Every cloud has a silver lining when you’re shooting with a black and white camera. I have a fondness for this old picture. It’s one of the first I took with a digital camera back in the waning days of the last millenium (or the first of the new one, I can’t remember exactly). It was a digital camera optimized for astro-photography… a tiny little chip, but very light sensitive. I attached a camera lens, put it on a tripod and pointed it to a spot in the sky where a weekend of clouds was giving way to clear skies beyond. Not a star was visible to the eye. But the camera found them… lots of them and a lovely little star cluster in the constellation Scorpius too.
Here’s hoping the clouds part in your neighborhood so the clear autumn skies can show their treasures.
