One year ago today...

One year ago today I pointed my camera at a small piece of sky and got incredibly lucky. This 10 second clip has done a lot for me over the last year. It was featured by Time Magazine and National Geographic. I never thought I'd be able to say that! Cheers to exploding meteors!

Blood Moon Eclipse Over South Dakota

Clouds rolled in as I was rolling time lapses off multiple cameras during the eclipse the other night. I ended up packing my gear up and heading home, discouraged. I had expectations of what I was gonna capture, and I knew those expectations weren't going to be met. I finally looked at the pictures from Sunday. Although I didn't get the time lapse I had imagined, it turns out I did end up getting a decent shot of the moon. A good reminder to keep your ambitions high, and your expectations low and realistic.
