Loving God, I abandon myself into your hands.
Do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you.
Help me to be ready for all, to accept all.
Let only your will be done in me and in all your creatures.
I ask no more than this, O Lord.
Gracious God, into your hands I commend my life.
I give it to you with all the love of my heart,
For I love you Lord,
And so need to give myself,
To surrender myself into your hands
Without reserve and with complete confidence
For you are my Father.
〰️ Prayer of Charles de Foucauld
Photographer and #SonyArtisan@pedromcbride was one of the first photographers to go constellation chasing with the all-new #SonyAlpha a7R IV full-frame mirrorless camera. Pete shares, "The camera was just released and is amazing in low light and high contrast scenarios. The moon was hiding while I was chasing the Milky Way so it was a good time to try it out. Using the built-in intervalometer combined with this better sensor was a real treat for me particularly because I do a lot of nighttime photography and timelapses. Shooting something that can handle weather and straddle the line between medium format in a lightweight expedition worthy body is remarkable. It's small but can make print sizes way beyond its weight." | #SonyAlpha a7R IV | 22mm | f4 | 25 sec | ISO 12800 | #BeAlpha
Was out on a point along the north rim of the Grand Canyon with 4 workshop students when we saw lightning yesterday evening. I started counting and listened for thunder. Five seconds equals one mile. I didn't even reach 3 when the thunder roared, the cell had moved to within 1/2 mile of our position. We retreated back to the lodge and within minutes got this image of a bolt hitting Ova Point, 1/8th mile from where we had been standing.
