The Gustav Gun

World War 2 was the most devastating war in human history.  If we forget about the events that ended the war thousands of miles away, Germany, Europe and the rest of the combatants used plenty of conventional weapons to wreck havoc on each other for nearly 6 years. The above shows Hitler and some generals … Continued

Eclipse!

Once in a lifetime.  Well, only if you think a total solar eclipse is the end of the world that is. This afternoon, starting at around 1:09pm and lasting until just after 4pm Eastern the sun will begin to be blotted out by the Moon.   It’s funny how that works, the moon is the … Continued

In 8K! Well, if you can even render 8K on your puny monitor that is.  This was taken up in Voyageurs National Park, way up in northern Minnesota, like, way up there on the border of Canada.  It’s not a place that’s easy to get to as much of the park consists of lakes and rivers, … Continued

Infrared Timelapse

0

I do love some Infrared photography.  There’s something awesome and other-worldly about it that is so enticing.  This time-lapse of Oregon is done completely in infrared.  I will say, some of the shots are pretty lost.  The nightscapes, and the meh mountainsides, those just look like filtered B&W.  There are a few nice sections of … Continued
