This was west of Phoenix near the town of Tonopah a few nights ago.

Took this in January, 2009 down in the Coorong of South Australia on a 40 deg C day. My rainbow bird! Won me a prize on the Australian Weather Channel. Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. Was beautiful.

I had the amazing opportunity to photograph the Perseid meteor shower from The Lighthouse in Palo Duro Canyon State Park. We had special permission to camp on the lighthouse to shoot the meteor shower. This was my personal favorite from the trip. This image is a stacked composite of fifteen images over a few hours.  Camera: Nikon D800 Lens: Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 AF lens Exposure: 15sec, f/4, ISO: 12800 (x15) Blended in Adobe Photoshop CS4
