Road trip with Jim Richardson

Road Trip: Night Skies and Long Days

National Geographic Photographer Jim Richardson takes a long road trip across the USA in search of examples of “light pollution.”

Next day I would be driving on with thousands of miles ahead of me. I had a trunk full of gear and my iPod loaded with music and audio books. With luck I’d have hours out of cellphone territory, where I could crank the music up loud (great territory for Mahler, moody and vast) and tell the world to get lost.

Oh yeah. Reading this excellent story definitely gets me in the mood for a road trip.
