New on 500px : Nature’s Delicate Balance by MikeBerenson by MikeBerenson

In life, there are a lot of places where we can see a balance. There’s a balance between artificial and natural lighting and another one between day and night. But then on another level, there’s a balance of life between humanity and nature. And then there’s the balance between our planet earth and all the external forces that affect it.

For me, it’s all a delicate balance that I love to show off in my photography. This image was captured at the beginning of twilight (before sunrise) from Delicate Arch during one of my night photography workshops in Arches National Park.

New on 500px : Milky Way Pull At Balanced Rock by MikeBerenson by MikeBerenson

Milky Way skies have a certain magnetism that most any night photographer has experienced. Every spring it gets us up early and every summer, it keeps us up into the late hours of the night – all to get a glimpse and a capture of the wonderful galaxy we live in.

In contrast to the draw to capture the Milky Way skies, I thought this scene with Balanced Rock seemingly getting pulled toward the Milky Way was especially interesting. And with the summer night skies fast approaching, I know I’m feeling that same Milky Way Pull…

New on 500px : Silhouette Curves In The Starry Night by MikeBerenson by MikeBerenson

If you ask me, Irene shows her best side on first approach. From the first time I scouted Lake Irene before I did workshops there, I was drawn to the way the trees framed this view of reflected beauty ahead as the trail first reaches the lake. On this night photography workshop in Rocky Mountain National Park, I encouraged my students to be patient while some wet weather finished rolling through the park. I did some in-field training and we headed to the first spot on my list – Lake Irene. Shortly after we arrived, the clouds cleared and the Milky Way finished rotating into perfect position… There is a lot more to this post… see the rest of the backstory, how I got the shot, and get free wallpaper from http://ift.tt/1tZAcTx _______________________________ It’s time to get ready for some awesome milky way skies.
