The larue.photo 2018 12-Month Fine Art Wall Calendar is here! Moonlit landscapes, star trails, lightning storms.
2018 Fine Art Wall Calendar
Full Moons Marked with 100% Illumination Time
Full moons are indicated with a circle offset within the day square, depending on whether 100% illumination occurs morning or evening. The exact time of 100% illumination displayed next to it in UTC-7 for viewing in Phoenix. This makes it easier to know which evening has the brightest moon, and thus, which night to go moon chasing.
Meteor Shower Peaks
Also marked in this Fine Art Wall Calendar are the peak nights of meteor showers. A meteoroid is a small piece of rock or dust in space. When a meteoroid enters the earths atmosphere, we call it a meteor. The meteor encounters friction from the Earths atmosphere, and burns to ash. We see this event from the ground and call them “shooting stars.” A meteor shower occurs when the Earth passes through an area with a higher density of interstellar dust than than it does in other area of its orbit. There are several such patches in the Earth’s orbit and so we have several meteor showers each year. Most meteor shows will last for multiple consecutive nights. A shooting star symbol marks the space between two days, indicating the peak night and optimal viewing.

larue.photo is my photographic work. I am passionate about creating high-quality photographic works of art and capture these fine art landscapes using the light of the moon, the stars and occasionally a lightning bolt or two.
I use photography as a tool to capture the world at an unfamiliar time scale, and present it differently than we are used to seeing. My goal is to ignite in my viewers the sense of wonder felt when experiencing the world for the first time.
