23 Jul 2018. Planets at play around the Milky Way
I don’t have much time to write up a description for today’s post. It’s my birthday and I’ve been having time with my family after a busy day at work. 🌌
So, briefly, Mars is bright and orange up at the top-right of the shot. Jupiter is the big white “star” at the bottom left, getting very close to the orange glow of the lights of the city of Canberra, 120 km away (75 mi). The central band and galactic core of the Milky Way is the big stain crossing from left to right of the scene. The planet Saturn is in there as well, a little above the central band. I have pushed some of the processing settings beyond what I normally use, to highlight the details of the dust lanes around the centre of the Milky Way. 📷
I used three overlapping images, each shot in portrait orientation, to produce this final single image. Each of those three photos was taken with Canon EOS 6D Mk II, Samyang 14mm @ f/2.8, 30 sec @ ISO 6400.

“Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in our troubled world.” -Etty Hillesum **Image created in one single exposure- no photoshop, SOOC (straight out of camera) with exception of crop for Instagram sizing 📸

St. Sophia Cathedral, Harbin
St. Sophia Cathedral in Harbin is the largest Eastern Orthodox Church in the Far East. It is 53.3 meters (175 feet) high and occupies an area of 721 square meters (0.18 acres). In November, 1996, it was listed as one of the Key Cultural Relics under State Protection. Half a year later, the city government repaired it and renamed it as Harbin Art Gallery. It is a respectable landmark for Harbiners and for tourism.
The St. Sophia Cathedral has a complex history. Shortly after the Boxer Rebellion (1899-1901), the Russian built the church of timber in March, 1907. Then, the Russian rebuilt it using masonry and timber four years later. The onset of a second reconstruction by Russian was marked on September 23rd, 1923, and a ceremony was held to celebrate laying the corner stone. It was completed on November 25th, 1932, after nine years, and was hailed as a monumental work of art.
