“The long exposures used to make these photographs emphasize the passage of time and evoke the age of the trees, which is certainly considerable — although, compared to the age of the stars above, it is not even a blink of an eye,” Moon writes in the book, out this month from Abbeville Press. It follows her 2014 Ancient Trees, which featured platinum prints, with 50 vivid digital photographs of sequoias in California, oaks in England, and junipers in Utah. Some of the images fold out into large panoramas, and each tree is given the name of a constellation, like Atlas, Lyra, and Orion.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
