Sometimes No Orbs


Orbs don’t show up in every photo, but what you do get can be just as awe inspiring.

 Seeing a tree by flash can be a revelation.

The tree trunks so starkly boney in the night.

I wouldn’t have discovered this harsh beauty if I wasn’t looking for orbs.

I walk under this tree several times a day and never really notice it’s many tendrils.

This one I do notice because it always catches the light so beautifully.

But wait, there is an orb in here after all. Can you find them?

For those of you who are new to this blog or would like to revisit the explanation as to what orbs are, this might be of help:


About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.

  1. Good to hear from you, Susan, and thanks for following my blog! My passion for orbs began with the opening of the Bisbee Royale when the band, Sergio Mendoza y la Orkestra played a splendid performance to an enthusiastic crowd. I had never gotten orbs in my photos before, and now they seem to be appearing every evening. I’ll keep showing scenes of life in Bisbee to remind you how wonderful it is here. We look forward to your return.
