Another fun night with the Denver Night Photo Walk Community, aka the Denver Nightcrawlers. We started out at Sloan’s Lake Park hoping for a nice sunset with the skyline in the distance and maybe a reflection or two. Then a little playing with glow-sticks and steel wool for interesting light effects. While the majority headed off to photograph the nearby neighborhood and a few libations, a couple of us headed north to try for some light trails into Denver. Oh, and throw in one from a rain out at Coors Field, Cubs in town!

The super moon that occurred mid November, 2016 is often referred to as the Beaver Moon. According to the Farmers Almanac:
This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.
This is the closest the moon has come to earth in over 70 years, according to NASA and won’t happen again until 2034. We took advantage of fairly clear skies to shoot it both from Red Rocks Amphitheater and a couple locations near downtown Denver.

First rise, incredible size and color.
Just the moon.

Milky Way Night
First trip out to 11 Mile Reservoir/Lake George, Co to capture some Milky Way. A clear cold night with a bit of humidity didn’t preclude the capture of some interesting images. While waiting for the Milky Way to rise, again we played with star trails.

Images captured in and around Arches National Park, Moab, UT over Memorial Day Weekend. Most shooting was done with my Sony a77v and a Rokinkon 14mm/2.8 wide angle lens. Some post processing using Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC.
