You can actually see a constellation in the shot of the campsite! The Pinyon Myn Valley photo is cool too. How'd you get those in such low light?

Wasn't that sunset on the ride home last Sunday killer? It looked like there were vapor trails or something out on the horizon. I was in awe every time it came into view on I-8.

Very cool shots, Ollie, thanks for posting them up.

I just used a tripod. The Pinyon shots were taken setting the camera on DaveK's roof rack on his H2. My camera pretty much does the rest. It's a Nikon D60. I'm really liking it so far. :D

These are great.

I really wished I had a tripod, so I went out yesterday and got one! Going to see what kind of night shots I can get at Surf n Turf now.

That wasn't a meteor - that was Sunnygrill jumping a dune...
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear really bright, until they start talking
