This was literally my reaction when I got out of the car and looked up at the night sky just outside of Harden, NSW. I've photographed the Milky Way core many times before, but never have I seen it so clearly with my own eyes, it was amazing! And it made me probably a little too excited at what was before me. 😂
We found this dead tree amongst the canola earlier in the day so we knew where to come back to once the sunlight had long gone! 🌌
Perspective of Life.
There is a reason for loving this photo. It reminds me my first steps in Astro photography, when I was searching for space chaotic quotes trying to express my curiosity and awe about the Cosmos. I hope you enjoy the view!
Shot with #canon 6D + Canon 17-40 f4L
This is one of the few photos from my last camping trip up to the Sierra's. I snapped this on the last night of camping and pointed the camera nearly straight up into the night sky. This isn't the core of the Milky Way but you can still follow it. This place is one of my favorite camping spots in the world. I got to explore the area much more this time around and the afternoon rainstorms were everything. Packing a bunch of soaked gear in the morning was not ideal but well worth it. I ordered some books for the backroads of California today and finally have a copy of Ansel Adams autobiogprahy on the way. Stoked to read. Stoked to learn. Stoked to be stoked. Stoked.
Been focused on a lot of different things lately, the most important of which is the Light the Night walk put on by the @leukemialymphomasociety annually. This is my team's 9th year (Team Unbreakable) participating and we are very close to reaching our goal of raising $5000! This money goes towards research for cures and raising awareness of blood cancers. We walk every year, remembering those we've lost, supporting those who are currently fighting for their lives, and readying those who are preparing for the battle.

This shot was taken by @itsmeanario at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art in their Ocean's of Light exhibit. Really cool setup with varying music and light effects to follow it. Shout out to @kkri5hh for giving me the heads up.
Hawaii is such a beautiful state!! This is the beautiful Waimea Canyon, also known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, located on the island of Kaua'i. This is easily one of my favorite places with how beautiful it is!!Who else would like to visit this place?? Click to link in my bio to find out how I do it!

How's my photography been doing lately?
That's my brother there fooling around with some glowsticks. It's amazing how much light painting you can do in only 30 seconds. Shot on 5DIV 14mm f1.8.
This was from our first night in Iceland last week. We were on our way between Reykjavik and Keflavik, when we decided to pull over near this building on the side of the road. The moon was rising at over 80% which made it pretty bright out.
@Regranned from @universetoday - Hello again everyone! @winge.fi here for the second picture of the day here at @universetoday
This time far from the cold nordic region and Finland, down to beaches of Mexico and the Yucatan Peninsula.
Since the core of our galaxy is never visible at my latitude I'm forced to go south to see and photograph it.
This was the first time for me traveling south to see it and it was truly amazing!
This one is taken in the beginning of April 2017 at about 4 in the morning during a wonderful walk along the beach.
I had chosen the hotel carefully to avoid light pollution as far I could and one can understand that this place must have been absolutely paradise for astronomy during the Mayan era - No wonder the Mayans worshiped the stars like they did!
Many people have asked me what that light on the horizon is. It's simply a cruise ship in the far distance. I could have removed it while editing but decided to leave it be. They are always there and in some way a feature of the Caribbean.
Camera: Sony A7s
Lens: Rokinon 14 mm
Shutter speed: 30 seconds
Enjoy your day,

Milky! 🍼 ... once you witness the epic galaxy with your own eyes, it becomes a fascination. Or, at least that was the case for me. Looking back at my first Milky Way shots to present day, I'm happy with my progress in capturing and processing these images. My first images of the MW were processed overly blue and unrealistic. I've been working on trying to give these images a much more natural look and I think I'm making good progress with editing the Milky Way with respect to its true Milky colors. It's a learning process, and a long one at that. I forgot how much time was spent on processing this image 😅
It seems that making a light orb and painting with light tubes in 25" it's not easy when alone.
And I had a hard time to find out where I set the camera. Tip to myself: mark the camera with a dim light 😌. Single shot
ISO 6400 (since I wanted to get the milky way too)
