Love this pic. Composite of two pics with the photographer sitting on the dune.
 
Original Work "A Moment of Star Filled Silence"

Looking back at my April shots, I processed this one of myself sitting and looking up at the stars.  In fact, it was a rare moment of being still and actually taking the time to enjoy the wonder of the night sky - most of the time I'm rushing from one place to another, judging and contemplating the composition of my next shots.

Enjoy, Will.

For those interested in the image detail, read as follows:

DATE / TIME: 2015-04-17
LOCATION: Dunes near Cervantes, Western Australia
SCOPE: Samyang 14mm F2.8
OPTICAL ATTACHMENTS: None
MOUNT: tracking mount head on standard tripod
CAMERA: EOS6D unmodded
EXPOSURE: ISO3200 @ 116sec (foreground), and ISO3200 @ 116sec (background)
PROCESSING: Exposures combined and processed in Photoshop

I love this. It really makes me feel good to see someone using ingenuity to turn waste into something great for sick kids
 
Bryan Ware, an inventive dad in San Francisco, has come up with a brilliant way to reuse leftover crayons that get thrown out by restaurants and schools – he melts them down and recycles them into new crayons for children at hospitals.

So sad to see the news this afternoon of Wayne Dyer passing. I saw him once a few years ago and countless times saw TV specials on PBS or heard recordings of his work. 

Super smart guy in making the esoteric and self help stuff just seem easier to do. 

I will miss your wisdom Wayne Dyer...

I have recently started trying to take nighttime shots like this and boy is it hard. This post has lots of astrophotography tutorials. I need to dig into them
 
Do you want to shoot the night sky?
If you like this post, please share so others can learn
Tutorial list at bottom of post

It's been a while since I've posted a list of my tutorials on G+
One thing that I've always thought is that the internet and a bit of knowledge is a wonderful thing in the right hands.
Learning night sky photography or as others call it, landscape astrophotography is a wonderful but sometimes taxing experience.  My journey was made easier through the internet.  Others that were willing to share some of what others had taught them, or they learned over hours and hours of trial and error (I've experienced both to get where I am).
In what I feel is the spirit of G+ I have always shared knowledge with fellow photographers and those wishing to start learning how to shoot at night.
Believe me, I'm not saying that workshops are a waste of time, in fact quite the opposite.  You can only learn so much from reading.  
Perhaps those interested in night sky shooting should keep there eyes on my stream as there are some potential opportunities for a workshop or two in 2014.

Our Nerdcave is really coming together. Double tables so that Jaiden has his computer on one side and his stop motion on another table. I am across from him and we both have access to the chrome cast on the TV
