G50: 2018 Here I come!!!

.The Journey Continues…..

Hello everyone! I know it has been a long time since I have posted here but last year was a tough one. The last time I posted I was wrapping 2016 and an amazing trip across the Northern U.S. states. While the trip had its ups and downs, I would consider it a great success. However, there was some lagging effects from 2016 that carried over into the 2017 season and made my 2nd season chasing the Milky Way for my Galactic 50 project a very rough one.

Galactic50: the Update!

Before I give you an update on Galactic50: A photography project, I would like to say thank you to everyone who followed me this past summer. It was a long trip and your support was needed and very well appreciated. The amazing love everyone showed all my pictures gave me the motivation I needed to complete this epic journey. Now onto the update. In my last post, I had started my journey back east. I had multiple routes planned for the way home, to try and beat the weather.

My initial thought for Colorado was to simply see more of it and not worry about the Milky Way. And because of that I had planned on being there when I couldn’t shoot the because of the Moon. However, some luck was due on this trip

When I started my journey to photograph the Milky Way in all 50 states, I knew it was going to be hard. The drives have been long and the pace I set for myself has been brutal, but all that being said

Dark Skies of Iowa!

Iowa was another state that I wasn’t too concerned with in regards to dark skies. Most of the state sits in a Bortle Class 4 or less, obviously except for the cities. For the sake of the trip and less driving time I found a great spot at Honey Creek State Park campsite and was pleasantly surprised with the sky and the beauty I uncovered in Iowa!
