Dark Nights by Graham Gaunt. In the quiet dark of the night you can hear with alarming clarity. The cameras ability to record what I can faintly see is even more alarming, some of the things I hear are entirely made up. It's hard to distinguish what might be in the shadows or wether they hold any real definition. The night gradually takes on its own shape, soft and hard edges begin to reveal themselves.
Milky Way Over the Bungle Bungles (Sept 11 2012) Image Credit & Copyright: Mike Salway Explanation: Which part of this picture do you find more interesting -- the land or the sky? Advocates for the land might cite the beauty of the ancient domes of the Bungle Bungle Range in Western Australia. These picturesque domes appear as huge layered beehives and are made of sandstones and conglomerates deposited over 350 million years ago. #astronomy #space #MilkyWay
This striking explosion of cosmic color is the galaxy DDO But whatever its aesthetic merits, it's nothing special in scientific terms — indeed, it's rather unflatteringly termed a dwarf irregular galaxy. It's also one of the loneliest galaxies around.
Photographed over the course of three weeks in Johannisholm, Sweden. Dec 2012 - Jan 2013 With the sun setting around 3-4 pm each evening, this gave alot of opportunities to shoot at night. Most of the time it would be waiting for just the right weather conditions, to capture the moon rise, and the Aurora.
