Aurora Australis and the Milky Way, Goats Bluff, Tasmania. 15/08/2015
I naturally spend a lot of time out under the stars around my local area and I am very familiar with a lot of the features of the night sky- so it always fascinates me when I go to Tasmania just how much higher in the sky something like the Southern Cross is and how the central bulge of the Milky Way, instead of being straight overhead at this time of the year and night from home, is a lot further to the north.
I took the opportunity of a brief window in the clouds during the large aurora display on the 15th of August to do a vertical panorama to try to catch the central bulge of the MW with limited success.
Six image panorama. Canon 6D, 14mm, F/2.8, ISO 3200, 6 X 30 seconds
12/05/14 - The world turns on the Passo Giau.
This was taken on a a particularly beautiful evening in the Italian Dolomites. The full moon was exceptionally bright and was actually casting shadows on the mountains. The orange glow to the right of the shot is not sunset (this was taken just after midnight), but rather the lights from the nearby town of Cortina. This is a single long exposure shot, no stacking has been done.
Many thanks for viewing, I hope you enjoy.
