France: Paulinet: Milky Way & Perseids

by on Jul.26, 2014, under Night ★, Photography, Smörgåsbord

These images were captured the same night as the previous post… the Milky Way was incredibly bright.  In many of the images you will also notice streaks of light, these are not airplanes, but are in fact meteors whizzing past earth at speeds of 208,800 km/h (129,700 mph) from the annual Perseid Meteor Shower!

The greenish light radiating in the foreground is from a covered swimming pool.

That last image in the gallery (star tail) was a 1,397 second exposure (f 5.6 / ISO 1000)!

France: Ambialet

by on Apr.16, 2014, under Day, Photography, Smörgåsbord

Afternoon trip to the picturesque French village of Ambialet, which is located right in the middle of a neat little bend in the Tarn river (map).

The final photos were taken in one of the many tunnels along the D172 road that you need to take to get to Ambialet… and while some are not even lit (!!), most are barely wide enough for two cars… even our little rental (Nissan Note).

Vesper Sports Bar

by on Mar.08, 2014, under Smörgåsbord

I opened my very own sports bar last month, which is why my photography has taken a turn to the quiet side…

Either way, if you find yourself in the neighborhood, stop by for a drink!

Located just over an hour north east of Toulouse, in the Tarn region of France… this would be my home for some work/play for 2 weeks.

No, I haven’t fallen off the planet… as some of you may know I have left Shanghai for good and am now living up in the Philippine highlands.  Just in time for Super Typhoon Yolanda… what an experience that was.

But yeah, just a quick note that I’m back online and in the business of polishing images… so much goodness coming here soon… a teaser to start (taken in France):
