The wings of the butterfly
The Twin Jet Nebula, or PN M2-9, is a striking example of a bipolar planetary nebula. Bipolar planetary nebulae are formed when the central object is not a single star, but a binary system, Studies have shown that the nebula’s size increases with time, and measurements of this rate of increase suggest that the stellar outburst that formed the lobes occurred just 1200 years ago.

#StayOutThere Challenge, Day 3: “Water”

While photographing at the beach in San Diego a few months back, I was hoping to get a nice, beautiful sunset over the water. Unfortunately there were no clouds in the sky to add color, so instead I focused my camera on the people on the beach! This little boy was waiting for the waves to come in just right so he could catch one back to the shore.

Tips for photographing water:

• Get creative with the theme! If you are not near any bodies of water, look for man-made elements, such as fountains or swimming pools. Even the hose in a backyard can make for a fun photography experiment!

• To freeze water, use a fast shutter speed (such as 1/1000 sec or higher). To blur water, put your camera on a tripod and keep the shutter open for a long time (several seconds will do!).

•Be careful! Water and cameras are not compatible, especially when they are occupying the same space. :) Take proper precaution to ensure your own safety, and be sure to keep that camera dry.

Dynamic Sunset at the River (Montreal)

Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed
----> http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/last-minute-sunset-at-the-river-montreal/

HDR Processed: Lightroom, Photomatix, Photoshop
Bracketing: 9 shots (-4, -3,  -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3, +4 )

It was another day with absolutely unpredictable weather in Montreal. I went to my favorite spot in the city for the sunsets without much hope of getting any light at all. For the entire afternoon the sun was completely covered with the thick and dark clouds.

Just before the sun was ready to submerge under the horizon the small opening appeared, letting sun out of the clouds. The sunset lasted 3-5 minutes at most but it was enough for me to take a few interesting shots.

The light was extremely dynamic. I was shooting directly into the sun but at the same time I had spots of very dark shadows around me. To make sure I cover entire range of light I took 9 bracketed shots from -4EV to+4EV. Later, I used only 7 exposures to tone map HDR image; +3 and +4 exposures were way too bright and unusable.

" Sunset over Brúarfoss, Iceland."

Brúarfoss, which could be translated as  "Waterfall bridge", is a hidden gem because you can´t see it from the road and there are no signs directing you to it.  It takes its name from a natural stone arch over the river near the waterfall from earlier times. What is fascinating about this waterfall is that there are thousands of small waterfalls running into a deep icy blue gap. If you don't know this area it can be little bit tricky to find it since you need to drive into the summer house area and walk some paths and through some bushes to reach it.

Waterfalls  Lakes Plitvice, Croatia (National Park)
Is among the 20 most beautiful lakes in the world to 17th place. The park covers an area of 33,000 hectares and includes 16 lakes in succession, connected by waterfalls.Plitvice is the oldest national park in Southeast Europa.All'interno the park there are also many caves of which only a small part is agibile.I lakes are formed by two rivers: the White River and the Black River, which flow in the river Korana. The waters of these rivers are rich in calcareous salts (mostly calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate), from the dissolution of carbonate rocks forming the geological structure of sito.Questi salts are precipitated by vegetation, forming layers of travertine , a sedimentary rock recently. Over time, these deposits forming real natural dams that act as barriers to water, growing by about a centimeter per year. At one point the water pressure breaks these natural levees, opening new paths in the ground.
This mechanism, in fact common to all the calcareous water, in Plitvice has assumed a particular importance.
The beauty of the National Park Plitvice, Croatia, is increased in the second round of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

SEVEN SISTERS WATERFALL, NORWAY

Location: Stranda Municipality,
Møre og Romsdal, Norway
Coordinates: 62°06′31″N 07°05′24″E
Total height: 410 metres (1,350 ft)
Longest drop : 250 metres (820 ft)


The Seven Sisters (Norwegian: De Syv Søstrene or Dei Sju Systrene, also known as Knivsflåfossen) is the 39th tallest waterfall in Norway. The waterfall consists of seven separate streams, and the tallest of the seven has a free fall that measures 250 metres (820 ft).

The waterfall is located along the Geirangerfjorden in Stranda Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The waterfall is located just south of the historic Knivsflå farm, across the fjord from the old Skageflå farm. The falls are about 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) west of the village of Geiranger. It is part of the Geiranger World Heritage Site.

Name:

"The Seven Sisters" (Norwegian: De Syv Søstrene or Dei Sju Systrene) is located on the northern side of the Geirangerfjorden, and directly across the fjord lies a single waterfall called "The Suitor" (Norwegian: Friaren). The legend of the seven sisters is that they dance playfully down the mountain. Meanwhile, across the fjord, the suitor (or courter) flirts playfully with them from afar.[1][2]

Old Dock Pilings, Barnegat Bay, New Jersey

Time after time, I am in position to photograph the sunset with many other photographers and observers around me. It is (usually) lots of fun talking to those nearby, but ... as soon as the sun goes behind the horizon, most people pack up and leave.
 
Last week, the same thing was happening as I was bayside in Seaside Park, NJ. Right after the sun disappeared, a friendly photographer came over and asked if I got "it" while showing me his favorite pic of the setting sun. I replied that I did, but indicated that the main show was likely still to come. He said that he liked to see the sun's reflection best. My thought was that his preference is fine, that we are all different, that I too like the sun's reflection and that I was still expecting the best yet to come.
 
Fortunately, this gentleman had enough question about my opinion vs. his that he stuck around. Fifteen minutes was all that was needed. The color in the sky was very impressive on this evening and Barnegat Bay was very calm. About 25 minutes after the sun set, the other photographer returned very excited. Upon a quick review of his website the next day, I found only one picture from that evening. One captured well after the sun had set.
 
Unless I am shooting landscape that the setting sun is directly lighting, I am usually more found of my post-sunset images. This image was my favorite from the night (though I have many close runners-up).
 
This is an HDR image, comprised of three exposures used to balance the overall brightness of the final image.
 
While an f/2 max aperture lens invites many uses in addition to landscape photography, the focal length range of the Sigma 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art Lens (http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Sigma-24-35mm-f-2-DG-HSM-Art-Lens.aspx) is great for this use. Since the Sigma 24-35mm f/2 Art Lens was what I was evaluating at the time, I put it to use for my sunset session. It performed excellently.
 
Gear Used:
Canon EOS 5Ds R
Sigma 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art Lens
Gitzo GT3542LS Systematic Carbon Fiber Tripod
Arca-Swiss Monoball Z1 Ball Head
 
Camera and Lens Settings:
24mm  f/11.0  1/8s, ISO 100, 8580 x 5720px

Celestial Bloom.........@Adam Dorn
With sunflower fields starting to reach full bloom a vision came to me. I had an idea to capture the galactic core of our galaxy rising up out of one of the flowers. With some research and the helpful tips from my fans I set out in search of my shot.
