King County Metro’s City Panorama Project


One of my recent photographs, the ‘North Star in Eastern Washington’ was selected by King County Metro as one of the photos that will adorn Seattle-area bus shelters later this year. It will be printed at 92.25″ x 23.5″ and will be installed some time over the next few months!

The photo itself was taken in the summer of 2012 on a night we spent camped out near the town of Easton during the Perseid meteor showers. It’s a 15 minute long exposure of the night sky centered on Polaris (North Star)

Because of the Earth’s rotation, it appears as if all the stars are revolving around the North Star and because of the 15 minute exposure, it looks like the stars are traveling in an arc.
