Last week’s snow has almost completely melted and the stars are reflected in the resulting puddles of meltwater.
This image is a stack of 38 individual exposures: Nikon D7000, Walimex (Ssamyang) 14mm f/2.8, 30s at f/3.2, ISO 1600. Stacked in Startrails, edited in Photoshop (airplane removal) and Lightroom.
Yet another month has passed and the Moon joins Venus in the morning sky.
The California Nebula (NGC_1499) is a HII emission region in the constellation Perseus, it was discoverd by E.E. Barnard in 1884 on long exposure plates.
Because of the red color and it’s faintness it is usually only visible in photographs.
I used my unmodified Nikon D7000 camera in combination with the Nikon AF-Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 for this photograph. 11 individual exposures of 120 seconds at f/2.8 were combined using Regim by Andreas Rörig. Additional adjustments were made in Adobe Lightroom.
Last night I did some last tests in preparation for upcoming travel.
With the warm last few weeks it feels as if Winter has already passed and Spring is on it’s way
