While down in the Hanksville area with @erictheastrojunkie I got a chance to shoot out near one of the buttes while the Milky Way rose overhead. I think this is perhaps the darkest place I have been in the USA which meant being able to see more details in the Milky Way core than I ever have before!
On a different note, I've recently found myself wanting to back-up and share my photos more often. The idea of losing images that remind me of such amazing times makes me feel a bit queasy. One of the ways I'm now backing-up my photos is using a cloud service called @bublup (Bublup.com). It allows me to keep track of photos from different trips in folders that I can then share with other people. I like it because it's not just a cloud service, but makes the uploading of photos really interactive (and looks good) so that sharing them feels more like telling a story than a plain boring folder. If anyone would like to also try a premium version of Bublup the nice people over there have given me a promo code (UtahAstro) so that you also get 100 GB free storage for a year! Try it out and let me know what you think!
