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.
@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

First posted a similar shot almost exactly two years ago that also had a fuzzy patch by the cross. That fuzzy patch is Andromeda, another GALAXY! Visible to unaided eye.
Camping under the stars as the Milky Ways cuts through nearby towering sea stacks.
Or that was the plan until the clouds obscured the view. We actually moved our tent about half a mile down the beach once I checked @photopills to verify that the MW would align perfectly inside Split Rock. But with party cloudy skies in the forecast, all I could do was hope for the best. At 9:10pm, I set up two cameras for timelapses and sat on a log to watch and listen to the crashing waves from the rising tide. Even as my night vision improved, only a few blurry stars dotted the opaque sky above.
So image 1 is a composite of what I had visualized and image 2 is the sad reality. I posted this way for two reasons: 1) All too often, photographers will post composites and try to pass them off as single images (especially poorly cropped/zoomed moons in front of clouds). I think that is wrong on multiple levels. People shouldn’t lie about what’s real or possible. And 2) Learning how to make the best out of bad situations. Sure I would have loved to have a perfect sequence of galaxy images to add to the collection, but now I got the chance learn and practice some new techniques in Lightroom, Photoshop, and Premiere. I’m sorry this is such a long post, but thought I’d expand a bit on the story instead of leaving it to a silly poetic caption.
Here's a 14.5hr integration of the soul nebula in SHO narrowband. I think that's a terrible name, so I will affectionately refer to it as the buffalo nebula. This image is a bit different from my others as it uses 1hr long exposures, which are the longest I've ever used in making an image. Let me know what you think!
I’m desperately trying to make plans for this weekend, maybe getting a tracker tonight, and hoping for not cloudy weather which is what we have had all week. I want one last very successful shoot before the season is over👍
Last political post 👌 another shot from a couple of weeks ago!! A six photo panorama - made the words using a slideshow with each letter on a black background and I just moved round in single image !! .
New Zealand is in no position to be giving out tax cuts, a labour/green won't tax anyone's incomes but put the tax money that would be cut into housing, education and the health system!! Don't forgot that a vote for the greens is still a vote for labour but with a stronger environmental voice!! #changethegovt#letsdothis @nzlabour @nzgreenparty
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)
