Awesome !!
 
Testing out some night photography too...

Did you know that not all views of the Milky Way are the same?  Because it's a huge band around the galaxy, you'd think it looks the same from everywhere.  But really, -30 in the Southern Hemisphere gives the most intense view because the "center" is constellation Sagittarius. This is the same reason they will build the Square Kilometer Array in South Africa or Australia near -30 latitude. 

This photo below is a few degrees below that down here in New Zealand, and the greenish curtains along the bottom was an ion storm during the aurora.

On my little road trip I'm gonna leave my tent for a bit star photography as well to test out the A7r for star shots. This one you see I got with the 14-24mm f/2.8 on the Nikon, but I think I should be able to get a comparable shot on the A7r, if not better.  I'll try out a few different lenses and see how it turns out!

awesome, we spiral through space and never hit the same place twice in out orbit of the sun.

Right at the end at 7.51, an instrumental was about to start. Can anyone give me the name of that? Thanks!

-92°C !!
 
What is the coldest place in the world? It is a high ridge in Antarctica on the East Antarctic Plateau where temperatures in several hollows can dip below minus 133.6° Fahrenheit (minus 92° Celsius) on a clear winter night - colder than the previous recorded low temperature.

Scientists at the National Snow and Ice Data Center made the discovery while analyzing the most detailed global surface temperature maps to date, developed with data from remote sensing satellites including the MODIS sensor on NASA's Aqua satellite, and the TIRS sensor on Landsat 8, a joint project of NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

The researchers analyzed 32 years of data from several satellite instruments that have mapped Antarctica's surface temperature. Near a high ridge that runs from Dome Arugs to Dome Fuji, the scientists found clusters of pockets that have plummeted to record low temperatures dozens of times. The lowest temperature the satellites detected - minus 136° F (minus 93.2° C), on Aug. 10, 2010.

The new record is several degrees colder than the previous low of minus 128.6° F (minus 89.2° C), set in 1983 at the Russian Vostok Research Station in East Antarctica. The coldest permanently inhabited place on Earth is northeastern Siberia, where temperatures dropped to a bone-chilling 90 degrees below zero F (minus 67.8° C) in the towns of Verkhoyansk (in 1892) and Oimekon (in 1933).

Miles of Lupines, Iceland

We arrived in Iceland when the Lupines were in full bloom. And while wandering around on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula we found this gorgeous location of an Icelandic church with lupines growing along the road. 

How was this image created? 
This is a manually blended image of 3 separate exposure using our iHDR workflow. When I took this shot the foreground and the mid ground were with soft filtered light through the high cloud layer, while the sky was lit by direct sunlight. The composition was selected to create depth in the image. 

Enjoy & Share.
