Later I’ll post some nighttime vistas from Blue Diamond, NV. Until then the brief story of getting there.
My Cousin Michael, his son Max and I headed out into the desert for some dark sky astrophotography. This past winter we drove west into some Bureau of Land Management property out in the sticks. No people live there but it is populated by burros. Last time we heard them. This time we saw them!
As we pulled the car to the side of the road a small herd of burros began to approach. We’re city boys. We have no idea whether these asses were going to be nice or be… well… be asses! We got back into the car.
I planned on bringing a tripod to this expedition. Unfortunately it never made it out of the hotel room. With the burros around it would have gone unused. Luckily I had a little clamp which let me mount my camera on the car window!
Here are my two burro/ass shots. I apologize for the fuzziness. This was all done in the dark.
