The magic of false kiva 600x400 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

The False Kiva is named for the round stone circle structure and It’s a category II archaeological site not marked on any maps or guides for a good reason. The trail is treacherous and potentially dangerous, leading along the edge of a very steep drop of several hundred feet. Some parts of the trail require climbing and during wet weather can be outright dangerous. False Kiva is located in the “Islands of the Sky” part of Canyonlands National Park, Utah. The remoteness and relatively unfamiliar location mean there is a good chance you will not encounter a soul on your hike and that you will most likely have this unique and astonishing site all to yourself.
One can only imagine the thousands of times individuals through the ages saw the same view of the Milky Way parade across the heavens.

the Crown of the dolomites 600x372 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

14 shots, 7 for the mountains and 7 for the sky.
This photo was taken from Costazza peak, above Passo Rolle.
Reaching the summit in the middle of the night in total darkenss with only a led-flashlight was crazy 
The return was worse because of the continuous risk of slipping on the wet grass, but in the end everything went well.
I am pleased with this shot, I hope you like it too!

Temangoroa 600x400 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

Wanaka on the way to Haast, somewhere. New Zealand, taken on a full moon raising over the mountains. the hard part of this was trying to find a good spot to shoot this image, not knowing where the moon would raise, it masks it hard due to the driving on winding roads so many corners you sort of get disorientated and lost track of where you are sometimes, well after about 3 hours and around 10:30pm i found a spot, finally. so about this image, using a tripod i position myself not moving the camera for about 3 hours i took about 60 shots but only used 4 different exposures in the end, so as the moon raised and the stars came out with the milky way just made for a great experience. photoshop – blending the 4 shots together along with levels and curves, colour balance, filter effects, de noise, sharpening.

Stellar Sunshine 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

In August around 3 am the Milky Way rises above the 14692 ft (4478 m) high Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps. After moonset or at new moon millions of stars belonging to our galaxy light up the sky. Realizing pointy stars during the 4 minutes exposure time requires star tracking with the camera to compensate for earth rotation. This causes also faint stars to appear on the image so that the number of stars visible largely increases. However, the reflection of the stars in the lake remain as trails as the star tracking is mirrored and hence tracks in the wrong direction. Hence this effect documents the dynamics of the earth rotation. Under the vast firmament of the Milky Way the star constellations of Sagittarius and Scorpius are setting below the horizon to the left and right of Matterhorn. The twofold Milky Way intersected by dark clouds of interstellar dust shows the constellations of Scutum and the Ophiuchus. Just above three bright stars are visible that belong to the so called summer triangle. These stars are Atair of Aquila, Wega in Lyra and Deneb in Cygnus. The constellations atop the image belong to Cepheus and the Cassiopeia.

Snow Angel 600x400 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

I take my star shooting seriously. I will keep on shooting stars as long as it is dark and there are new ideas to try.
BUT, I also find it highly important to laugh, relax, and occasionally just flop down in the snow and look up to enjoy the sparkling show icon smile 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights
As landscape photographers, I think we need to keep in the back of our minds a priority to “Be Where You Are.” In other words, yes, get the shot, bring home the winner, win contests, get in magazines, sell pictures at galleries- but damnit, make sure before all that happens, that you literally stop and smell the roses while shooting. Or lay down to look at the stars. Or, skip an exposure to just watch the Golden Hour show happen.
We travel so far to take pictures of beautiful things, but I know for me, I get there and then I can get all wrapped up in my intentions and focus and completely miss the experience of being there. Yes, I came home with beautiful pictures, but the whole time was wrapped up in ISO, aperture and shutter speed. That, is a small tragedy.
“Be Where You Are.”
Or, for kicks, read the next line in your best Yoda impression:
“Where you are, beeee”
*laughing*
Thanks to Chip McAlpine for letting me join his trip, and especially for driving my snoring ass home afterwards!
This is from our first night at Crater Lake, out by Rim Village. Evidently it is against all things Holy to camp out within the lip of the rim. *shrugging* I just followed a trail in the snow! The Ranger was quite flustered when he found me here in the morning. My apologies to offended Head Ranger, my thanks to Crater Lake gods for sharing a night of stars and bedding within the off limits.

Milky Way arcing over the Steel Cliffs of Mt Hood.
Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve posted a new picture! Lately, I have put alot of time and attention on timelapse photography, so I’ve been short on single frame material to share.
This is actually a single frame from a timelapse that seems to have enough “punch” to stand on its own. …What do you think?

The lone archway provides a portal to our imaginative experiences, curiosity, inquiry, and interpretations of the night sky. In the far off distance, the photographer renders a reality that includes everything that is and has been. His art is based upon his world view, experience, and perceptions of man’s search for meaning.

This is from a dark skies location between Baggs and Encampment Wyoming. It is always so amazing to be in place with low light pollution like found in the Sierra Madre Mountains. Cloud cover moved in not long after this take on the Milky Way and brought my session to a premature close, so I will have to go back for more night photography in this promising location!

Only Dust in space 600x399 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

Horsehead nubula B33 in Orion.
15 exposures 600sec. each are summed up in order to enhance the signal to noise ratio. This results in an equivalent overall exposure time of 2.5 h.
With the naked eye only the two brightest stars in the image are visible and you need at least a 10 inch telescope to get only a glimpse of the horsehead nebula.
This is not the case for photographic observation. A 3 inch Pentax 75 SDHF apochromatic refractor with a focal length of 500 mm was used to shoot this picture.

Nocturne Eruption 600x365 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

The cold clean air bit at my cheeks and my feet were numb. Still, I am becoming more and more aware of time and how it shapes and leaves its marks on the Earth. In this region, the Milky Way shows her entire form for no other reason but to remind me of warm memories. During a perfect clear and bright moment in this winter’s night, arose a glory without a single sound. In the stark still shadows of a February eve, I breathed in winter, inhaling the reverent sight.

Milky Way Over Arches 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

Double Arch, located in Utah’s Arches National Park, under the night sky. Best viewed in the lightbox.
This is a tweaked version of one of my all-time favorite shots, after getting some good feedback over at NPN. Compared to the original version, I’ve fixed some hotspots with the light painting, lowered the arches’ exposure, and made them warmer and more magenta.
This was created via light painting with an LED flashlight, and two manually blended exposures (primarily due to not having the right camera body and flashlight gels to do it in a single exposure.)
Sky exposure:
30 sec, f/2.8, ISO 3200, 4200K WB
Rock exposure:

My friends Chris, Ted and I went out tonight and shot under the light of the full moon.

in dead of the night 600x400 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

Namibia is not only the least densily populated country of the world, it is also one of the driest. The clear desert air is perfect for shooting stars and star trails, so that’s one of the things we always try on each year’s Namibia workshop.
I had planned the trip to coincide with new moon, so that we would have pitch dark nights with lots of stars. By the end of the tour we had managed to try it at three different locations. And even if you don’t like star trails (you know who your are, it’s still a lot of fun to try – being out there in the darkness, fiddling around with your buttons and settings, and not to forget the excitement a few hours later, or sometimes even the next morning: did it all work? Or: ehm, where was it that I put my camera last night? icon smile 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights
When we returned the next morning, everything worked out, and we spent our time in the bus to stack the whole lot in PS to see the results. If you’re interested, please have a look on my blog to see the images from the rest of our group.
For this shot of a dead camelthorn tree I made a 58 second exposure for the master image, during which I painted the tree and the foreground with a small torch and a warm-up gel. There was still some afterglow on the dunes in the background. During the night the camera took little over 80 shots, each four minutes long.
I would have liked the center of the star trails to be more to the left, but to get this view of the tree, with all the branches perfectly separated, this was the only position that worked – and believe me, I tried. icon smile 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights
As I was shooting with a D3X, I converted the star shots to jpeg after raw conversion before stacking them in PS, to keep the file size manageable.

Galileo’s Muse offers a surprising view, and captures the imagination of anyone who dreams of unlocking the secrets of nature.

Using his internal rhythms of imagination, he found insight within humanistic roots of modern science, even when confronted by his own limitations.

Dawn of the Nightglory 600x400 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

One of the most spectacular views in the European Alps is the nighttime glory of the Mt. Blanc massif reflecting in Lac de Chésery with the Milky Way atop. After the passage of a summertime low pressure system plenty of freshly fallen snow lights up the jagged peaks while few mid-level clouds rush across the sky. The Milky Way rises just above the main summit of Mt. Blanc. The brightest part comprises the galactic centre with the star constellation Sagittarius in a distance of about 25000 lightyears. Sagittarius is brightly reflecting in Lac de Chésery revealing its blue spectral star color. The bright reddish Lagoon nebula is surrounded by dark interstellar dust clouds that block the light of the stars behind. The bright Milky Way of the Scutum constellation is visible at the top of the image. Most of the peaks of the Mt. Blanc massif are well above 13000 ft (4000 m). The huge peak to the left is L’Aiguille Verte (13524 ft, 4122 m) followed by the distant chain of Les Grandes Jorasses (13780 ft, 4200 m), the jagged peaks of the Aiguille des Grand Charmoz to Aiguille du Midi (12605 ft, 3842 m) and European Alps highest peak Mt. Blanc itself (15781ft, 4810 m).

Cave Lake 600x397 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

Shot at Cave Lake near Ely, Nevada my hometown while visiting for Thanksgiving.
As usual it was a last minute decision because all the stars aligned. I was thinking of doing some shooting at Cave Lake while I was there, but when I realized that the sky was going to be totally clear and there was no moon I knew I had to do some night shots. Unfortunately I didn’t really have any really warm clothes so Melissa and I scrapped together what we could and headed out to freeze. It was a little breezy and in the 30s as we sat out at the lake with blankets while I played with my camera.
I originally had intended for some star trails but after fiddling with some things and it being cold I decided to go for Milky Way shots for the lake. I also got some twilight shots to composite in to add more detail to the surrounding hills.
All in all I’m fairly satisfied with the result. Still have some things to learn in photoshop especially in the noise cleaning department but it seems you can only do so much with 2000 ISO on a D7000.

The Solstice 600x400 80+ Mind Blowing Starscapes of Beautiful and Mystic Starry Nights

I’ve spent the last two weeks in and around the desert southwest. Here’s one of those one in a million situations…I actually went out to shoot star trails and found some of the coolest cloud formations I’ve ever seen, not to mention in the general realm of composition I desired! So, I took advantage. This lasted about 20 minutes so I had a lot of times to capture quite a few frames until I got just the right clouds I wanted. This is a 30 second exposure with the “magic lantern” technique described in recent past postings here on Flickr.
This is a Hohokam Indian petroglyph. Of course no one knows what the spiral means but the top two guesses for the meaning of a spiral petroglyph are:
1) A water source is near by (true i this case)
2) It is a related to the night sky
Well hope you enjoy. This is likely my last post of 2011 as I’m off to Africa next for the month of January. Next up, critter shots!

This was a very enjoyable evening when I took this last year. I had spent most of the summer avoiding the moon, only going out shooting on the darkest nights possible to capture the Milky Way bright and epic. But this night, the moon was big, bright and prominent. And, it turned out to be a relief to be out in a “bright” night of stars!

The single most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Some geek site stated that tonight was the best night of the year to see the milky-way. Well they were wrong because it was a full moon. I drove 3 hours to get to the only “DARK” area near LA. As my luck usually goes, the gate was locked when I got there. I started driving and came to a sign that read “DEAD END.” I noticed a small path behind the sign and after further investigation saw that it was a dirt road. I drove up and up and up. This road just kept climbing.. 32 miles later, I pulled over and saw this. I was blown away. No picture could do it justice. That;s fog covering the valley and those lights, that’s the traffic on the Ventura Highway. A couple shooting stars and yes that mess in the upper left, that’s the Milky-Way. The hard thing was picking a picture to post…I processed 8 images that all look completely different.
This is an HDR image made up of three different exposures 6, 15 and 30 seconds. Some selective noise reduction a little sharpening, that’s all.
