Sky & Telescope May 2016 Publication

The May 2016 Sky & Telescope has featured one of my images of W.M. Keck Observatory’s twin ten meter telescopes as they point their dual world-class Adaptive Optics system lasers at the super black hole at the center of the Milky Way.   EthanTweediePhotographyThis image documents the first time Keck Observatory used both Keck 1 and Keck 2 simultaneously aimed at the same object in space.

To read more about how observatories around the world use Adaptive Optics to correct for the Earth’s turbulent atmosphere please get a copy of the article here.

Austin City Skyline

Taken from the walkway of the First Street Bridge looking across the waters Ladybird Lake towards the Congress Avenue Bridge the Austin City Skyline rises above at Twilight on the evening of April 22nd 2016.  Barely noticeable is the packed crowd of bat watchers on the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge where up to 1.5 million bats emerge each evening from March to November.   The tallest building in Austin, The Austonian, rises left of center of the picture and on the far right is the Hotel Van Zandt one of Austin’s newest Hotels located on Rainey Street.  For image and print inquiries please contact me at 512-701-0985 or by email at



The Pennybacker Bridge or 360 Bridge Architecture

One of the finest examples of bridge architecture located right here in Austin Texas is the Pennybacker Bridge or 360 Bridge.  It was opened in 1982  and in 1984 the bridge won 1st place in the Federal Administration’s Excellence in Highway Design competition. In 1992 the bridge was selected by the Austin chapter of the Consulting Engineers Council of Texas. The bridge was picked as the most innovative example of Austin architecture and to this day is a icon of of the city.

On both sides of the 360 Highway there are hiking trails to the bluffs overlooking the bridge, its a great place to enjoy the outdoors and take in the beautiful view of Lake Austin and the surrounding Hill Country of Texas.

Mauna Kea Image by Ethan Tweedie Photography Featured at the`Imiloa Astronomy Center

Mauna Kea Sunset Panorama 2015

Mauna Kea Sunset Panorama 2015

Recently I was contacted by the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center in Hilo to provide an image of Mauna Kea that would be printed on a banner measuring 25 feet by 6 feet in an area right next to the Planetarium at the Center. In their words:

“No one captures the majesty and reverence of Maunakea better than you. Our goal is to give our community a place that they can share about why Maunakea is special to them. We hope that this will allow our community, both local and global, to express their pilina, connection, to this mauna as well as serve as a first step in helping to bring a community together towards shaping a new vision of the future of this beautiful wahi pana.

Me ke leo haʻahaʻa, Celeste Haʻo

This image they chose with the combination of snow and evening sunlight, was a photograph I had been waiting to capture for a long time. This panoramic image was taken on March 9th 2015. After days and days of stormy weather with high winds and blizzard conditions on the summit, the mountain finally could be seen for the first time at around 5:50pm. The sky was over cast with high clouds, however you could see the mountain’s huge mantle of white snow!

With the grey conditions I was not enthusiastic about getting that “perfect” image I waited so long to capture, however, I grabbed my camera gear and headed out to see what might come of things. My experience told me the lighting could change at any moment. My first vantage point of the evening did not produce any images, but looking to the west I could see a opening in the clouds where hopefully the sun would peak through and light up the mountain. I then changed locations and headed to my “secret” location, tripod and camera gear in my backpack. My camera set up on my tripod, I waited and waited and waited.

It was then a friend texted me. She said, “Can you see Mauna Kea?” I texted back YES I can see the mountain!! It was beautiful, however, not what I was hoping for…. I looked to the west again, the sun was still obscured by clouds, I had some hope though…. then just a moment later, the beautiful pink warm sunset light began shining on the mountain and I enthusiastically began taking panoramic images over and over and over completing 3 series of images. The light began very faintly, getting stronger and brighter as I shot. This beautiful “Kukahau’ula Light” lasted for only two and half minutes before it was gone… I knew I had just captured that perfect shot I envisioned so long ago.

The image can be seen at the the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center in Hilo and is also available for print in custom sizing on metal. Please contact me for pricing or visit Wishard Gallery in Waimea or Harbor Gallery in Kawaihae.
