Another Milky way time-lapse with added star trails.

Milky Way Rising...

Spent a couple of late nights last weekend making the most of the late rising moon.

This was taken Saturday night out the back of Gordon, ACT, because I left it a bit late to head out and really didn't want to drive too far, we were down by Paddy's River watching the milky way rise in the sky. Well, to honest, you don't really notice it when you're out there sitting under it, but you do when you have a time lapse to show its movement.

This image is pretty cool, well to me, as after I'd processed all the raw files to jpeg then 'morphed' in additional images between each of the shots, I then put together the time lapse video.

Watching the video through a few times movement on one of the branches on the tree caught my eye. Watching again a few time over, it would appear that we were visited by an owl.

If you open the image full size and on the left side of the tree as you look at it, one up from the bottom branch you'll see what looks like a fork in the branch.... that's a bird, an owl I'm fairly sure.

Getting in early for the coming milky way season :)

I'm still to finish off the time lapse with a backing track, will post it when it's done.

Canon 5DMk3 16-35mm F2.8 @ F2.8 26 Second exposure ISO3200.

Processing done using all open source tools, RawTherapee on Linux.

A much smoother version of the previous time lapses.

Seems I deleted the video before, so re-uploaded.

Time lapse of the Milky way rotating through the sky.

And back again...

Good to see Google+ is still fairly lively. I have to admit that I've gone off it with the changes that make sharing photos just that more involved than it used to be. Unless there's something weird in my workflow?

Anyway, here's a flower, a weed more than likely, that I took while waiting on a time lapse to finish.... Someone has rediscovered Magic Lantern on the old 60D and this time it's going to be interesting! It's also a justification not to sell the body. :)

Sunset over the Hay Plains...
Played hockey over in Adelaide the other week. Drove over with great plans on camping up in the Flinders Ranges for a few days afterwards.

Anyway, this is on the way over to Adelaide along the Sturt Highway and the Hay plains. Finally found myself travelling at the right time of the day.
