"At The Going Down Of The Sun"

ANZAC DAY- 25th of April

"....They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them...."

Tomorrow, ANZAC Day, is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.
Lest We Forget

"The Cathedral"

The Cathedral at sunset, Mt Buffalo National Park, Australia. 21/02/2015

I went chasing the crescent Moon and Venus/Mars conjunction and other star images at one of my favorite locations yesterday evening. The weather put pay to any night shots and I only got a quick glimpse of the conjunction, but the trip was not a complete waste with one star making a brief appearance.

"Sisterly Love"

Comet Lovejoy and The Pleiades (Seven Sisters). 15/01/15

A slight deviation from my usual nightscapes. After weeks of either bad weather, unfavorable moon phases or other commitments I finally got a chance to try imaging Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy late last week. The sky was clear but it was too windy to try imaging through my telescope so I instead attached my camera directly to the telescope mount and did some wide field images to include The Pleiades star cluster.
Canon 6D, Star tracking on a NEQ6 Pro telescope mount, Tamron 90mm, F/5.6, ISO 3200, 15 times 2 minute exposures stacked and processed in LR and PS CC.

"Stargate"

Please feel free to share. Fullscreen view recommended.

Following on from my previous image and waiting for the aurora that was not to be. On top of Mt Pilot after rain there are a few fresh water pools in depressions in the solid granite. With the Milky Way overhead and the Zodiacal light streaming up from the horizon I couldn't resist jumping in front of the camera.

"Infinity"

Mt Buffalo National Park, Australia, 29/08/14

Spent the night back at one of my favorite locations to image from a couple of nights ago.  There was still a bit of snow around from heavy falls earlier in the year.
With the central bulge of the Milky Way directly overhead and a crescent Moon setting in the west, I thought it was a good time to do another all sky panorama before setting up for a few timelapse sequences.

A lot of people on another site has said I should have called this image "Dragons Eye" and I agree that that would be a great title for this, but "Infinity" reflects what I was feeling on this night, as I spent a large part of it just lying on my back and staring up into night sky. 

23 image panorama.

"Dusk"

The Horn, Mt Buffalo National Park, Australia. 10/04/2015

This location will be well known to followers of my work. I have imaged here many times over the years and it is one of my goto locations if there is a chance of aurora reaching my latitude. Indications were somewhat promising yesterday afternoon so I once again headed up there. 

I love the period after sunset as the sky gradually darkens and one by one the stars start to emerge. This shot was taken with the last glow of sunset still lingering on the right hand horizon. The faint red and purple was all that I captured of the very brief aurora. A few more frames into the timelapse and it was gone.

Canon 6D, 14mm, F/2.8, ISO 3200, 30 seconds.

"For The Past, Present and Future Explorers"

Lie down. Look up. Remember those who went before, and dare to dream.

Today is NASA's day of remembrance, marking 29 years since the Challenger disaster and also a time to remember the Columbia and Apollo 1 disasters and those lost in test flights and research throughout NASA's history.

I took this set of images back in 2012 and I was processing them when I heard of the passing of Neil Armstrong, so the title came from thinking about him and his achievements.

This reprocessed version is part of a feature on me and my work done by +Royce Bair  from Into The Night Photography. I am very humbled and honored to be amongst the select few to be featured by Royce. You can check out the blog and find out more about Royce and his great work here: http://intothenightphoto.blogspot.com.au/2015/01/capturing-night-by-greg-gibbs.html

"Flare"

Lake Hume, Australia, 24/10/14

A few weeks ago I went to my local astronomy clubs yearly star gazing camp where I was a guest speaker. On the first night the sky was reasonably clear so I set up a camera to click away doing a timelapse whilst I enjoyed hanging out with fellow amateur astronomers.
I always enjoy picking up a camera after it has been shooting on it's own, and scrolling back through all the images to see if I captured anything interesting. Apart from a couple of fish swimming back and forth on the lake edge the standout in this sequence was this bright satellite flare I managed to capture near the start of the night. The bright glow on the horizon is a large city about 20 kilometers away.

"The Rift"
I have been wanting to shoot from this location for years and years and I was lucky enough to get permission from the landowner a few days ago. It is hard to tell from the image but I was standing on the edge of a cliff with spectacular views of the surrounding area.

Over 180 degree panorama made from 12 individual images (6 x 2 rows) showing the full Southern Hemisphere view of the Milky Way at this time of year and also featuring the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds and the Zodiacal Light. 20/09/2014

"Ground Control"

With a high chance of aurora following an X-class solar flare last week, I have spent the last two nights out under the stars. Sadly the aurora was not to be but on the plus side I took the opportunity to explore some new locations. Whilst I had one camera pointed south and taking continuous shots I wandered around with my other camera taking various images.
This is the Mt Pilot Fire Tower which is used during the warmer months in Australia to look for the first signs of bush fires.

11 image vertical panorama. Canon 5D MkII, 24mm, F/2, ISO 3200, 20 seconds.
