Quiet Night Of Orbs

Blue and Yellow Orbs

It was a quiet evening for orbs in the woods. At about 9:30 p.m. the dog and I went out to see if we could find something of interest on a moonless night.

Distant Orbs

The orbs are there, but in silent repose.

Orbs in Branches

But still, when you find a wonder, are we to complain that it’s not wonderful enough?

Power line Orb

When questing orbs that remain elusive, they can often be found hovering over power lines.

Orb Cluster

Who and what are orbs? Are they the will-o-wisps of yore? They do seem to have the sentience ascribed to them by Dr. Klaus Heinemann, a Stanford University professor of physics. All I know is that they are a mystery of pure delight.


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.
