Photos by Thad V'Soske / Night Sky

My serious interest in photography began in 1996 with images of the night sky. Since then my cameras and I have captured many interesting photos of the world around us - and beyond. I hope that you enjoy these images and that they inspire your curiosity about our little corner of the universe. -Thad
