    Default My 2018 Collage



    This new year has started sadly for me with the passing of my wife of 50 years earlier this week. She was and still is the love of my life.

    Even though she was legally blind she could still see some details and she enjoyed the AP images I created when they were displayed on our large screen TV. So, in memory of my loving wife I present this summary of some of the 2018 images I was able to capture while caring for her. She was a "keeper" and I was fortunate to be able to spend all that time with her.



    Left to Right:
    Top Row: Veil complex; M13; M52 + Bubble + Lobster Claw Nebulae
    Middle Row: Heart Nebula; Horsehead + Flame Nebulae; California Nebula (starless)
    Bottom Row: M16 + M17 Nebulae; Wirtanen Comet; M4 + Sh 2_9

    Thanks for looking.

    Steve, I am sad to hear of your wife's passing. Your love of her has been quite evident from your past posts. I can't imagine how you must feel.

    That is a beautiful collage of excellent imagery.

    Shelley and I extend our sincerest condolences to you, my friend.
