100 meters behind this beautiful lake is the road that goes over Sørkjosen mountain ( Troms, Northern Norway), so this is quite an easy place to access.

I shot this image not long after I had shot "La vie est belle", this is when the sky has gone proper dark it is one shot of many in a timelapse sequence a friend and I made called  "Sixth Element" -> vimeo.com/79902085

Hope you like this.

The Orion Nebula is the most famous nebula in the sky. It is the Great Princess of Winter Nights. It is easily visible unaided eyes just below, or above if you're in southern hemisphere, the Orion's Belt and can be recognized with a simple binocular. In fact the Orion constellation in its entirety is a large nebula which M42 is just the most luminous part. It is also a star nursery : observation with the Hubble Space Telescope reveal protoplanetary disks inside. It is located at a distance of 1,350 light-years and is estimated to be 24 light years across.

Unlike a novice might think, this is not an easy photographic target. Especially when you want to show everything. That is to say, the trapeze at the very very bright center and all the dust and vaguely ionized gas that surrounds it.

First difficulty: it happens in winters. And recent winters have been mostly rainy. Thank you global warming. Before, we had beautiful sunny days and negative temperature guaranteeing us clear nights. It's been 4 years that I expected to be able to point the FSQ to it. And it does not happen as expected.

To acquire all the extreme dynamics of this part of the sky you have to mix different exposure times. I had done some testing in October and I was surprised to see the trapeze completely burned on 30s exposures. We must come down to 10s and again, it's limit. For the weaker parts, I made 5min exposures, 10min would not be luxury.

Last difficulty: it is low on the horizon that does not leave much time along the night to acquire all the necessary exposures before it is in the turbulence and light pollution. Especially as the sky was diffusing light that night with 20.7 SQM. I've seen better.

I had the idea to make two night from 21 to 23 December last year, but the telescope has been covered by dew the first night and I foolishly forget to turn the heaters on. The second night was much more dry, curiously.

I finally acquired 34 exposures of 5 minutes and 14 
exposures 10 seconds. I wished I have more. It should have been doing 5s, 30s and perhaps poses 10 minutes exposures and then a second night would not have been too much.

For the processing, I can appreciate the power of PixInsight even it is not easy to tame. Several day of "work", I had to made it twice.

34 exposures of 5 minutes and 14 exposure of 10 seconds for the bright heard.

After spending a restful 4 days in Sedona, AZ, I decided to visit Monument Valley since it was only a few hours away. It had snowed the day before, so it would be a good photo opportunity.

Monument Valley
is a region of the Colorado Plateau characterized by a cluster of vast sandstone buttes, It is located on the Arizona-Utah state line (around 36°59′N 110°6′W), near the Four Corners area. The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation, and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163.

East and West Mitten Buttes
are two distinctive geological features found within Monument Valley in northeast Navajo County, Arizona.

One little trickle cannot do much, but many of them working in the same direction can move mountains, like the cascade here at Hector Falls near Watkins Glen.

If you manage to save enough breath to climb the stairs past the main falls in Buttermilk Falls State Park near Ithaca then you will reach a set of cascading falls that each are a beauty in itself.

This Falls near Watkins Glen at the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York is known as Twin Falls. Access was so remote that I would not be surprised if one would find fairies bathing in them.

Finaly that break caught, the aurora has been really weak for over a month and just lately it has picked up, and super great that it was not as cloudy as yesterday.

Shot on a mountain called Kvænangsfjellet, near this summer open diner called Gildetun, and on a sidenote I have never seen so many stars so clearly as today.

A beautiful double rainbow, nice storm light and clouds featuring a little mountain stream and this green valley near Flesspass in Switzerland.

For those of you interested in some additional information behind the photo... we had not planned to end up there on the Flesspass surrounded by thunderstorms with only one hour until sunset on 2300m. At this point we were pretty lost and did not know where exactly we were going to. We started our eight hour hike in the early afternoon and planned to be back at the car before it gets dark. First everything went well. We hiked our way up to 2730m in time, enjoyed the spectacular view from Jöriflüelafurgga and had a copious picnic at one of the Jöri lakes. So far so good. We started our descent about five o'clock and planned to be back at the car at about seven. But then the first thunderstorm was coming in right over the peaks next to us. Dark fast moving clouds with rain and thunderbolts were rolling in. Scary. My girlfriend and I wanted to get down from the mountain as fast as possible and then it happended. We missed the right trail junction. At the point we realized that this had happend we could only go on down the current trail since we were surrounded by thunderstorms with lightning everywhere and only one hour until the sun sets and it gets dark. After approx. one hour of descent it startet to rain stronger but then we luckily met two italian women somewhere on the Flesspass who had a car at the end of the trail. They were kind enough to drive us back over another mountain pass road to our own car. My girlfriend and one of the Italian had to seat in the dog cage (with a huge dog in it of course) in the back of their old two-seat Range Rover. She was not that amused, but at the end of the day and after 1400 meter difference in altitude we were both happy to be back safely.
