I still wish I could have gotten a sharper result, but sometimes you have to make do with the equipment that you have on hand (a DSLR shooting at 250mm with a tripod). I was particularly taken by the prominence of Tycho in the finished picture.
Back in Ukiah, there’s this pond near by house. In truth, it’s not really a pond; it’s just a reservoir for the nearby vineyard. It’s been dry for most of the last few years, but this spring break when I returned I saw that it was incredibly full – almost overflowing! Such good news.
Back in Ukiah, and wow is it cold. At least the trees are beautiful.
There’s DRBA books in Princeton’s library! (Firestone, specifically…) So cool!
So many witty people at Princeton!
This is the latest satellite photo (courtesy of Google Earth) of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. It’s actually very clear – much better than the old blurry one where everything was just a mass of pixels. But of course, one has to get Google Earth 4 Beta in order to see the new imagery.
Update: Wrong! Actually, the new satellite images are also in Version 3 of Google Earth – no need to download the new version, though v.4 is quite nice.
