Artist's Description

THIS IS A SPOT ON TOP OF A MOUNTAIN RANGE THAT IS CLOSE TO MY HOUSE. CLOSE ENOUGH THAT I HAVE BEEN UP HERE MANY MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS. I EVEN WENT HERE THE VERY FIRST TIME I CUT HIGH SCHOOL AND WAS OLD ENOUGH TO DRIVE A CAR. MY DAD’S MECHANIC PROVIDED THE CAR. THIS MOUNTAIN RANGE IS ON THE SOUTHERN END OF THE CASCADE MOUNTAIN RANGE JUST BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS TURN INTO FOOT HILLS AND DISPERSE AROUND THE BAY AREA. FROM THE TOP WHERE THESE TOWERS ARE, I CAN SEE SAN FRANSISCO’S GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE NORTH TOWER, MOST OF SAN PABLO AND SUISUN BAYS, SACRAMENTO, WOODLAND, DAVIS, RIO VISTA, STOCKTON VACAVILLE OF COURSE AND ON SOME DAYS EVEN DUNIGAN ON HIGHWAY 5 WAY NORTH OF VACAVILLE. WHEN I LOOK AT THIS PHOTO WITH IT’S ANTENNI STANDING PROUDLY IN FRONT OF THE STARS AND IT MAKES ME THINK, “AND THE RADIO SIGNAL SAYS!???”. WHAT IS BEING SENT TO WHERE AND WHO. DOES AN ALIEN LIFE SPECIES HEAR WHAT WE BROADCAST? THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN WITH A CANON EOS 620 35MM BODY, A CANON 50MM LENS, KODAK 100ASA FILM AND THE SHUTTER WAS LOCKED OPEN WITH A REMOTE CABLE SHUTTER RELEASE FOR A TIMED EXPOSURE OF ABOUT 20 MINUTES. I AM STILL HOPING TO GET A SHOT ON A MOTOR MOUNT SO THAT I CAN SEE THE INDIVIDUAL MASSES OF STARS AND NOT JUST LINES IN THE SKY. WHEN SHOOTING THIS TYPE OF IMAGE ON FLIM, YOU NEVER QUITE KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO GET UNTIL YOU HAVE OR YOU DEVELOPE THE FILM AND PRINT SOME IMAGES ON PAPER. WITH DIGITAL NOW, I CAN CHECK IF I LIKE THE IMAGE OR NOT AND IF I DON’T I CAN DELETE IT AND START OVER. BUT, IN ORDER FOR ME TO DO THIS TYPE OF SHOT IN DIGITAL, FIRST I NEED TO GET A REMOTE SHUTTER RELEASE FOR MY CANON DIGITAL REBEL 300-D. THEN I NEED A NEWER LARGER TRIPOD, I SOLD MY BOGEN SOME TIME BACK TO PAY A BILL AND NOW I WISH I STILL HAD IT FOR THE SUPPORT IT COULD GIVE TO THE MEADE TELESCOPE AND CAMERA.
