The hill

Looking east down the hill.

Looking west up the hill.

Tomorrow I go to the polls to vote for the county commissioner in my district.  The new one is bound to do a better job than what we have had recently, while he is at it maybe he can widen the road over this blind hill.  I just hope we the voters make the right decision.

See, this is not a pot hole that might ruin a tire or throw your alignment out, this will injure or kill somebody someday.  In normal weather it’s at best two lanes when the snow and ice is on it’s one lane and very scary when you meet up with another vehicle on it.

Do the right thing and fix it please new Mr. County Commissioner.



I got out last night Aug. 14th, I saw quite a few Perseids but I had given up on photographing any so I was taking long exposure shots of the Polaris (north star) region and got a lucky shot of one anyhow.  I gotta say it’s nice living in the country… but even I have light pollution. That huge bright glow to the lower left is the Nowata Metro Area.

The Perseid in this shot is in the upper left on the very edge of the frame.



My first Perseid Shot of the year taken on Aug. 13th.  This shot is color corrected with GIMP to highlight the star field which includes parts of the Constellation Pegasus including the Andromeda Galaxy to the right of the meteor.



Was out trying to get set up to shoot meteors and accidentally took this.  neet!
