New on 500px : Temple milky way and meteor by wildlifemoments by wildlifemoments

Panoramic of the milky way arch at the Temple of Antas, Sardinia, with a meteor. 12 shots.

The Temple of Antas is an ancient Carthaginian-Roman temple in the commune of Fluminimaggiore, southern Sardinia, Italy. It is located in an area colonised by the Carthaginians and then by the Romans, attracted by its iron and lead deposits.

It consists of a Roman temple, under whose steps are the remains of the Carthaginian one, which was dedicated to the god Sid Addir, a later incarnation of the local god Sardus Pater Babai, the main male divinity of the Nuragic civilization.

I took this while scouting for an upcoming private tour. The sky was amazing that night. It was probably the brightest core of the Milky Way I have ever seen. That made developing this shot really easy – no need to work to pull out the deep space colors – they were already there in the camera.

I hope you enjoy!

New on 500px : Midnight Vision by evanthomasphoto by evanthomasphoto

This photo was taken just below Moonlight Lake in Sabrina Basin just outside Bishop, CA. I’ve been in the area a few times before and always wanted to visit this waterfall, but it always seemed like too big of a detour at the time. Since we dedicated this trip to photography we made sure we got there. We left our camp at Sailor Lake shorly after midnight and headed over to the waterfall. When we came over the last little granite outcropping, the Milky Way and starry sky over the waterfall was quite a sight to behold. A magical place.

View on black!

There are few things I enjoy more than shooting a beautiful clear night sky, but when greeted by a dreamlike alien world such as Mono Lake, suddenly the experience is elevated. Here’s a new one, it’s a simple exposure, subtle and dark. I really hope you guys enjoy viewing as much as I did shooting it.

New on 500px : Stardust by Shainblum by Shainblum

Better on black.

This was one of my first Astro panoramas taken from Mount Figueroa outside of Santa Barbara, California. The night was filled with stargazing and astrophotography. It was a night I will remember for the rest of my life. The beautiful bank of fog glistened under the starlight. Shortly after this photo was taken the fog bank rolled higher and engulfed us. Just like that the moment was over.

Thanks for checking it out guys!

Better On Black!

After a rainy, cloudy, and stormy day near the Grand Canyon, Toby Harriman and I found a nice spot to camp. After hours of overcast weather we started to see a big opening in the clouds. Guess what it was full of? ….STARS! I took a few shots of the Galaxy, it was a beautiful night.

New on 500px : Turret Arch Reflections by miketaylorphoto by miketaylorphoto

A rare puddle from an afternoon shower makes for nice reflections along the walkway to Turret Arch in Arches National Park, Moab Utah. The moon came up as a sliver behind me and offered just the right amount of illumination on the arch and the foreground at 4 AM. The light pollution on the horizon below the Milky Way is coming from the town of Moab. This image is a single exposure that was processed through Lightroom 5 twice – once for the foreground and once for the sky – and blended through Photoshop CS5.
