“Night Sky Landscapes” by Robert Howell will be shown through the end of October. An amateur photographer, Bob has received great recognition for his work in the past year. He was able to capture a beautiful, grand Aurora Borealis light show, along with the eruption of a geyser in Yellowstone in an image that was chosen by NASA for its photo of the day and by Time Magazine for the school magazine in the U.S. and Japan.
“MetalPrints have come to the forefront as a new media for photographers,” said Bob, “and my fans like it. My landscapes are framed by the night and starlight that have traveled for millions of years are now imprinted on specially prepared aluminum. LuminBeings™, Stars & Geysers, and Night Sky Landscapes are images that share my awe of the night and aim to stir the viewer’s own sense of wonder.”
This is a one-of-a-kind photographic display that you don’t want to miss. In addition, Comet ISON will become visible with binoculars under a dark sky around late September and will reach its peak brightness on November 28. Updates on the Comet, Aurora Forecasts, and Bob’s night time photo adventures can be found at www.RobertHowellPhotography.com.
Each individual photograph is for sale, with a portion benefiting the Bozeman Library. The Library Foundation provides food and drink during the reception; call 582-2426 for more info.
