Mojave Desert with Jeff using the Cosmic Disruptor to well...... disrupt the cosmos
As the night gets late in the summer, the Milky Way goes from it's horizontal position to a completely vertical stance. Walker Pass and it's groves of California Joshua tree's.
This old tree has served as a guide back to my vehicle on dozens of midnight adventures at Lake Isabella. Its always calming to look back over the horizon and see it standing there.

My backyard from last nights electrical storm. El Nino welcomes himself to Bakersfield!
My back yard. Just before the buckets of rain came crashing down last night! El Nino has arrived!
Lake Isabella. Hard to imagine these tree's have spent the last 20 years submerged. The amount of water it will take to return this lake to normal levels boggles the mind! This image marks the end of another Milky Way season as Scorpius sinks into the horizon to remain there until April. Oh the sadness!
Photography fills my need to express myself artistically. My love for this hobby goes far beyond what most would consider normal. I love the night sky and that comes with losing a lot of sleep. The payoff however is two fold. It is in the image no doubt, but it also comes from the solitude and magic that can only be had under a pitch black sky in the middle of the desert under a blanket of stars and two full camera batteries
