These first two are the Moon rising over downtown San Diego in early August of this year, taken from Harbor Island.
Here are few shots of the Milky Way, taken in the mountains of eastern San Diego County. It's actually somewhat late in the year for Milky Way pictures in this part of the world; we'll have to wait for Spring to go at this again.
I think it's nice to have something in foreground on these types of pictures. There are some great old trees up there that make for nice foreground subjects.
Sometimes we bring the foreground subject with us; in this case my Nissan Xterra. I've replaced the interior dome lamps with red LEDs, they make for a nice warm glow in the picture, and save your night vision when out on trips like this.
Sometimes I get into the picture myself - sort of.
