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.

PLEASE VIEW ON BLACK!

To be amongst some of the oldest living trees in the world is quite a unique experience. My night at Patriarch Grove in particular was unforgettable. The moonless sky was like nothing I had ever seen before, and the beautiful white rock reflected all of the star glow. This glow provided natural ambient light for not only the photographs, but also to help us see where we were going without LED headlamps. The green cast you are seeing in the sky is called “airglow” and it is natural to the photograph. I was able to take this photograph with one exposure and some post processing, although I did not light up the tree or do any exposure blending. This is one RAW frame with color correction, contrast, noise reduction, and selective dodging and burning. Words can not express how beautiful the sky was up in the White Mountains of California, however, I hope this photograph does some justice to what I saw there that night.

“Delicate Discovery”

One of the many images from my night at Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. It was an interesting shooting experience for me. Most of the time when I shoot the Milky Way I am alone or with one other person, we usually do not run into any other photographers during the night. At Delicate Toby and I shared the space with over 15 other photographers who all wanted a turn to “light paint” the arch. It made it had for me, as I usually shoot with only ambient light. If I need more light in the foreground I will usually try to do long 2-5 minute exposures. Overall it was a really great experience, the wait for the spot to be empty was incredibly worth it!

The Milky Way galaxy makes a dramatic background for Corona Arch, located in Bootlegger Canyon just outside of Moab, Utah. The opening of Corona Arch is 140 feet tall and 105 feet wide. During this photography workshop the arch was lit with an orange LED to match the surrounding landscape. There was quite a bit of airglow in the sky this evening. This image is a blend of two shots, one for the sky and one for the foreground. Processed and blended via Lightroom 5 & Photoshop CS5.

Total poser shot in Bridger Teton Wilderness. Pretty sky though…and those are gnats in the strobe light. At least they aren’t mosquitoes.

New on 500px : Galactic Tracks by miketaylorphoto by miketaylorphoto

This is a 9 shot panorama covering 180 degrees of sky view from North (left) to South (right) while looking East. Featuring the Spring arc of our Milky Way galaxy, this was photographed at Unity Pond, Maine along the unused train tracks. There is a bit of green airglow in the sky and the orange hue on the horizon is light pollution. This image was processed through Lightroom 5 & Photoshop CS5 and stitched together via PTGui.

New on 500px : Breathe by Shainblum by Shainblum

“Breath”

Please View On Black!!!!

The Mono Lake Tufa Towers really trigger my creativity. Its a place filled with an endless maze of photographic compositions. The best part is its extremely dark skies. Walking around feels like another planet, its a place where you can stop thinking about the everyday worries and just enjoy the alien landscape complemented by vivid star filled skies.

Thanks for checking it out, if you enjoy the image please do me a favor and share it around. 🙂
