Spring Astro In Sedona

Last week Chaz and myself made a visit down to Sedona, AZ in the wee hours of the morning for some sights of the Milky Way. I had a spot in mind I visited during a portrait shoot earlier in the year and after hiking a couple miles in the dark we found the tree I wanted to shoot. We passed several deer and more spiders than we could count but it ended up being worth the trek. Below are some images from the trip.

The tree I wanted to shoot actually ended up being one of the last shots I took.   


Along the trail.  



One of the spiders along the trail. It’s a giant crab spider and was the size of a half dollar of not bigger. They aren’t poisonous but will definitely hurt if you get bit. 

Looking forward to more shooting this season, and my workshop coming up in June at the Coconino Center for the Arts.
