One morning in Wellington I had a chance to meet Mark Gee who is one of the world’s best Astrophotographers. Last year he won Astrophotographer of the Year and one of his award winning images was taken from Cape Palliser. He was kind enough to give me some tips on how to get to this incredible location and told me that if the sky stays clear it will be an experience I will never forget. I had the entire area to myself and for the first time ever I was able to see the Milky Way with almost no artificial light to interfere. (Minus the lighthouse of course) This is my version of his famous photograph.

This is a panoramic comprising 12 photographs shot portrait with a Carl Zeiss 15mm on a Canon 5D Mark III.

I was definitely looking at a different direction as the milky way, but soon I realized the beam from my headlamp was parallel to it, and they are like two diagonal bars across the sky.

Best On Black!

Here is a new photo from the La Jolla Coves, one of my all time favorite seascape locations. I was about knee deep in water when this was taken and a few waves came in and almost took my camera out. By the end of the shot I was waist deep in water, my camera is fine and the experience was amazing.

Thanks guys for taking a look at the photo

New on 500px : Reflecting In The Early Hours by markg by markg

You know you’re in for a good session of astrophotography when you set your camera up next to your car and can see the Milky Way galaxy reflecting in it. This shot was taken in the early hours above Hanmer Springs on the South Island of New Zealand. The glow off in the distance is from Christchurch, which is over 130km further south.

I shot right up to 6am that morning, before jumping into the back of the car for some much needed warmth and sleep!

New on 500px : The Roses of Pemaquid Point by Jon_Secord by Jon_Secord

“The Roses of Pemaquid Point”

This is easily one of my favorite photos from my 3 week trip to Maine. These roses, Rosa Rugosa- also called Beach or Dune Roses, were everywhere along the coast. To say I was excited about this composition would be a huge understatement, and while I was taking the foreground exposures the moon started to rise over the horizon to my left, providing some beautiful light.

Such an amazing lighthouse and the geology on Pemaquid Point was some of the most interesting I have ever seen. Some of you may recognize this lighthouse- it was featured on the Maine state quarter
