Achenbach Saddle Juniper Under the Stars, Wayne Suggs

New Mexico Magazine has published the winners for their 14th Annual Photography Contest. If you are a dark sky enthusiast take a very, long look at Wayne Suggs’ stunning work in southern New Mexico. Not only did his entries take the Grand Prize but for serious stargazers, his night sky images are probably fascinating for an additional reason. According to my husband — the amateur astronomer/photographer in the family — these images could not have been captured a decade ago and fast forward to today, they could not be taken in most of the United States. It’s all about technology advances in digital photography melding with the amazing dark skies of southern New Mexico. Wayne gave me permission to post several of his night sky images on my blog. Enjoy! You can see more of Wayne Suggs’ work at his web site.

Congratulations to all the finalists.  Here’s a  link to slideshow of the 14th Annual New Mexico Magazine Photography Contest winners. //Leslie
