Schoodic Point Nov 5, 2011, a set on Flickr.

A series of images shot betwen 6 and 11 PM November 5, 2011.

These were to try out Kodak E100G for moonlit landscape work. Ektachrome E100G is the last professional transparency film available from Kodak and to shoot film in todays age is to continue the legacy of film.

Look at the images and remember that this will perhaps not be possible sometime soon. Digital better? I'll let you form your own opinion.

The Sun at Winter Solstice

Some may wonder where the summer Milky Way has gone, or perhaps were in the sky the Sun is located around local noontime on the day of the Winter Solstice.

The Sun, plotted here in relative size and position to the starry sky. One imagines what a total solar eclipse would look like with the stunning Milky Way background.

Conversely, this is roughly where the Summer Solstice Full Moon is placed amongst the stars.

Background image was shot in 2008 from my dark sky in Sullivan, Maine
