new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

the belt of venus spans chalkida

the belt of venus spans chalkida
view on black

this is the first of two images i've edited from this evening. this first one is right after sunset, and the next one is a bit later, during the blue hour, which i'll post next.

this is a single exposure.

the belt of venus refers to the beautiful pink glow low on the horizon, created by earth's shadow in the atmosphere right after sunset, or right before sunrise.

i was lucky to have the company of anthony ayiomamitis and mr.G.

anthony's a skilled and brilliant astrophotographer. i'm always happy when he allows me to tag along on his outings, especially since he does all the thinking about the best spots to shoot the rising moon. this time, he took us to a lovely suspension bridge in chalkida, about an hour's drive north of athens, greece.

check out his astonishing work at his website.
