Finally the new moon come. The weather forecast promised clear sky from clouds, so I had to find a place to realize a shot of the Milky Way, because in these cases it’s more visible. So, in the afternoon I went to the volcano Etna volcano and I started the long path that leads to the “Rifugio Galvarina”. Six and a half kilometers alternating between forests and solidified lava where you could admire the beauty of the nature.
When I arrived, even though there was no light pollution, I was not able to see the Milky Way as I would expected, so I searched a good position to realize a startrail. I photographed before the ground, then the sky and through Photoshop I fused them together adjusting finally some other parameters.

McWay Falls, Big Sur, California

While waiting for the Milky Way to rise a couple weeks ago I decided to play with some star trails–not usually my cup of tea but thought it was the perfect opportunity to let the D800E I was borrowing do its thing while I was sprawled out on the ground, listening to the crashing waves and watching for shooting stars.

Every now and then I like these shorter star trails, and once the Milky Way rose the 45 minutes dedicated to this shot was enough. I feel night photography is often even more open-ended than general landscape work, and sometimes I embrace the hell out of light pollution. A large boat was making its way north and added the warm glow, the Milky Way rose in the middle of the trails on the left and because of personal taste I use really cold white balances when shooting the night sky–it just happens to fit into my work flow. And I think it added to this wanna-be-Alex-Grey-esque psychedelic scene.

New on 500px : Moraine Dream by JustinSinclair by JustinSinclair

Night sky at Moraine Lake Banff Alberta. I like this feel and look of vortex star trails. I adjusted this photo in Lightroom and Photoshop and used levels and curves to make the stars brighter. As in the original image you can’t really see them. Other adjustments like mid tones and dodge and burn can be seen in this photo.

This location is great for time-lapse makers and night sky lovers. So I recommend going to this place on a clear night! Thanks for viewing and don’t forget to give a like because it really helps me grow and keeps me motivated to post more of my work.
