APOD: Comet Dust over Enchanted Rock (2015 Aug 14)

Image Credit & Copyright: Jared Tennant
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap150814.html

Dusty debris from periodic Comet Swift-Tuttle was swept up by planet Earth this week. Vaporized by their passage through the dense atmosphere at 59 kilometers per second, the tiny grains produced a stream of Perseid meteors. A bright, colorful Perseid meteor flash was captured during this 20 second exposure. It made its ephemeral appearance after midnight on August 12, in the moonless skies over the broad granite dome of Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, central Texas, USA. Below the Perseid meteor, trees stand in silhouette against scattered lights along the horizon and the faint Milky Way, itself cut by dark clouds of interstellar dust.

Original Work "The Stars, Like Dust"
(curious to know if anyone remembers where that title came from).

Out of all the shots I took under the night sky on 17/04/2015, I sort of like this one the best, mostly due to it being a more subtle beauty rather than eye-catching.  Most shots are taken towards the centre of the galaxy where its is brightest and more vibrant, but this one is take looking towards the outer edge and to the vastness beyond.

Taken from near Cervantes, Western Australia, the waves of sand make an interesting foreground image under the night sky.  The Orion constellation is slowly falling towards the hozion with the barest hint of the Orion nebula visible if you zoom up a bit on it.  The milky way look away from the centre is far less bright, but never the less shows up faintly, just like the title says...like dust.

The image is a composite of two shots, the first at ISO3200 for 60sec at f2.8 for the sky, and the second at ISO3200 for 30sec at f2.8 for the foreground.

Enjoy, Will.

Passengers
"The Milky Way is such an insanely cool thing!"
"When you get as far out as I go, you start to see the star patterns that surround The Milky Way. In the early-1600s, Galileo was able to determine, through a telescope, that the star band was not one solid star. It was indeed a bunch of stars, billions, all ages, wrapped around a galactic center."
 
"As you approach my 'home' observatory in Java, right before turning off of the main road, there's a spot where you can see exactly where The Milky Way is....Absolutely beautiful!"

The Mirror Lake

Lake Hayes may be small, yet it's one of the most photographed lakes in New Zealand.

It's easy to see why. The ever changing tones of the land surrounding it and the majestic mountain ranges reflected perfectly on its crystal clear water provide some of the most stunning backdrops.

Location: Lake Hayes, Arrowtown, New Zealand

Solitary | Paso Robles, California

This is an image right at a decade in the making. Let me explain :-). 

I first visited California with my friend, soon to be girlfriend and now wife, Kristin back around 2005. Her Dad thought it'd be funny to throw a cherry bomb in my truck as a prank and it ended up burning a hole through my driver side seat as well as staining the chair red, so instead of replacing the seat he brought me along to California to visit their family in San Luis Obispo, hehe. 

As soon as I got to SLO, I fell in love. Both with the landscape and Kristin :-). I didn't know it at the time, but that trip basically kicked off our entire relationship. Her Aunt and Uncle lived in a house off Jack Creek Road and Vineyard Drive in Paso Robles and there was this lone tree on the top a hill there that caught my attention immediately.

I wanted a good shot of that tree so badly but I could never get one I was happy with. I tried every time I went out there afterwards, which has been at least once or twice a year ever since.

Well, a year or so ago I saw a shot from +Mark Gvazdinskas of a very similar looking tree, on a hill, in Paso Robles, with the Milky Way on fire behind it. Right when I saw that shot, I knew I'd have to give it a go one day if I ever got back to that tree. Kristin's Aunt and Uncle ended up selling that house a few years ago, so I hadn't been back that area in a while.

Yesterday, I finally made it over to the +Really Right Stuff headquarters. Mark doesn't work for RRS anymore, but I met Spencer there and as I was getting a quick repair done on my tripod, I saw that image of Mark's in their catalog and it reminded me of my desire to finally get a shot worth showing of that tree!

So, this morning at 3:45a, I woke my brother up, hopped in the car, and headed out to Jack Creek and Vineyard Drive. We hiked up the hill in the dark and I got this shot. The Milky Way was so incredibly bright I was speechless. And getting a clear sky in SLO at night isn't all that common in my experience. If I don't get another portfolio shot on this entire trip, I'll be happy to have finally gotten a shot of that lonely tree on the hilltop.
