Super Moon Blushes Over Indigo Lake

I remember seeing my first “Blood Moon” unexpectedly while handing out burritos from the drive thru window while I was working perhaps 15 years ago. A total eclipse also took my friends and I by surprise on the rim of the Grand Canyon as we were taking a walk in June 1992. “Umm…why’s it so dark? I could have sworn we just had a full moon.” I love the Laotian traditional explanation for an eclipse as well…the moon was carried off on the back of a turtle. This is my first attempt to photograph an eclipse…I fascinated friends almost a year ago by punching a hole in a piece of paper to project a solar eclipse onto the wall. “Is that for real?” They had to take my word for it because no one wanted to stare into the sun. The last comparable lunar eclipse was in 1982.

Memorial Day Explosion At Sartell Paper Mill

On May 28, an explosion at the Verso paper mill in Sartell, Minnesota claimed one life, injured five others, and resulted in the biggest fire in Sartell’s history.  The blast concusion was experienced by many around town, and it was reported that the thick black smoke was visible from as far away as Foley. Crystal Blunt captured this image less than half an hour after the initial blast, and the fire continued to burn for the following two days. The following images where captured as smoke still trickled into the air above the mill. The Radio Pilot News Service of Flight Flash took to the sky today for this aerial perspective. A solemn flight today with thoughts for the man who lost his life in this tragedy.  For additional coverage, link to .

Melting Mississippi

Patches of open water were widening on the river today as temperatures in St.Cloud went into the high 50’s. View a shot overlooking the city as seen on WJON.

Balmy January Skies

    I sent the plane up for a low-res trip above the ranch neighborhood last weekend. This is the centrecam aircraft with the camera looking down and backwards today. Although it can mount on skis, it’s still currently on wheel landing gear. In this configuration the propellor is very low to the ground and you can hear it sucking a few small rocks into the propellor and launching at least one of them right through the tailfin. The river in view is the Missippi. It was around 18 degrees during the flight and upon landing I discovered the Prius needed a jumpstart, so I had to hoof it a ways back home to get help. Anyone else out there have trouble with needing to jumpstart their Prius a lot? [youtube uxxT0z5n_hQ]
