Asheville cityscape

My name is Kevin Adams and I’m having withdrawal. There, I admit it. It happens to me every year on April 2, which is the day after one of my favorite days of the year. Not that I need the excuse of April Fool’s Day to pull pranks, but it’s just a lot more fun Read more... you know you want to.

Saying Goodbye To Old Friends & Exploring New Frontiers

Orionid Meteor-Big Dipper-Venus-Blue Ridge Parkway-North Carolina

Note: I shot every image in this post from the same location. In this recent galactic post, I talked about exploring those “one of these days” places that we all drive by on the way to somewhere else.

Low Hanging Fruit – Time To Make Lemonade

Clouds and stars

In this post, I talk about how light pollution affects the night sky photos I shoot around my house. Here’s another example that I shot last night from my back porch right at the end of twilight. When the clouds are low like this, the various lights in the neighborhood illuminate them nicely. As I said Read more... you know you want to.
