I just came across this fun little online tool. You can practice all your manual photography from the comforts of your own computer chair now! Pretty soon we won’t ever need to leave home…
Online SLR Camera Simulator!
Have a good time playing your new SLR camera video game. Too bad a vast majority of the action is going on outside
This is a pretty cool site a friend just shared with me. Thought I’d pass it along quickly for the astros, photogs, and other sky watchers. It’s called Photopic Sky Survey—a very high-resolution interactive photographic visualization tool for the Milky Way Galaxy produced by Nick Risinger.

I had a chance to get out, get some exercise, and check out a place I’ve been interested in geologically for some time. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any prep time to look into the specifics before hitting the road.

I managed to hike Hanging Rock Trail to the top, and then made it down to Lower Cascade Falls in the northern parcel of the park, located in Danbury, North Carolina north of Winston-Salem. I’ll study up on the geologic setting responsible for some of the structures and geomorphology before reporting back [and returning to Hanging Rock]. That should be interesting. In the mean time, please enjoy a couple of digital photographs I took at the aforementioned points of interest:
