Got something special for you today. Presenting my fav photo of all times! To make this photo I had to climb the mountain twice. At first, I went to the top and saw a trail moving forward. I thought it was a round trip and advanced. In an hour I realized that I was wrong when I reached another town on the opposite side of the mountain. So I bought some water, had a 10 minutes rest in a beach tent and went back because I had some time before sunset yet. So I rushed back to the top. I made lots of photos that evening, but this one is my favourite. I was lucky enough to be there on the day when Moon rises an hour before sunset, which produced an image like that. The thing I like about Ukraine a lot is that we have loooooooooong lasting twilight here – the sky may be non-black until 10 pm. It was a bit scary to walk back on the mountain trail using just moonlight. I even saw a fox and lots of bats. The photo can be used in feng shui to "drown the mountain". Noviy Svet, Crimea.
To me, this photo is one of a kind, I have never seen or made something similar. If I were there today, I would surely backup the photo right away using at least a second memory card or even better a laptop. Now this photo has several online and offline backups to keep my mind at peace. II have a large online backup and several 4TB drives. @verbatimaunz

I’m teaching a beginners night photography class in August! #linkinbio for more info, but this one will be really special because it is a new moon and the Perseids! Think of the photos! I digress, I want to share my second Lion King Tree photo, this is a pano of the Milky Way over it- 8 images handstitched together - that took a while! I wonder which image people prefer? I’m torn, I love seeing the arch of the Milky Way and how I’ve composed the image, but I love the dramatic lighting in the other image. What do you guys think?! 📷s/s 25” f2.8 ISO 2500📷

Finally managed to sit in front of a computer and try and process a few images. This is from Pawleys Island a few weeks ago. Had to shoot between the clouds. Still kit happy with my processing ability. Hard to find the time to work on it.
I'm trying to find her in the stars.. Where she said she would always be. 🎵🎶🎵🎶
Saw them dancing in your eyes
Like shadows in the night
Doing pirouettes around the stars.
Thanks to @jeangiddy for helping me get this shot. More to come.
If you look up to the center of our galaxy on a summer night, you might notice a tiny little gray blur which stands out from the rest of the black dust in our galaxy. This is what that tiny little blur looks like up close! This is messier 8, otherwise called the lagoon nebula for its lagoon shape(??). It’s an intense star forming region in Sagittarius which is dominated by the pink emission of hydrogen. This image is only three hours of data, captured from a beautiful spot overlooking Sedona. It was a really unforgettable night of imaging. Let me know what you think :)

River of Stars
I tend to keep an eye on the weather around Minnesota when the new moon comes around. This particular evening was predicted to be overcast, so I didn’t think much of it. At 10pm the night of, I randomly looked at the weather to find that it was perfectly clear. I quickly packed my things and was in the road within a half hour. This location was one I hadn’t shot before, and one I hope to go back to. The river is much larger than this scene depicts and drowns out all other noise, which made me nervous about curious black bears sneaking up on me, but after I settled in to my shoot all of that melted away, leaving me with this awesome scene.
