I wish I was hiking back to the Solstice Snake again this year, but unfortunately I just couldn’t make it out there this time. Since I can’t be there, here’s a photo from last year’s solstice.
This is a photo I took a few years back that I decided to reprocess recently. I never really liked the colors of this photo but I did like the light, so I decided to convert it to black and white and I really like it much better now. It’s an amazing ruin and I really need to get back and take some new photos of it!
Earlier this year I licensed a few of my photos to be used in this TV show. I finally got word that it will be airing this Sunday (June 17) on H2 (History 2) at 10:00pm ET. It looks like it will be on here in Grand Junction at 8pm (mountain time). Unfortunately I do not get the H2 channel, but they are supposed to be sending me a copy of the show on DVD.
Keep an eye out for these images if you watch it.
Shiprock, New Mexico
May 20, 2012
After spending Saturday exploring North Coyote Buttes and then Sunday morning with a short hike to Buckskin Gulch from Wire Pass I drove over to Shiprock in New Mexico so that I could watch and photograph the Annular Solar Eclipse. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget.
I assembled this collage from some of the many photos of the eclipse I took in different stages. Look closely and you can even see a few sunspots.
Here’s a photo I quickly processed this morning from the Annular Solar Eclipse that happened yesterday evening. The sun was almost completely blocked by our moon except for a small outer ring. It was very cool to watch, and I’m glad I stayed down near Shiprock, New Mexico to experience it. Of course, that meant I didn’t get home until 2am this morning and now I need to get to work. When I have some time, I will post more photos from this annular solar eclipse.
