This is a self portrait from Fonts Point in the Anza Borrego State Park. The view is amazing up there during the day and at night. This image is a touch noisier then my other Astro images, it was about 95 degrees when I shot this photo and my cameras sensor was not doing well. Even with stacking this shot could not be completely noise free.

Hope you guys enjoy this one!

The Ouray Ice Park will open FRIDAY DECEMBER 26!!!

Ouray Ice Park

December 24 conditions update: The Ouray Ice Park will open FRIDAY DECEMBER 26!!! The opening will be limited to the South half of the Park (from the Upper Bridge to South Park). The North end is getting there but still needs a little more love before it is ready for prime time. We do have a few pockets of resistance on the South end and those spots will be marked as closed. Please enjoy what we do have open and respect local closures. Our ice farmers will continue to work extremely hard, including over the Christmas holiday to get the Park ready for a great season.

Enjoy the ice and a big thanks to everyone who continues to support the Ouray Ice Park.

Moonset over Pikes Peak

Moonset over Pikes Peak (12/23/2014).

This photo has some technical flaws (windy, ISO too high) but the placement of the moon was perfect. I got home kind of late from work and saw the moon setting over Pikes Peak. I grabbed the zoom lens and took this photo out from Falcon. Single exposure.

UPDATE: Since there seems to be some confusion about this… This is not a full moon photo and yes it was taken tonight. The bright part of the moon in this photo is what can easily be seen with your eyes. The rest is still there but the camera brings it out better.

Feel free to like, share, or comment.
Thank you for looking and for liking Lars Leber Photography!
