VLA – Very Large Array.
Radio Telescopes in New Mexico scan the heavens.
The Milky Way Galaxy over the Dinosaur National Monument.
The Monument straddles the east border of Utah and the west border of Colorado.
On August 21st, a solar eclipse will cross the country. Living in New Jersey, unfortunately there won’t be a total eclipse. Instead there will be a partial one, similar to the image above. I made that photograph in May 1994 using a telephoto lens. I should have had my telescope, but didn’t want to drag it to work, where I was at the time. The reflections were caused by UV filter which I forgot to remove.
So, wherever you are on August 21st, head outside, and with proper eye protection, look skyward and watch the eclipse.

Iceland is another planet. An alien world. Visiting the country one can imagine standing on Io, Europa and Callisto – 3 moons of Jupiter.
Io is a volcanic moon. Europa is an ice planet. And Callisto has an lifeless dark surface, not unlike the image above. Life on an alien world.
While driving on Rte 1, aka “The Ring Road”,
and somewhere between Hof and Fjallsarlon Glacial Lagoon in Iceland on the east coast,
I saw these mountains and clouds. My question is, how long before I return?
Nighttime at the Delicate Arch in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah.
Many folks know about the El Capitan in Yosemite National Park in California,
but…..there’s another one in Arizona. It’s on Rte 163 between Kayenta, AZ and Monument Valley.
Have no idea which one was named first, but both are beautiful.
The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco covered in fog.
Photograph made sometime in the morning on a visit to
San Francisco several years ago.
The waterfalls in my hometown – Paterson, New Jersey.
“The Falls”, as it is known to the city’s inhabitants, is a source of pride and history.
The city has a rich history – it was America’s first industrial city.
It is home to many famous people, including a favorite comedian of mine, Lou Costello
(of Abbott and Costello fame).
Locomotive engines were built here that were world renown. One of the first submarines was
launched from the Passaic River. New York City Theater plays would open in Paterson first.
It was known as “Silk City” (before the advent of artificial fibers).
The list goes on and on.
