What a find is “Observing the Darkness”, which takes the Day for fantastic color, composition, and clarity; perfect self-title, too. Corey Templeton captured the Portland Observatory (in Maine, not Washington State) on Oct. 12, 2015, using Nikon D600 and 35mm f/1.4 lens. Vitals: f/3.2, ISO 800, 1/20 sec, 35mm.
Portland is Corey’s hometown, and he still lives there. He joined Flickr in January 2007, but for a real taste of the Down East go to his professional site (hey, order his 2016 calendar) and another he keeps: “Portland, Maine Daily Photo“. The 28 year-old shooter started taking pics 10 years ago.
