Tag Archives: Milky Way
My first Milky Way Rising image of 2013 which includes my favorite part of the galactic disk which includes Scorpius Stingers: Shaula and Lesath. The past 8 weeks or so here have been marked w/ snowy, grey, and cloudy days with short windows of opportunity which have naturally conflicted with my schedule. This night was no real exception w/ enough cloud cover clearing at around 3am to get this shot.

Come down to the Denver Photo Art Gallery (833 Santa Fe – Denver, CO) from 6 – 9+PM where I will be hosting my Photo Gallery. BYOB, come chat, take in the gallery including several other amazing photographers (many of whom will also be there), or just plain get out of the house!
Milky Way stretches over Summit County in the White River National Forest. This photo is being hosted for an Astronomy Photo of the Day Submission.
I am proud to say that my photo Milky Way over Mayflower Gulch won first place in a “User Voting” Summer Photo Contest on the John Fielders Colorado Facebook page. As many of you reading this know, John Fielder is my biggest inspiration. He also wrote the book that I used when first learning landscape photography, Photographing the Landscape: The Art of Seeing. I highly recommend this book to anybody who wants to seriously pursue photography.
July 15, 2012 – Summit County, Colorado
This Stellar Tuesday I bring Milky Way Panoramic over the Ten Mile Range as seen from Shrine Pass. The lights on the left are coming from Frisco, Copper Mountain, and I-70. The softer light on the right is from the more distant town of Breckenridge, Colorado.
About the Shot: I had a bunch of family in town this past week who were hoping to get a chance to see the Milky Way. With the current position of the band of Clouds, Dust, and Stars I chose Shrine Pass for its broad view of the sky which is not always easy to find in the mountains. The Milky Way stretched out completely across our field of view and I only captures a small bit of it here. It was still relatively early at 10:30 pm for viewing the night sky and being so the sky has a softer glow.
Stellar Tuesday June 25, 2012:
This weeks Stellar Tuesday is brought to you in cooperation with the Antzl Project: Photo to Canvas Company, designed for a 32 x 48 Large Format Gallery Wrapped Canvas. (I LOVE THIS!) For purchasing info please click on the photo.
Milky Way Rising: Just another moonless night in the White River National Forest. I initially set up to shoot a different subject but when I noticed my favorite part of the Milky Way rising over some beautiful trees w/ lots of depth, I quickly changed my composition. The night was crisp, clear, and I was far from light pollution, ideal for shooting Stars. To expose the subject, I wanted to use a fast aperture, a high sensitivity, and a relatively short shutter for Night-Time exposures. As always, I shoot in Raw and do my post-processing in Lightroom.
Stellar Tuesday – 6/18/12 – Milky Way Rising over Clinton Gulch: Summit County, Colorado. I had been planning to capture this shot since last year and it was almost perfect, except for the lingering light of an unseen twilight. As Astrophotographers often do, I just have to deal. Ideally for me, I would have preferred this shot 1 week earlier so that the Milky Way was more prominent in a darker sky but the result with a lingering twilight seems very interesting to me.
The light in the left hand portion of this 8 photo panoramic is from the town of Breckenridge, Colorado.
This panoramic is pre-sized for a full frame, made in Colorado (As 90% of everything I do is, working on 100%), 20 x 60 Canvas by the Antzl Project. It can also be arranged for a Canvas w/ Graphic Design (or Antzlfication) at no additional charge.
