And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by…

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by…

This weekend, I had a chance to tour the The Columbus Foundation’s replicas of the Niña and Pinta on one of its last days in port in Chattanooga, TN.

I took several photos, but I made a wallpaper quality version of one.  This is the rigging and top sail of the Pinta at the docks.

"And all I ask for is a tall ship and a star to steer her by..."

“And all I ask for is a tall ship and a star to steer her by…”

I also took this 360 degree panorama of the area including the TN Aquarium.

They are worth seeing.  You can find out more about them on the website below.

Time-lapse Video Of A Lightning Storm (July 20, 2012)

This is a time-lapse of a lightning storm that I took back in July.  The video consists of a series of images taken as a thunderstorm passed overhead.  All pictures are taken with ISO 200, f/3.5, and an exposure time of 15 seconds. The audio is “Ritual Of Earth” by The Neon Judgement. I lucked out and found it in the audio swap library provided on youtube.

ISS Flyover August 28, 2012

These pictures were taken during a flyover of the International Space Station on August 28, 2012.  The one lesson learned from this set is that next time I want to take a series and stack them together for a picture that has the space station crossing the whole sky.
