Kasey Sez “Oh Hai”

Kasey Sez “Oh Hai”

Kasey-says-oh-haiIt’s been a while since a Kasey photo, so here’s one for all of her fans.

The Dark Side of the Moon

The Dark Side of the Moon

darkside-of-the-moonHere’s a long exposure photo of tonight’s moon, the bright half is what you see with the naked eye, but it’s all over exposed. The dark side is visible however, and a nimbus of light appears around the moon from the over exposure. You can also see some star tracks off to the right side. The second photo is taken with a 1/125 shutter speed.

A Walk Through the Leaves

A Walk Through the Leaves

We took Kasey and Chewey to Shawnee Mission Park today and they loved it. They met some new friends, including four Aussies. One of them was a double merle which most often results in birth defects, you will see her in the video. She got rescued by two kind ladies but is partially blind and deaf. For people who don’t know this: please do not interbreed two Australian Shepherds who are both merles either blue or red, it usually results in defects from the merle genes.

Update: Youtube disabled the audio track for reasons of copyright even though I am linking ELP’s Amazon page. Ah well, I guess they have to do that.

October Moon Nearing Full

October Moon Nearing Full

Here’s a picture of tonight’s beautiful moon, it’s nearing full. The sky was crystal clear, but the wind from across the Western plains was quite stiff so this is not as clear as it could be even though I was shooting from a tripod.

Late September Moon

A took a few photos of the moon tonight, one was taken at the full 300mm focus of the lens at 200 ISO setting and 1/25 shutter speed. The other was taken at 70 mm with a plain auto setting to allow a long exposure. In the photo on the left you can see the hazy clouds that I had to focus through causing the light to diffuse and bloom.

August Moon Wanes

Tonight’s moon, higher in the sky so not as orangy-red as the last photo. It’s also on the wane now.

Kasey at the Fence

Kasey typically barks when people come by, generally not in a mean tone, more of a “please come over here and play” tone. The exception is when the garbage truck comes. I think she worships it and all of the interesting smells it brings with it.

Hurricane Gulch Alaska

Hurricane Gulch Alaska

Hurricane-Gulch-AlaskaHere’s a photo of Hurricane Gulch Alaska, it’s not the greatest quality since¬† it was taken through the window of a moving train. I had to get this because on our many spur of the moment roadtrips to Anchorage in my youth it was traditional to always stop midway across the highway bridge to take a leak. The name comes from the powerful winds that blow through constantly, so you had to pick the right side or you would end up with a mess. Click on the thumbnail to see the larger version.
