America the Beautiful at Night
Famous modern day historian Ken Burns says "America's greatest gift to
itself" is the National Parks with all of their beauty.
As an amateur astronomer & landscape astrophotographer Wally Pacholka
has made it his mission to showcase the exceptional beauty of the
night sky over these famous America parks and landmarks. Continuing his series
"America the Beautiful at Night" he will present stunning night
photographs of his recent night hiking tours of Hawaii, Easter Island and the Pacific
Northwest Volcanic Parks.
In addition to his stunning images of the night sky he will be sharing
how to take photos that get published and how to negotiate effectively
with publishers on price.
