‘Twas a weird week for star photography. Despite lots of blue sky and weather forecasts that inspired grand plans and a whole lotta optimism, I still managed to get skunked twice. One time at the coast at around 2 am, as I sat in my car looking at two–TWO–weather apps telling me that I was experiencing clear conditions despite heavy rains pelting my roof. The other time was a more subtle skunking, as some insidious thin clouds on the southeastern horizon totally obscured the galactic center of the Milky Way, despite the other 98% of the sky being crystal clear. Such is star photography, I suppose. The good nights more than make up for the bad. Here’s one of my photos from the Oregon outback. This windmill is in surprisingly great shape despite the property around it falling apart. Internet high five, Aermotor Windmill Company! *Ben Coffman Photography* Prints/night sky workshops: bencoffmanphotography.com Facebook: http://ift.tt/1kw38uA G+: http://ift.tt/1jqRrZq Twitter: http://ift.tt/1kw38uE Flickr: http://ift.tt/1jqRrZs 500px: http://ift.tt/11mtmK7
