The thing about star photography is...

Before one gets all excited about taking star shots, one should look at a moon phase calendar.

The Tygh Valley in Oregon was bathed in the impressive silver light Friday night of a full moon, and again on Saturday, with a smattering of clouds, too. Which made star shots impossible. However, the area was nonetheless stunning, amazing, beautiful and very relaxing, as the clan of Leith siblings, their spouses and canine children staked out two sites in Beavertail campground. We did little more than eat, sleep, wrangle dogs, drink beer, tend to a fire, take short walks with or without dogs, and laugh.

A great camping trip.
