You seldom see a truly clear night during August in the mountains of Austria because of the nightly storms that roll in. I was thrilled to see the Milky Way over the Große Zunig (9,108 feet) last summer in Matrei in Osttirol. I felt the same way earlier in the spring, sitting on the breakwater in Point Judith, Rhode Island. A few clouds made the sky interesting, as a little wave spray hit the breakwater.
When I learned that the Conanicut Island Art Association was hosting the Sky Above - Earth Below exhibit, I thought about a third image that would fit this theme. Half Dome in winter followed the end of the draught in California and was made during a short lull in a week of unrelenting rain.
The Opening Reception for Sky Above - Earth Below will be held at the Jamestown (RI) Town Hall on Thursday, April 5, 2018 from 5 to 7pm.
I would be delighted if you stopped by to say hello and see these prints.
See ya then,
