Made me think of you - 14ers.com night sky photographers. Jury is still out for me on this guys work, but interesting none the less.



Light painting is pretty hard, so I respect that stuff a ton. It is also very fun to try.

Amazing shots vonmackle! thanks for 'lighting' up my night.

"It's called CRAZY. And somehow, when you are bent over your poles, staring at your boots- heart heaving and trying not to cough your lung onto a rock= you look up...and you are looking down over all those beautiful mountains....and you wouldn't want to be anywhere else."

"For all the richness of normal, everyday life, it is good sometimes to trespass high in the sky, and live with uncommon intensity, experiencing something that gets close to the sublime."
