Winter Milky Way with Winter Circle (Capella, Aldebaran, Rigel, Sirius, Procyon, and Castor) Jupiter, and the Pleiades.
Recently I was lucky enough to have my Winter Highlights (pictured above) run in the Huffington Post UK “Image of the Week” – where my photo was next to one of Kate Middleton! – and it was voted as the Fan Favorite!
This same picture ran on Space.Com under the category “Amazing Night Sky Photos” for the month of March. Big Thank You to both for sharing.
If all this sounds familiar but in abbreviated fashion its because these were Lost Blogs in the Great Website Crash of 2013. Thank God, that the rest of the page was recovered by my host: Blue Host. Thank You!
Thanks to Stellar friend, Kim Klodnicki, I now have a Instagram page. Please check it out and if you are an Instagram user, send a friend request!

Stellar Tuesday: 3/5/13
Winter Triangle over Summit County, Colorado
This weeks Stellar Tuesday image brings us the Winter Triangle which includes Betelgeuse and both Dog Stars: Procyon and Sirius. This shot was made possible by the low angled light of the Full Moon illuminating the snow covered trees in dramatic fashion. Also visible in this this shot: Orion with his dogs.
Sirius and Orion over the Gore Range: Summit County, Colorado
Originally photographed in the Spring of 2012 this image of Sirius and Orion over the Gore Range is one my favorites. The glow from behind the mountains is coming from the Eagle / Vail area. The light reflecting down from the clouds then scattered by the snow helped to bring out foreground detail along with some post processing in Lightroom 4.0 .
Come down to the Denver Photo Art Gallery (833 Santa Fe – Denver, CO) from 6 – 9+PM where I will be hosting my Photo Gallery. BYOB, come chat, take in the gallery including several other amazing photographers (many of whom will also be there), or just plain get out of the house!

Winter Lights: Sirius, Orion, Aldebaran, Jupiter, Pleiades – White River National Forest
Astronomy Photo of the Day (APOD) is undoubtedly one of the Holy Grails for Astrophotographers to have their photo shared. This particular blog entry is primarily being used as a hosting space for my submission of Winter Lights: Sirius, Orion, Aldebaran, Jupiter, Pleiades – White River National Forest in Summit County, Colorado.

In other news, while doing some research for my SEO class I came across a mirror post in Scientific American from the NASA’s Space.Com article which ran on the Winter Solstice – December 21, 2012.

Earlier this month before the First Friday event at the Denver Photo Art Gallery, I met with Lesya of 303 Magazine for a short interview on my photography and my residency at the Gallery. Thank You for your time Lesya the interview was a lot of fun and the article came out great. I couldn’t be any happier: 303magazine.com in-focus-daniel-mcvey-will-make-you-believe-in-magic
In other news I have been working on a redesign of the webpage so there may be some bumps along the way. Since I am a construction worker to pay my bills I have some down time in Winter. I am filling some of that time on a WordPress 2.0 Class ( I hope I can hang as I am a selftaught WordPresser with a theme) and an SEO class offered by Colorado Mountain College but online. The long term goal is to overcome some of the limitations of the website currently and to provide a more free flowing – less confusing (when it comes to ordering) Page.
