Altadena Lightning2252 viewsTaken 2/1/04
A great thunderstorm was blowing through my town. I went into the backyard and started taking time exposures with my Olympus Digital Camera. I was lucky to capture this nice bolt.

Looking Back2251 viewsThis was the view looking back from the opening just behind the cockpit. It was like sticking your head out of a convertible going 165 MPH.

Shoot The Moon2250 viewsThe final piece of Boeing's new generation of Delta IV Rocket Fleet lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base on June 27, 2006. The Delta IV M (Medium Plus) left the pad at 20:33 hrs Pacific Daylight Time and rose into the colorful twilight accented by the thin Waxing crescent Moon. What you see is the vapor trail left over from the Liquid Rocket Motor.

2197 viewsI was trying to re-create a photo that I have of my Father, Bob Westphal, in front of the nose of a B-17 in Europe during WWII. He was a Tech Sargent and repaired the radios in the planes. I hope to scan an image of that photo and place it here soon.

Sundown Dunes2184 viewsThe setting Sun was casting an orange hue on the Sand Dunes at Dumont. Dumont is located 30 miles North of Baker CA near the Southern tip of Death Valley. It was a windy day and the winds in the upper atmosphere were affecting the clouds. I m not sure I would classify this cloud as Lenticular but it was getting close. Taken 3/25/06.
