Landscape Arch and Milky Way, Arches National Park

I just returned last night from a brief outing to Utah.  Man was it hot!  But not to fear, I was sleeping during the day and shooting all night.  It was one of the most productive shoots I have ever had, and I managed to nail 8 of the 9 compositions I had in mind along with shooting some other unplanned images to boot.  I used a combination of the Canon 5D Mark III with the Nikon 14-24mm zoom lens.  I am floored at how well this lens works for astrophotography landscapes, even wide open it is so sharp (when critically focused) with very little coma distortion in the corners.  The images I have reviewed so far really exceed my expectations.  And the 5D Mark III is a real step up from the 5D Mark II in terms of noise and high ISO.

In this image I used Pocket Wizard gear to remotely trigger my camera and special high powered light to illuminate the arch from 150 yards away in order to have sidelighting that shows the relief in the rocks and trees.

Bee Balm, Be Calm... Truckee, California
You know that sweetly sweet, intimate feeling you get when you're really close to someone you love... so close you can feel their breath, sense their warmth, feel their heartbeat and their energy flowing? I love that. 

It's also what I love about shooting macro. You step into an private world that you'd never take the time to notice with your bare eyes. Or, depending on your vision, even be able to see! It's like opening a door to a brand new universe. Especially in the  morning when the dew is like gemstones of another world. It makes me want to whisper. And sigh.

Sigh. 

Taken with my Canon 100mm Macro f2/8 II on my very own back deck. Contrast, sharpen, done. The plant is Bee Balm. And when it grows up and has flowers all its own, I'll show ya the hummingbirds that come to visit! Wheeeee!!
