Astrophotography

Capitol Reef, Utah is actually a desert (it receives barely 7 inch of rain per year) and has very little light pollution.  Great place for night photography. Not the best time of the year though; apparently May-September is better for some reason.

Also it was -11c degree at night so I was freezing my butt. Did two sessions; one between 9pm-10pm and the other between 1am-2am.

Corona Arch, Utah

February 18th, 2018

Corona Arch is right outside Moab, Utah but it is NOT located in Arches National Park.

A bit too crowded for my taste and way too windy on that day to bother with my nicer camera.

Capitol Reef, Utah

February 16th-17th, 2018
Short road trip to Capitol Reef, Utah with the Jeep and my brand new tires 🙂

Drove along the Cathedral Valley Road up to the Temple of the Moon and Temple of the Sun. Then I retraced  a few miles and cross over to the Hartnet Rd (a bit rough but lots of fun) to check out both Lower & Upper Cathedral Valley overlook. Finally I exited the area via the north back to I70…

Old Jameson Distillery, Dublin

Very interesting tour of the Old Jameson Distillery in Dublin Ireland.

After spending the whole day hiking – about 18 miles – through the city to take photos while eating only a light breakfast in the morning I confess that the whiskey tasting totally kicked my ass 🙂

I didn’t get to try the $6000 bottle of whiskey sadly…

Dublin, Ireland

Spent a few days in Dublin, Ireland. No “striking / Breathtaking” architecture compared to other European cities but very charming.

Yes, I had Guinness in Dublin, Ireland. Checked!
