How did I miss this the first time around? I don't know, but I am very glad I got to see these. I love the entire series. I know how hard it can be to pick what is going to be in the frame and what has to be left out. I do favor #3 though. The closer up of the Aurora is a close second though. Thanks for sharing. This is something I will never get to see first hand and it is an pleasure to see what you have done. Good work.

One of the reasons I'm planning an astronomy trip to Atacama, Chile. Top center is the "coal sack", not visible from the USA.

This is a GREAT picture!

Not a "10 out of 10" - rather a "100 out of 100"!

Putting this right into my Screensaver folder.

About astrophotographer

astrophotographer

I am very keen on astrophotography, atmospherics and nature photography.The passion for photography has been with me for 60 odd years and is still as strong as ever.My first camera was a 127 format given to me when I was 8yrs old, my father showing us how to develop film, in the bathtub, needless to say it became stained much to my mothers annoyance.I guess my profession, Radiography, was a natural way to combine taking pictures with a hobby, most radiographers in my training years had cameras so we all took photos and compared them, always striving to outdo each other.I have always had an interest in Infra-Red photography and we used to play around with IR film in the B&W days, of course we have advanced so much in the digital world of IR I had my camera converted for IR only...it was a bonus as the exposures are as if it was a white light camera. Fast shutter speeds and the resulting images are sometime bad but mostly intriguing. A surprise celebration awaited me at work the other day, to mark my 50 years in Radiography, a long time in one profession, but an enjoyable time and would I choose the same path in life, yes I would. I have met many wonderful people even though their time on this planet was limited, they have been a person I will remember fondly.At last I have acquired a Canon 5D Mkii. It has been a dream of mine for a while to have a full frame digital camera. The wide angle lenses are great and cover the 180 degrees I have longed for when photographing the aurora. The definition if the photos is quite amazing and I am very pleased with the results. Keep an eye out for some more photos.
