New on 500px : My Office View by shaneblack by shaneblack

While the hike to this spot was miserable from carrying too much gear, I can’t argue with this view. Really loving my Nemo Galaxi 2P tent!

p.s. I recommend viewing on black!

New on 500px : Freedom! by sparias by sparias

I captured this image while on Hawk Hill, near the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco.
I have always liked the way fog gives different intensity to the color of the mountains, and i was trying to capture that while a kid stepped into the frame and extended his arms to breathe in the magnificence of the location.
Lucky moment 🙂

I was surprised to be able to capture the moon and the Milky Way in the same frame with a single shot. This was imaged at Sequoia National Park, CA.

New on 500px : Super Moon Rising by DonSmith1 by DonSmith1

Yesterday evening I captured the first of 3 Super Full Moon rises near my central California home. This moon is 14% larger and 30% brighter than an average moon due to its proximity to earth with its elliptical orbit (about 30,000 miles closer). There will be another one next month and again in September.

But that is not what makes this moon look so large. It is a visual trick where your mind is comparing the relative size of the moon to a known object (in this case, an oak tree). BTW – the moon is no larger on the horizon than it is when we see it high in the sky – again, it’s just an illusion. For more on this, Google: Ponzo Illusion.

If you would like to learn more about moon and night photography, please consider taking on of my workshops or contact me about a private workshop: Don Smith Photo Workshops
