Thousands gathered in Times Square on the night that Mars Curiosity safely landed on Mars after a 352-million mile, 8.5 month journey.  Seeing so many people gathered together to be a part of the moment on such a late Sunday night was just incredible to witness. People were captivated by the images being displayed on the Toshiba screen and listened closely to the audio broadcast over their phones, sharing headphones as necessary.  It will always be one of my most memorable nights in NYC.

 Chongqing, China had some of the worst air pollution I’ve ever experienced, but it sure made for some incredible twilight cityscape light. I purposefully didn’t remove any of the dust spots from this image to show how dirty my camera’s sensor became after only a day of shooting.

 In the middle of the Nevada desert, 10,000 billboard-sized mirrors track the desert sun and focus its rays onto the top of a 640ft tower filled with molten salt. The salt heats to extreme temperatures, produces steam, and generates electricity day and night for the state of Nevada.  Driving along the endless expanse of nothingness in the Nevada desert, I could see this tower gleaming like a beacon for miles and looking like some sort of advanced alien communication device.
