Know it has been quite a few submissions lately, but with a new toy in hand ( d800 ) everyday is like christmas. :D

Was out shooting the aurora when I stumbled upon this one tree by itself walking along the shoreline, so worked a little with the scene to find a good angle.

Out of 16 shots, this was the only one I got a shooting star on. :)


Shot with Nikon D800, 14-24 f/2.8 @ 14mm F 5.6 , Iso 2500, 25 seconds.

Almost wants to make me live in Norway. Too cold though so I'll just have to continue to look at your pictures. Awesome work.

This makes me wish I knew about astronomy so I had an idea what I was looking at. Absolutely beautiful. I would hang it on my wall if I had one!

if i may...
right next to the tree, there's a small losenge, like an old-fashioned flying kite: that's Dolphinus constellation.
going up, you're travelling through Cygnus, about the down end of the shooting star trail. there are dark clouds nearby that define the bright region as the North America Nebula.
if you follow the shooting star up left, and a bit further up, you find a bright blurry thing, different from surrounding stars: that's the magnificent Andromedae galaxy, the sister of our own galaxy (the Milky Way).
Finally, at the top of the picture, where the Milky Way seems to weaken, is where Cassiopea constellation is to be found (the big W, but it's not entirely visible).
many other things, that would need a partially transparent layer above this picture to spot different marvels that this amazing picture reveals.

I dont know much about astronomy, I am interested in it, but my knowledge is limited.
I rely on forecast from other people with knowhow and then I bring my camera out and take my chances and hope for the best, sometimes I get lucky. :D

Beautiful shot. I really like the way the Milky Way comes out. It looks like a torrent of glowing rain.

Yeah I remember when I edited this and started to extract the details, I was like "what the h... ?", just so many stars, so love my camera, that is one thing thats for sure. :D

It's certainly a keeper. I can't wait until I get to try out a Milky Way shot with my new camera, but that'll probably have to wait until at least October of next year. Stupid work. If only I didn't require food or shelter to live.

yeah work and work, it can sometimes get in the way of things, but its necessary.
And shooting pictures of the milky way is never boring. :D

Would it be possible to take a shot like this with a 10-24 f/3.5-5.6 lens? And isn't it necessary to find a very dark place? :)
Reply
:icontrichardsen:
Trichardsen Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Professional Photographer
Yeah it would be possible, but it also depends on the iso sensitivity of your camera, like the shot Starshower I did that with the nikon d90 which has a iso sens of 977, so I could max clean up an image of 1600 iso, you need to shoot at high iso when doing shots like these, pref around 3200.

And yes a dark place is vital, you want as little light pollution as possible, and it doesnt really help just going to a high altitude, you need normally to get about 1 hour away from any town/city.
