For his work as the photo editor of the Fayetteville Observer and author of the monthly column for amateur astronomers, “Backyard Universe”, Horne has won numerous awards and is still recognized as one of the top “astro-photographers” in the country.
Horne’s “Astronomical Images” convey the mystery and majesty of the night sky and are collected by art lovers as well as by amateur astronomers. Now retired, he continues his “Backyard Universe” column for the Observer and recently traveled to Oregon to photograph the total eclipse of the sun.
Recently, Horne has been achieving spectacular photographs of local scenes and landmarks using unusual angles and lighting. He is also the artist behind the “Markethouse Sunrise” photographs that have appeared everywhere from walls to postcards in Fayetteville.
