For over a dozen years I have gone to a place in Southern New Hampshire, in August and photographed the night. Beginning around 10pm the stars appeared: thousands of them- a sight so enchanting I stand there in silent awe. These are long exposures, 45 minutes to an hour and strange things happen: mists come and cover the lens, stars streak and moons rise and fall. No ambient light intrudes other than my flashlight or the occasional house lights. More recently I’ve gone to the Southwest where the night sky is too brilliant to imagine. Amoung the great rocks and giant saguaros, another kind of magic takes hold and once more, my handheld flash lights shape the image.
