I'd been wanting to try astrophotography for a while; a weekend spent in eastern Washington was my first good opportunity. Goldendale is a tiny town with very little light pollution, and an observatory that I'd visited a few years ago. We stayed in a cabin about 15 minutes from then town, and it turned out to be a terrific setting.

Leading up to the weekend, I spent a good bit of time on the website Lonely Speck, reading up on lenses, camera settings, and the need to buy a headlamp (good advice, it turned out).

The first night there, I was excited to finally get to try things out but by then had forgotten a few of the finer points — details like how to focus in the dark. I did get a couple of decent shots, but I was in a hurry, not to mention a tired from the four hour drive from Seattle.

The second night (shown here), I think I got it right.

Out of the blue at the end of a quiet afternoon on our first day in Florence, the air suddenly started whistling and the shutters were banging. I ran around our apartment closing all the windows and making sure the laundry drying out on the balcony wouldn't end up in the streets three floors below. It was like that for an hour or so, until it calmed down again just as suddenly, and the sun broke through the clouds and lit up the sky for a few last minutes.
