moab area landscape. I remember camping with my young boys out in the open in a precarious crack in the rocks. A sandstorm came up and pelted the tar out of us. With eyes closed I had to feel my way around and lower them down to get into a vehicle. We woke up with red sand in every part of our body and dried blood all over us.

I was hooked. My boys still love going there. This was back in 95, we just went and got a camping spot up North there. I think now you need a lawyer to do that.
"Quicker than I can tell it, my hands failed to hold, my feet slipped, and down I went with almost an arrow’s rapidity. An eternity of thought, of life, of death, wife, and home concentrated on my mind in those two seconds. Fortunately for me, I threw my right arm around a projecting boulder which stood above the icy plain some two or three feet." Rev. Elijah Lamb
