The quiet hour for me is the hour before sunrise when the air and water remain still and the atmosphere is peaceful. This image of the iconic Bonsai Rock in Lake Tahoe Nevada was taken at this serene time of day. It was a pleasure to be there enjoying the colorful sunrise. I hope you like it too. Thanks for looking and I appreciate all your support!

Winter Reflections - Hi, my name is Justin and I'm an astro photography addict. For real though I love the stillness and the quiet of night. I've never seen bonsai rock with the winter Milky Way bow over top of it. I managed to capture a lot of heavenly bodies in this shot. On the high res image you can see the Andromeda Galaxy, Jupiter, Sirius, Betelgeuse, the Pleiades and even comet love joy. The reflections on the water really help set the mood and feel of this image. I hope you enjoy…
