Explosion in the Sky

This is a 30 image panorama of the Northern Lights over Djupfjorden in the Lofoten Islands, taken last Tuesday night, 25th of March. It covers over 180 degrees of sky.

This is the first time I have attempted a large panorama of the aurora and it was a difficult stitch. Even though my exposures were only 2 seconds, by the time I had swivelled the tripod to take the next shot the aurora had moved quite a lot! In hindsight the show was too strong and travelling too fast for me to freeze this moment in time. I photographed the sky as quick as I could and then did two more passes for the mids and the ground.

I stitched this panorama together by manually blending the exposures to try and match up the sky as best I could. It is not perfect but is still a good representation of what I saw that night. In a way the aurora shares many similarities with the snowflake, in that they are unique and never the same twice. So with this photograph I have created my own snowflake! multiple moments created by nature and shaped by me.

I hope you like it still.

Clear skies

This is a photograph I took straight up into the sky when the central bulge of the Milky Way was too high to incorporate any foreground elements into the composition. This is not something I usually do, but it always amazes me how much detail and structure you can capture in a single 30 second exposure. 

EXIF:
30SEC / f.2.8 / ISO3200 @ 14mm

The Milky Way sets over a dusty road that heads deep into the valley. This road breaks up after a few kilometres into nothing and if you keep going you end up at a precipice overlooking a dune. A great place to watch the sunrise :)

The rising Milky Way at Nambucca Heads, East coast Australia. A pleasently warm evening, quiet and sparkly!   #nightphotography   #milkywayphotography   #stars   #astrophotography   #astro   #beauty

Here's my latest effort shot in Northern Chile. A lot of challenges but a lot of fun too! :)

I am very impressed by your ability to capture the intense light of the moon while at the same time capturing the depth and colors within the Milky Way Galaxy. I am very interested in your methods. +Derrick Lytle have you seen this guy? +Sheila B. DuBois you should share +Nicholas Buer's stuff and add him if you haven't already. I just found him today!

Aurora over a beach in Norway. There was very little happening when I first set up. I was just about to pack down for the night when suddenly she started dancing in the sky.

Ever since then it has been a case of 'Lets wait just five more minutes!' You never know what you might miss otherwise.

Clear skies.

The Milky Way shines bright as the Moon and Venus set over a lagoon that looks like it is made of glass. A shot from Laguna Cejar in Northern Chile. For me, this is what tranquility looks like... :)
