BLEND/TRACKED “Summit Fever”

Having climbed Mont Blanc (15,780 ft/4.804m) via the classic Trois Monts (Three Mountains) route the day before I was pretty sure I wouldn’t have it in me to wake up at 1 am to take pictures. But since this was our last night on the mountain, my girlfriend and I mustered up the energy to wake up, cross the glacier into La Vallée Blanche (The White Valley) and watch the first mountaineers start their way up the mountain.

The mountain in the picture is Mt. Blanc du Tacul, the first of three mountains one must climb to make it to the top of Mt. Blanc via this route. The second is Mont Maudit and of course Mont Blanc (both not pictured), the highest peak in Europe. On the right of the picture is the Refuge des Cosmiques, where mountaineers usually sleep before making summit bids. And of course the lights on the mountain are teams of mountaineers ascending the mountain.

One of the most surprising things to me about taking pictures here is that the glow of the town Chamonix can be seen on the mountains face and the exposure of the sky. Crazy what a little light pollution will do.

All in all, very happy we woke up and getting to do some photography was a nice way to cap the trip!

#tbt Once we found this little shelter with a fire pit while night hiking along the north shore. The peace that is found out in the woods under a starlit sky is like no other.

I guess since it’s Thursday.... #TBT to last months #thegreatmilkywaychase trip around Oregon and part of Washington with @_player0ne from Florida.  It was his first time to see so many stars.  We hit up 6+ different locations that week to gaze at the stars.  Our last night we ran into fellow Milky Way Chaser, Jeff aka @jmtram we all ended up driving around all night trying to get away from the clouds that were hiding the Milky Way at Lost Lake.  Some how I was able to find a hill near the town Hood River that looked over the whole city.  There was almost too much light pollution to get the Core goodness.  But the core faught back and didn’t let us down.  We left this spot and drove closer to Mt Hood  to find a different vantage point.  But that’s a different story... 📷 used @my_sonya7ii -

This campsite was a bit too exposed, but c’mon look at that view.
This campsite was a bit too exposed, but c’mon look at that view.
Last weekend on my way to the Southwest I stopped at The Bonneville Salt Flats to check it out and spend some time shooting the stars and battling light pollution from Wendover. Having never been here I pulled on to the lake bed around midnight like I owned the place I had no clue that it’s not a hard packed racing slick but more like a muddy marshy bog with a crust of salt over the top. I drove around throwing a rooster tail of salt from my truck for a bit until I settled on this fairly untouched foreground. I hung out on the marsh for a few hours shooting the sky it was when I left that things got interesting it was 3am and my truck was having a hell of a time driving in the stuff my tires were tread less racing slicks my wheel wells were full of salt and slowing down the tires and I was in 4 wheel drive going 10 miles an hour pedal to the floor and about to overheat, after doing a zig-zag pattern across the flats I finally found some harder packed salt to finish my escape on. The next day when I’m telling a story to a friend I find out that people get stuck out there all the time and “Salt Flats” towing makes a killing out there. Apparently they’re worried about the flats turning back into the lake due to a raising water table, anyway if you go use caution. It is pretty cool out there though. Have a blessed day friends. .

I love this little volcano, it has always been my favorite of the Cascade Range. Took this short LE during a camping trip. We had a guest so I didn’t want to be rude and be all into my camera instead of in the moment. .

Incredible in its scenery, Joshua Tree was the ultimate playground for sky photography. Its Dr. Seuss-like trees, rocky formations, clear skies, and warm weather left me in the desert for hours capturing the sunset and ultimately, this shot of the Milky Way. The colors of the nearby towns complimented the violet hue of the sky and the green of the Joshua Trees. .

While I'm still learning astrophotography (as well as generally photography, obviously) I'm happy to see the progress I've made. This one isnt the best shot I got of the milky way, but I enjoy the concept and composition.

I never get tired of watching the stars, brooding over the thought of what lies beyond. There are not many dark site locations in the east coast. Just got lucky to know that there is a place(Great Meadows) in Virginia where I can watch the Milky Way rise up the horizon. This month is special as we can clearly see the planet Mars in the sky left of the milkyway cloud. Just a crazy thought what if there is a vortex starting at the center of the planet Mars, this is how it looks😝 #milkywaychasers @tracyleephotos #nightscaper #milkyway #mars #sonyalpha #virginia #dcchasers #igdc #streetmeetdc #mydccool #acreativedc #igmasters #visualsoflife #photooftheday #startrailchasers #travelphotography #way2ill #thegreatmilkywaychase #awesome_earthpix #moodygrams #heatercentral #visualambassadors #agameoftones #artofvisuals #theimaged #earthofficial #ourplanetdaily#pnw #nightscape

The bells at night are really something else. One day I’ll get there while the Milky Way is lined up.

@knightysphotography with the amazing milky way shot - ————————————————————————
Had one of the best nights over the weekend with @jared.anderton. Shot sunset, blue hour then the Milky Way while drinking the whole time. 😂 So many good conversations and laughs. Really needed a night like that. One thing I absolutely love about shooting the night sky is that feeling of being this tiny little speck of dust in the universe. It really puts you into perspective and by almighty, the night sky is a beautiful thing. Hope you enjoy the other side of the Milky Way that’s not shot a lot. ————————————————————————

Celestial Eruption of Mount Doom ~ Milky Way core alignment with Mt Ngauruhoe, New Zealand. Congratulations to Evan McKay. Mount Ngauruhoe is a semi-active conical volcano that last erupted in 1977. || Please show support to our guest artists by visiting their IG gallery.

TECHNIQUE & EXIF: I had planned this shot from the top of Pukeonake (a small volcanic cone) and it was meant to be only a "blend" because I had aligned the Milky Way with the top of Mt Ngauruhoe (Mount Doom) using Photopills. Unfortunately, after I had shot the sky frames I realized my foreground was not what I wanted, and that I wasn't even on the right side of the mountain. It was so dark that I couldn't see what was in front of me so I was relying on the camera to give me more information about my position. After that, I moved the tripod about 100m to get a better view of the foreground in front of Pukeonake and composited them together. I had actually succeeded in getting that star cluster popping right out of the top of the mountain in camera, so I kept it that way in the composite.

During my stay in Sembalun, i noticed that the land infront of my hotel which is seemingly boring in the day suddenly turns interesting at night due to the lighting from neighbouring light pollution and the whole place just seems like a good idea to do some astrophotography. Moreover when i checked for the orientation of the milkyway, i realised that it is exactly behind the walls and thus here i am with a led camping light in my hand, standing there posing as the subject of this frame. Haha

The Antennae Galaxies (NGC 4038 [left] and NGC 4039 [right] or Caldwell 60/61) are a pair of merging galaxies, 45 million light-years away in the southern constellation Corvus, which are part of the NGC 4038 group with five other galaxies.

Rich deposits of neon, magnesium, and silicon were discovered from the Chandra X-ray Observatory analysis of the Antennae. These elements are among those that form the building blocks for habitable planets.

The Antennae Galaxies have two long tails of stars, gas and dust, thrown out of the galaxies as a result of the collision. During the course of the collision, billions of stars will be formed. Astronomers have recently discovered over a thousand bright young star clusters – the result of a burst of star formation triggered by the collision.

The nuclei of the two galaxies are joining to become one giant elliptical galaxy. Two supernovae have been discovered in the galaxies: SN 2004GT and SN 2007sr.

About 1.2 billion years ago, the Antennae were two separate galaxies. NGC 4039 was a spiral galaxy, somewhat larger than NGC 4038, a barred spiral galaxy.
About 900 million years ago the Antennae began to approach one another, and 600 million years ago the Antennae passed through each other. Some 300 million years ago, the Antennae’s stars began to be released from both galaxies.
Today the two streamers of ejected stars extend far beyond the original galaxies, making the antennae shape.
Within 400 million years, the Antennae’s nuclei will collide and become a single core with stars, gas, and dust around it.

-JELLY FISH NEBULA-
Lying in the constellation of Gemini, IC443 is a galactic supernova remnant, a star that could have exploded as many as 30,000 years ago. Its globular appearance has earned the celestial structure the moniker of the Jellyfish Nebula. Pictured to the upper left of the Jellyfish Nebula is a much fainter background area of nebulosity, which is actually a large cloud of mostly molecular hydrogen gas and dust.. ‘The Jellyfish’ is a convoluted tangle of gaseous filaments rapidly expanding away from the initial explosion.

Ghost crabs of the OSV zone Assateague Island National Seashore.  Having planned poorly and not realized that the beach was closed 5 km in for endangered bird nesting, I at least noticed all of these ghost crabs on my return trip eating sand crabs as they darted in and out with the waves.  They were elusive little guys and took countless attempts to get close enough for a shot with a wide angle lens. 📷 #sonya7iii

Abo Ruins & Milky Way 
Had fun last night shooting the milky way at Abo Ruins! Unfortunately the sky never cleared completely so we were shooting through a thin layer of clouds. I am trying to learn how to use low level lighting and am happy with how this came out.
