Eclipses, starscapes, and soon deep sky images. This is a newer area that I’m playing with, the solar eclipse and some nightscapes in okefenokee swamp have peaked my interest in this area and soon I will be playing with tracking mounts and stacking images to see what I can see in the nights sky.
Canada Day weekend and we had a beautiful evening with friends on Georgian Bay. Nice to have some time for a few wide angle night shots.
Night sky and the channel entrance for kayaking into the Okefenokee Swamp.
Total Solar Eclipse seen from Lake Robinson, SC
The eclipse was pretty spectacular today, didn't know what to expect but certainly enjoyed the whole show.
This shot is built from a progression of shots that I did throughout the eclipse. I have more shots of the beginning of the eclipse but the clouds came in near the end so I thought I would stick with a semi symmetric set.
After a crazy day of rain the skies cleared for a beautiful night of camping in Okefenokee swamp.
Nothing but stars to see and the crashing of waves to hear. The camera can make 30 seconds into an instant.
Beautiful cool night camping at Edisto beach, SC. Night sky was clear so I worked with the lights in the park against the palms since there is no real chance for perfect darkness.
The Full eclipse lasted for more than a half hour, this was taken near the end as the top left started to become brighter again.
progression through the super wolf blood moon eclipse…that is a mouthful.
