Nashville, IN (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: We had an amazing clear night, no moon rise until morning; I had to go for it. After putting the kids to bed I was off on the two hour drive to the closest thing to dark sky Indiana has to offer. (It's is not really very dark). I shot a couple hours in 20 degree cold on the shore of Yellowwood lake. I had to leave after the camera started to ice over. Good Times. :-) Thanks for looking

This is so beautiful--serene and kind of ghostly at the same time. Love it!

This is just so beautiful! I can't believe how dedicated you were to getting a good photo out of the situation. Only another photographer would understand - especially the part about staying a couple of hours in 20 degree weather! Thank you so much!
