    That image is just incredible, Jim; once in a lifetime. What a gift, perfect timing, and beautifully processed. I want to know when that's going for sale; I'm buying one.

    And when that trip gets set up -- I'm there.

    Jim, that was the blast coming out of my exhaust pipe before I got my engine repaired the next day. Oh, and a fabulous image you made, too.

    wow! this is incredible! i really like the wide open spaces in the first one, though i can imagine how much better it would be printed big rather than at web sizes. the storm clouds right next to the stars looks amazing. did you get probed by the aliens?

    Thanks so much for those kind words Pepper.

    Ever since I took that photo I noticed that I keep looking up a lot. Oh, and I stopped wearing baseball hats and switched to Aluminum hats. Not sure why exactly...
