Light Pollution

Yesterday driving back from Pacifica, we decided to drive through Half Moon Bay. Just before we got back on the highway we stumbled upon this magnificent sight. The light you see on the left is light pollution from Pacifica, and the light on the right is the Light pollution from the SFO airport all the way upto San Francisco.

Driving back from Shark Fin cove +Cecil Perera uncle and I came across this lighthouse standing watch over the starry sky.

Milky way over Liberty Lake - Night 3 at the Ruby Mountains

The last night at the Ruby mountains was pretty amazing and scary at the same time. +Beau Rogers and I set up camp pretty high in elevation overlooking the lake (this shot was taken from the campsite), but we didn't realize that when the wind picked up the basin amplified it and sent it screaming right past our tents. Good thing that we staked the tents and weighted the stakes down with rocks, because without that I am sure that we would have woken up in Kansas!

Thanks again +Praneeth Wanigasekera for loaning me his camera for the trip.

Milky Way over Castle Lake - Night 2 at the Ruby Mountains

Ok so the 2nd day of hiking on the Ruby mountains was much tougher than I expected it to be. +Beau Rogers  and I started the morning at the Lamoille lake at 9700ft, hiked up to Liberty pass at 10450ft, down to Liberty lake, then got lost (my bad for trying to remember an off-trail shortcut) and did a bit of backtracking for about 500ft of elevation, bushwhacked down to Favre lake at 9500ft and took a crazy steep climb up to Castle lake at 9800ft. All of this while wearing a 45lbs pack and not being properly adjusted to the high altitude :(... So by the time we finally got to our campsite, I was ready to crawl up an go to sleep for a few days in a row :O.

But after-all the whole point of the trip was to catch some cool milky-way shots, so I had to get up in the middle of the night, ignore my poor, beaten down body, and try to shoot this amazing view from Castle Lake. I don't do this image justice as I was too close to the lake and needed a much wider lens to properly capture the scene.

Thanks again +Praneeth Wanigasekera for letting me borrow his camera.

Milky way over Lamoille Lake - Night 1 at the Ruby Mountains

I finally got some time to finish processing a multi-shot pano of the Milky way over Lamoille Lake. I didn't realize that it would be that hard to stitch night shots together.

It was pretty amazing to be camping under these stars.

Thanks again +Praneeth Wanigasekera for letting me borrow his camera.

Night Lights

I finally got to processing a set of long exposures from Glacier Point at Yosemite. While we were shooting there were also a few hikers at the base of Half Dome enjoying the hiking trail under the star light.

Sleeping under the stars

This weekend we went camping at the Oh Ridge! campground next to June Lake in California. The moon went down after midnight and we were witness to this awesome sight. Inside the tent was +Shehani Samaranayake and our 4 month old on his first camping trip.

A shout out to +Praneeth Wanigasekera for lending me his camera and +Hanan Fernando for booking the campsite with this awesome view!

Passage of time

A lone structure witnesses the decades go by with only the stars to keep it company.

This weekend we went exploring the Yosemite National Park and made sure that we made the trip up to Glacier point after nightfall. The stars were so bright they were almost casting shadows on the ground.

Major thanks to +Praneeth Wanigasekera for lending me his camera for the trip.

Star trails over Half dome

This Wednesday I was lucky enough to be able to explore the majesty of the Yosemite National Park with my Google friends and colleagues. After a full day of hiking around in the park +Mike Fried and I drove up to Glacier point at 2am to play around with some night photography. This is one of my favorites from that set...
