Orbs at First Sight

Once again I’m on a quest for orbs. Easy enough to do if you simply step outside the cabin door, point your camera skyward and take a flash photo.

Solo Orb

However, once I’ve taken that first simple photo, the orbs go into hiding. Leaving one behind as a sort of scout to figure out what this invasion of flash photography was all about.

Distant Orb is Not the Moon

So, with the orbs playing peek-a-boo, it’s time to just enjoy pointing the camera into the darkness, and see what trees will become illuminated in the night.

Cascading Orbs

Ah, the orbs are back. Perhaps having their picture taken wasn’t so alarming after all.

Smoke and Orbs

Always a pretty sight to find orbs drifting through the fireplace smoke.

I’ll be questing for orbs again tonight, might as well since the dog needs a walk before bedtime. For those of you who are new to orbs, or would like a reminder as to what the great scientific minds have been speculating as to the nature of orbs, here’s a link to an earlier post:



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.
