I remember when I came to #newzealand it took me a while to get used to it’s star view 🌌 It is completely different, no mama bear constellation on top 😢 Instead there is southern cross, that looks a bit similar to it 😍 and Orion is visible, but in different place from where it used to be in Russia 🙌 #starview#southerncross#nzsky#nzstars#nz#travelblog

...And so it had cleared enough to show a beautiful milky way... I quickly setup near the tent for this test shot to check what was up with the sky. ... aaand then the rain swept in and hammered down loudly all night.
If the weather had behaved it would have been a nice sky I think with good clarity in the milky way core out there well away from any artificial light and some nice red airglow. I'd have gone out on the point there and aimed to line up some channels and rushing waves with the setting galactic core... another time.
Right on new moon in August, with scant snow at 1450m so easy access and cosy sleeping under the stars. This is all buried now by spring southwest storms.
No starlight reflections in the Lake? That's because for the first half of the night an icy 15+ knots ruffled the surface. I was head to toe in down storm suit but my eyeballs were freezing so I was thinking a pair of clear snow goggles would be nice!
Pondering what it's all about up at the old stone circle on the badlands at the base of Farewell Spit.
Because I'm on an airglow/chemiluminescence theme a bit lately, I trawled back through ancient raw files and settled on this night, easily the third greenest I've seen. I went back to first principles, a ground up re edit of this 2x7 mosaic. These are the only images I've taken where the core of the Milky Way was wreathed in bands of green and magenta airglow bright enough to compete.
This is also one of my favourite compositions, that sinuous stone aligns beautifully with the rise of the core and the Magellan cloud galaxy above my reach there.
