100% BETTER ON BLACK!!!

After a long headache and 2 hours on a twisty road we finally arrived at a beautiful meadow in Mt Laguna. As the sunlight fell we were graced with a beautifully vivid night sky. My friends Dan Douglas, Brian Hawkins and Daniel Tomlinson had a blast sharing stories and setting up multiple axis Timelapse shots. As the 4 hour Timelapses were running I decided to capture this 180 degree panorama.

Since I know you guys love the technical details here they are, this Panorama is 15 vertical images taken with the Canon 6D and Nikon 14-24 F/2.8
EXIF: 20Sec F/2.8 ISO6400

BEST ON BLACK!

Here is a new photograph from one of my favorite spots in California, Santa Ynez. The rolling hills with giant oak trees makes for some awesome foreground with the Milky Way. The bright spots on the horizon is not the sun setting, but actually the Light Pollution from Los Angeles county. I hope you guys enjoy the photograph.

PLEASE VIEW ON BLACK!

I shot this photography yesterday on the Mendocino Coastline. Me and my buddy Griffin spontaneously packed up the car at 10pm and took the 3 hour drive on the twisty 1North highway. About 1 hour into the drive we were close to empty on gas and attempted to find a nearby station. After aimlessly searching Google Maps with almost no service, we stopped in to ask the front desk of the only motel in the area. The man at the front desk told us the only gas station open was back 30 minutes the direction we came. If we had kept going we would have been stuck all night with no service in the middle of nowhere.

Long story short, we ended up at the costal trail at about 2am and proceeded to hike down some minor cliffs. Once we hit the beach we were graced with the amazingly vivid Galactic Core over the ocean. I took the panorama out of excitement. I hope you all enjoy it.

New on 500px : Noctambulism by miketaylorphoto by miketaylorphoto

An incredible amount of green and a bit of maroon colored airglow are prominent in this 16 image night sky panorama which features the full Milky Way arc and covers 240 degrees of view from North (left) to South (right). I centered this image around one of the iconic gnarly trees that clings to the top of the canyon wall at Dead Horse Point State Park, Utah. The bright light on the horizon to the left of the tree is light pollution coming from the town of Moab. This image was stitched via PTGui and processed through Lightroom 5 (twice, once for the foreground and once for the sky) and Photoshop CS5.

Noctambulism is another word for sleepwalking.

(Lots of shadow detail, PLEASE VIEW ON BLACK)

Here is a new image from Delicate Arch in Arches National Park Utah. The park has some incredible rock formations matched with a vivid night sky. Its a simple and very well shot composition, however I really wanted to bring my own take to the shot. I hope you all enjoy the image. 🙂

Nature & Man: Iridium Flare, Milky Way, Clouds and Light Pollution

What is an Iridium flare?

Iridium flares are often mistaken for meteors because of their notable bright flashes of light in the night sky but they are actually caused by a specific group of satellites that orbit our planet. An Iridium flare is a specific type of satellite flare that is made when the antennas of an Iridium communication satellite reflect sunlight directly onto the surface of the Earth. The satellites are in a near-polar orbit at an altitude of 485 miles and their orbital period is approximately 100 minutes with a velocity of 16,800 miles per hour. The uniqueness of Iridium flares is that the spacecraft emits ‘flashes’ of very bright reflected light that sweep in narrow focused paths across the surface of the Earth. An Iridium communication satellite’s Main Mission Antenna is a silver-coated Teflon antenna array that mimics near-perfect mirrors – this array is angled at 40 degrees away from the axis of the body of the satellite. This can provide a specular reflection of the Sun’s disk, periodically causing a dazzling glint of reflected sunlight. At the Earth’s surface, the specular reflection is probably less than 50 miles wide, so each flare can only be viewed from a fairly small area. The flare duration can last from anywhere between 5 to 20 seconds and can easily be seen by the naked eye.

This image is one frame from a time lapse of the Milky Way & other features of the night sky in motion against a silhouetted foreground. Photographed from an undisclosed location in Western Maine, this shot includes quite a bit of light pollution & some fast moving cloud cover. Most of the light pollution in this image is coming from Farmington, Maine which is about 35 miles from this location. The footage from this time lapse will be featured in my upcoming short film Shot In The Dark.

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 : Dead Horse Point at Night by miketaylorphoto by miketaylorphoto

The Milky Way rises in the Southeast as the quarter moon slowly sets in the Southwest, lighting up the foreground area and creating a ‘blue hour’ glow in the sky over the red rock hues of Dead Horse Point State Park in Utah. This is one frame from a 2 hour time lapse, processed through Lightroom 5 & Photoshop CS5.

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.
