The Crescent Nebula, the roughly round thing in the bottom-right if the image, is an emission nebula located in the constellation Cygnus. Its form is due to a the fast stellar wind from a star colliding with and ionizing the slower moving wind ejected by the same star when it became a red giant around 400,000 years ago.

You need a very dark sky to see it and a big telescope. It is very faint and the eyes are not enough sensitive to the red light. There is only one site from where I saw it : the Col de Restefond in south-eat of France. One of the very best astronomy spot in the country. At 2500m high and far from the city lights the sky is awesome and we can see a lot of object better than anywhere else.

Lagoon nebula is one of the most easy to observe nebula in summer sky. I see it on almost all photos of the Milky Way I can see here and there. It is located in Sagittarius, low on the horizon, which does not facilitate the shooting.
Only 20 exposures of 5 minutes, the sky background was too high.

Port Willunga
South Australia

An image from earlier this year on a wild winter morning where the tide was high and the clouds ominous. In the distance, the bottom of a crimson rainbow shone opposite the sunrise. One of the most spectacular dawns I've seen at one of my favourite coastal locations close to home. I hope once baby settles down, I'll be able to head out to the coast again as you never know what you're going to get even at a location you know like the back of your hand.

Phillip Island
Victoria

Another shot from the base of the Pinnacles in June this year when the weather was wild, swell was up - challenging conditions but a great reminder of nature's powers. You can access this area from a turn off to Cape Woolamai. From the farthest car park it was about 45 minutes pleasant walking (in the right conditions). Only the last part is tricky going down a slope in the muddy conditions.

In the south of Yunnan, near the Vietnam border, lies a region of incredible rice terraces high up in the mountains. Duoyishu is one of these regions in the hills which is lit at dawn and dusk . Reflections capture light before much else can be seen making for a striking appearance

Finally decided to redo my first milky way exposure


composite
5x iso2000 stacked using deep sky stacker
1x iso6400
1x cokin cross star filter
+ lot of PS mambo jumbo

When I was taking this one I had no clue on how to shoot and post process deep sky images so my exposures where a bit too long and i didn't take any dark frames but it came out ok at the end

old version

Cathedral of Saint Sava.(Храм светог Саве) is an Orthodox church in Belgrade, Serbia, the largest Orthodox cathedral on the Balkans, and one of the largest Orthodox cathedrals in the world.

The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an important figure in medieval Serbia.

It is built on the Vračar plateau, on the location where his remains were burned in 1595 by the Ottoman Empire's Sinan Pasha.

From its location, it dominates Belgrade's cityscape, and is perhaps the most monumental building in the city.

The building of the church structure is being financed exclusively by donations. The parish home is nearby, as will be the planned patriarchal building.

*It is not a cathedral in the technical ecclesiastical sense, as it is not the seat of a bishop (the seat of the Metropolitan bishop of Belgrade is St. Michael's Cathedral). In Serbian it is called a hram (temple), which is in Eastern Orthodoxy another name for a church. In English, it is usually called a cathedral because of its size and importance.

Another terrific sunset at the nearby Horsetooth Reservoir. On this visit, the water was at its highest point of the summer. So this time I tried a new location and noticed this spot along the waters edge. Wading into the water up to my waste, I positioned the camera for a nice sweeping panorama to capture everything. Then began the waiting game.

Once the sun began to spit out the evening colors, I began to shoot. Dragging out the exposure allowed for the water to smooth over into a nice foggy waterline. It also made the boaters invisible.

A friend of mine finally had some time off of work and decided to drive up from Denver to hang out. We had a great time long boarding around town and getting a couple of beers, but once the afternoon was over, we headed up to the Cherokee State Wildlife Area.

There is a plateau I have been wanting to climb up for some time now and I knew there would be a terrific view, especially with the wildflowers popping up. Even though we were destroyed by the mosquitoes, we still had great light and a good visit. Definitely a new favorite on the property.

While the air cools surrounding the desert and mountains, the colors themselves burn richer than the entire day. My lens rests upon a temporary sandbar that will soon erode from the passing stream. Later, the winds will carry the sand back to the dunes to create another stunning mound of sand for hikers and photographers alike to enjoy.

Decided to just go crazy with this star trail image from a few nights ago. There was a fair amount of wind and a few clouds about so I didn't get my telescope out, but I couldn't resist the dark skies. I more did this shoot for the timelapse video which I plan to put online soonish, which is why the ISO is so high. I wanted to capture as much of the Milky Way as possible. But of course, I then couldn't resist putting it all together into a single image. The high ISO brought out some weird star colours so I thought I would make the most of them and increase the saturation and vibrance of the colours in the image. Pretty happy with how it looks. I would love to know what you think of the effect.

Very similar composition to my last star trail, sorry. I do have a few interesting locations in mind, but couldn't be bothered traveling to them this night.

Been wanting to image this beautiful section of sky for a while now. Managed to do a bit of time on it this morning between the moon setting and the sun coming up.

This is the Rho Ophiuchus complex in the constellations of Scorpius and Ophiuchus. The faint red nebulosity on the right hand side of this image is an emission nebula (RCW129). The orange/yellow cloud is a dark nebula (IC4606). The colour comes from the light from the star Antares shining through it. Antares is one of the brightest stars in the night sky. Above and slightly to the left of Antares is The Cats Eye Cluster (M4). The faint red nebulosity to the left of M4 is Sh2-9 and Ced130. The three blue/green nebulas below that surrounding the dark brown nebula (B42) are from left to right IC 5604, IC 4603 and IC 4605.

I will certainly be revisiting this section of sky soon to put some proper time into imaging it to remove some more of the noise in this image. This is just a quicky.

Five panel vertical panorama. The central bulge of the Milky Way is almost directly overhead at this point. Light from a setting quarter moon lights up the landscape.

Another one from the same night....

What you are looking at is the Pale di San Martino group with some mountain lakes in the foreground near Baita Segantini (2200m) at night. I've spend half the night there shooting and looking at stars in this cloudless night. Except one lonely fox I was there on my own with the mountains, stars - and mosquitos.

By combining three exposures - one for the night sky, one for the mountains and the other for the foreground at twilight, I was able to create this image. I consider it among my most unique images to date. I took more than two hours in the field to shoot the raw data and more than six hours of postprocessing in the studio! Thanks a lot *slamdunker for providing massive postprocessing advice!!!

Baita Segantini (2200m) and the Pale di San Martino group, near San Martino di Castrozza.

I hiked up there from 1400m on four out of eight evenings I have spent in the Dolomites, Italy. Three of them completely cloudless but on the fourth hike and my last day of the whole trip I finally got my chance. :)
