Forest Orbs in Smoke

The orbs outside the forest cabin started out shyly this evening.

Stately and dignified pines are fitting for a shining orb.

Smoke from the cabin chimney seemed to bring the orbs into the open, yet hiding behind a veil.

When the smoke clears and we see more orbs high above.

The privacy of a veil of smoke emboldens the orbs.

Although this could very well be chimney smoke, the cloud came in with a “whoosh” and the next photo was completely clear sky.

Becoming less shy.

More smoke to entice the orbs into revealing themselves.

I stood outside over my ankles in snow, slippers buried somewhere below, when I felt a tug to my left. One more orb beckoned to be photographed this evening.

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.
