From Nicholas about this image:
Canon 1DX Mark II, Sigma 14mm f1.8
5 exposures taken consecutively from the same place and with the same orientation of the camera : -
4 pictures for the exposure series (lightpollution): one stop minus each picture (down to 2s)
f2.0 , 20s, Iso 6400 -> f2.0, 2s, Iso 6400
I could capture the shooting star on the 2nd exposure of the exposure series with the same camera orientation.
Foreground: 1 picture: f2.0 , 20s, Iso 6400
All 5 pictures were blended in PS
Due to bad weather conditions throughout the Alps last weekend a lot of planning had to be done to complete that picture, that shows my personal favorite shooting star 2018. Hiking 1350m in elevation and a 7.5 km in distance to reach that point and the sky had been all covered with huge clouds above Mount Tschirgant in Tyrol (Austria). But shortly after sunset the clouds were quickly dispelling as the detailed weather model charts had promised. Though there was a lot of haze in the valley because of the high humidity wich was intensifying the light pollution, it was so amazing to gaze at many shooting stars burning out in the atmosphere tight on the very top of that mountain. But before I took that picture I hardly managed to capture a bright shooting star as the biggest ones always had been right on the opposite direction I was pointing my camera to … but I finally could capture this really big one on the second picture of my exposure series. It was burning out glowing visibly green! It definitely was the biggest I had seen that night and even the biggest for me for a long time.
"India is amazing" said the Israeli lady..I was listening to her travel experiences of this country and i was feeling proud..
India, a land of great diversity,stunning geographical landscapes, colorful cultures and million stories..When that lady was describing India from her vision,i realised how privileged i am to be born in this nation..
I have travelled a bit of India and i know that my country is blessed with every color possible on the planet..But will these colors survive??
After 71 years of Independence, i feel i am in a country whose exteriors are divine and stunning but the soul is rotten..
What is the soul of a country??..Its me..I am the soul, you are soul, we are the soul..I am India, we are India..
And we are just a chaos who are pretending that the things are fine..
Today when we celebrate this Independence, the struggles of the great men, the blood, the sweat of those legends, i feel we are shaming them..We are still not independent, we are not liberal, We are a mockery, we are a land of rapists, we are discriminative, we are religious fools, we are blind, we are lost, we are selfish..
The people of this country are failing this country..We don't deserve this land bcz clearly we just wana get this country crowded..We have no civic sense,we have no knowledge about population threat and lets not get into the environment threats which the people of this country have imposed on the nation..We are the system, we are the government and we are the ones to be blamed..
India needs freedom, India needs Independence, from us..We need a revolution, within us,within this society and within our thoughts.. And the day that happens we can proudly say "Happy Independence Day"..
