Lunar Eclipse by the Lighthouse

Here is my take on the lunar eclipse from the past weekend smile emoticon Witnessing the lunar eclipse was magical. Planning and shooting the same was a lot of fun. Out here, in the north east of US, the lunar eclipse was not total, so missed out on the blood moon, but it was still a scintillating experience. As the moon was getting into total eclipse, it set over the horizon. But at the same time it created for some interesting photographing options.
Driving for couple of hours, setting out with the camera in the biting cold, witnessing moving ice by the lake, the planning, the execution and the processing – it all culminated in the below

Baha'i Temple of Worship
If you have visited this place, you know that the entire temple is pure white. But the twilight, bought in the golden shade and accentuated the intricate work on the walls. I also loved how the lilies complimented the setting sun :)

Learnt about a new plan that Mayor @Rahm Emanuel had put forward to make the city of Chicago as "The North American City of Lights" [http://politics.suntimes.com/article/chicago/emanuel-launches-design-contest-make-chicago-city-lights/wed-06042014-1228am].  I love night sky, I love watching the stars & milky way. But I would also say I love lights and city skylines. It was a great experience shooting man made skylines like this @ Seattle [https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/search/seatlle%20skyline?pid=5694271122147756290&oid=116010774994612431921].

I love lights. Without them, the shadows would not be so beautiful. So I say come let us light up Chicago ! Lighting is not just about adding jarring halogens and LEDs to buildings. It also can be learning and designing a lighting systems at a really grand scale that is functional and beautiful, while keeping the light pollution low. Am sure we do have technology in place to achieve this. So if you are one of them who can make it happen – – do participate in this world wide competition and submit a proposal to light up Chicago – in a way we can all enjoy the milky way that is always there !!!

 

Come let us light up Chicago – in a way to reduce light pollution & bring out the milky way that had always been there !!!

This shot is a composite of the Chicago skyline from the Alder Planetarium. The milky ways is from Green River Wildlife area – a couple of hours away from Chicago. Hopefully we would be able to enjoy views like this without camera gimmicky or total blackouts.

Storm in the Skies
After driving for 14 hours straight, I thought, all I would want was to get some break and sleep. But I was wrong ! As we reached the Smoky Mountain National Park and set the tent well into the darkness, the conditions were just ripe to explore some stars and was too tempting to miss ! The moon was not up, it was one of the darkest skies that I had seen in a while. It took a while to drive around and identify a spot, safe enough to shoot shoot the stars with some interesting foreground. Being new to the place, the mystery of the night and the sound of the rushing stream near by, added to the experience. The clouds were moving pretty fast, and helped set the mood of this shot to a great extent.
As for the processing : Yes this was made possible by the use of – Creative Trails UI & Creative Effects UI - the nifty Photoshop script(s). You can read more and download the scripts @ http://bit.ly/15ESYYH
— at Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Through the Looking Glass

At the heart of the Mirror Lake State Park is a beautiful lake … It is a great place to swim and paddle in. The evening was chill and the water was still. I just decided to stay out and enjoy the reflection, with just occasional birds accompanying me. The twilight from setting sun, the fall colors and the reflections were just complimenting each other. It turned out to be an amazing evening ! Now this is worth calling a Mirror Lake, right ;-)

Sunset by the Ocean

Very Good Evening ! 
It has been a crazy week and is continuing to be ! Wish Saturdays and Sundays come more often in a week ;-) How is your week going !

This is from way past in 2006 when I bought in my trusted pal canon S2. I did not have any tripod or filters then. AS they say most of the dramatic sunsets happen when you drive. Luckily for me I was driving by the ocean and just jumped out to get a shot. The west coast does feast you with an awesome show with sunsets. Not a great composition , but I loved the colors !

Camelopardalis Meteor (05.24.2014) 

When I heard about this new meteor shower, I was pretty excited. Time of the event being a weekend – check. Location – northern continental US – favorable. Clear skies – check. May be the stars just aligned for this !

The forecasted peak time for the meteor shower was from 1 –3 AM CST. It was not as much as hyped (~200 / hr ?), but the night was still clear and Milky way was magnificent. Around 4 AM, took out my flashlight and started playing to get a star war style crisscross with the milky way. Just then the celestial gods decided to bless – look – a shooting start in the same direction my camera was positioned, as if to slice the Milky way.This was not one of the shooting star i saw in person. I was busy walking up & down and playing with the flash light. But I will definitely settle for this shot instead
#Camelopardalis
As you would have read from the news, the new meteor shower – Camelopardalis - was expected to adorn the skies during the early morning of 5.24.2014. When I heard about this meteor shower, I was pr...
