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.
