Sit down and bliss out

Turn down the lights, turn on the speakers, and watch some fabulous photography of the night sky. Here are the winning and honorable mention photos from the 5th International Earth and Sky Photo Contest, and they’re lovely.

A couple of things I noted:

1. There are three Oregon photos in here, one labeled and two not. (The two unlabeled shots are of Crater Lake and Yaquina Head Lighthouse.)

2. There are nine judges and only one of them is a woman? Really?

    Thanks for sharing that contest – fantastic! I love the work of Colorado photographer of Darrel Spangler. Enjoy this time-lapse of the Milky Way 🙂

      That was very nice! Though I have to admit what really caught my attention was the music. The photographer didn’t list which album or song it was, but modern technology is amazing — turn on Soundhound, listen for 15 seconds, and then get the option of playing it through Spotify on my home sound system. I’m listening to “Before Gas and TV” right now.

        He listed it on the YouTube page in the ‘no copyright infringement intended’ disclaimer 🙂 He lives in the Rocky Mountain National Park in a cabin. You should check out his Facebook page, Darrell E. Spangler, for some Rocky Mountain eye-candy!
