Stealth Bomber, Nebraska, 1996

Photo: Stealth Bomber
"Designed to be invisible to enemy radar, a B-2 stealth bomber slices across southwestern Nebraska. The state's main military installation—Offutt Air Base, in Bellevue—managed to evade Washington's political guns during a spate of recent base closings. This area, the top brass successfully argued, provides the Air Force with a central location relatively free of commercial air traffic."

—From "Nebraska: Standing Tall Again," November 1998, National Geographic magazine

Long Exposures

When making long exposures, use a remote release to avoid camera movement. If you don't have a remote release, use the camera's self-timer.
