The iconic Bodie Island Lighthouse on the #obx in #northcarolina ! As you can see, they’ve gotten a bit of rain in recent weeks. This is the first time I’ve actually seen “the puddle” at this spot but hopefully not the last. Lemme know what you think! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I am now offering one-on-one landscape and night photography workshops here in Hampton Roads! Learn how to master composition, manual settings, and photography techniques to create amazing images! DM for more info!
Goodbye Milky Way Season. It’ll be tough now to capture your beautiful galactic core. Overall a good season thanks to my trip to California but this is one of the few times there was no clouds locally this year @waterfallsofupstatenewyork@nystateparks.

Afterwork Climb ~ Congratulations to Nicholas Roemmelt. “This is the result of a 2 years planned project in the Geierwand Via Ferrata in Tyrol (Austria). The Milky Way is perfectly aligned to the planned composition only during 2 weeks of the year, so I finally could accomplish the project last week,” says Nicholas.
MORE from Nicholas: [This] photo combines all of my current astro-landscape-photography and post processing skills and tells the story why I am so mesmerized by that type of photography.
Pushing the personal and technical limits like depth of field and dynamic range with advanced capturing techniques, making things possible that were thought to be impossible but without building up a composite fairy tale reality in Photoshop.
…the skills needed to get to the spot with the heavy equipment, to overcome the complexity of securely fixing and belaying the equipment in the steep rock face to be able to align the camera properly to achieve the perfect point of view for the planned composition. The course of the river and Autobahn should guide the viewer deep into the picture as a leading line. I wanted to place Tina in the Golden Ratio at the overhanging rock and the Milky Way should be counterweight and repeating line in the empty space as a balancing object.
The security of Tina and my own is my first concern so a proper self belaying technique always has priority …ChrisTina Roemmelt however had to hang in that position at the overhanging rock without any movement for about a minute, so I was able to overcome the dynamic range of scene with the head lamp, which is way harder. Without her relentless commitment the project never would have been possible to accomplish.
TECHNIQUE & EXIF: This is not a composite and all pictures -41- (panorama, focus stack, exposure series) have been taken while hanging in my climbing harness over the “gaping abyss” with the same focal length without moving the tripod. Go to the FB link (below) for the complicated EXIF and even more challenging details that had to be overcome.

Another shot from @joshuatreenps taken few weeks back. I originally just planned on a quick trip and capture two spots and leave, but I couldn’t resist when I saw these unique looking yucca trees all over the park, and made another stop. Besides, you can’t leave this place without shooting the iconic tree this place was named after 😊
