Lightning over the Grand Canyon

March 24th, 2016

Lightning over the Grand Canyon. I took this photo on the north rim of the Grand Canyon near Bright Angel Point looking south-east across the canyon.

A large thunderstorm rolled through and I was shooting 10-30 second exposures.

Out of this Whirl

March 14th, 2016

The graceful, winding arms of the majestic spiral galaxy M51 (NGC 5194) appear like a grand spiral staircase sweeping through space. They are actually long lanes of stars and gas laced with dust.

This sharpest-ever image of the Whirlpool Galaxy, taken in January 2005 with the Advanced Camera for Surveys aboard NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, illustrates a spiral galaxy's grand design, from its curving spiral arms, where young stars reside, to its yellowish central core, a home of older stars. The galaxy is nicknamed the Whirlpool because of its swirling structure.

The Whirlpool's most striking feature is its two curving arms, a hallmark of so-called grand-design spiral galaxies. Many spiral galaxies possess numerous, loosely shaped arms which make their spiral structure less pronounced. These arms serve an important purpose in spiral galaxies. They are star-formation factories, compressing hydrogen gas and creating clusters of new stars. In the Whirlpool, the assembly line begins with the dark clouds of gas on the inner edge, then moves to bright pink star-forming regions, and ends with the brilliant blue star clusters along the outer edge.

Some astronomers believe that the Whirlpool's arms are so prominent because of the effects of a close encounter with NGC 5195, the small, yellowish galaxy at the outermost tip of one of the Whirlpool's arms. At first glance, the compact galaxy appears to be tugging on the arm. Hubble's clear view, however, shows that NGC 5195 is passing behind the Whirlpool. The small galaxy has been gliding past the Whirlpool for hundreds of millions of years.

As NGC 5195 drifts by, its gravitational muscle pumps up waves within the Whirlpool's pancake-shaped disk. The waves are like ripples in a pond generated when a rock is thrown in the water. When the waves pass through orbiting gas clouds within the disk, they squeeze the gaseous material along each arm's inner edge. The dark dusty material looks like gathering storm clouds. These dense clouds collapse, creating a wake of star birth, as seen in the bright pink star-forming regions. The largest stars eventually sweep away the dusty cocoons with a torrent of radiation, hurricane-like stellar winds, and shock waves from supernova blasts. Bright blue star clusters emerge from the mayhem, illuminating the Whirlpool's arms like city streetlights.

The Whirlpool is one of astronomy's galactic darlings. Located 31 million light-years away in the constellation Canes Venatici (the Hunting Dogs), the Whirlpool's beautiful face-on view and closeness to Earth allow astronomers to study a classic spiral galaxy's structure and star-forming processes.

Dream Big!

I took this shot while visiting San Diego for Comic Con 2011. I could not have had a more perfect night to take this cityscape. The clouds were perfect and the night was clear... can't ask for more.

Morraine Lake

May 22nd, 2014

Morraine Lake, AB, Canada is the starting point of the Larch Valley hike. Hoping for better weather, a friend and I set out for a light day in the mountains. The clouds happened to offer a nice light for this shot.

Shot from a very common spot to photograph. I believe this to be a very different mood and angle than the norm, though.

Editing with HDRSoft Photomatix and Adobe Lightroom.

Baishi Mountain is located in Taiyuan county, west region of China's Hebei province. Its main ridge line is over 7,000 meters long and the highest peak is 2,096 meters high. The fog at high altitudes make the mountain a fairyland on Earth.
