April 3

I’m back home after the incredible experience of working at Chaco for a whole month. Thanks to all the rangers, volunteers and staff for their help and advice. And thanks to the landscape and the great houses for being great subjects. I’ve done some rough editing of images during the past few weeks, which have been posted here. At some point I’ll gather all the good ones up and make a separate page on the website.  

Meanwhile, here’s some of the close-ups of plants and well-known constellations.

Orion dominated the south sky in March, with the bright stars Sirius (lower left), Procyon (upper left), orange Aldebaran (above plant) and The Pleiades (upper right).
