Spread the word about Stargazer

The Milky Way is one of the most beautiful and mysterious places in the universe. In our day-to-day lives we almost never stop and think about this powerful mass of energy, light, and gravity – completely full of the unknown. To capture this magic, two camera types had to be used. This was a two-man job. My assistant Mark set up the astro camera (specialized for shooting the stars) while I set up the other rig to capture the landscape. For weeks we followed weather reports and studied the earth’s rotation, waiting night after night for when the skies would be crystal clear. Finally, patience paid off - we were blown away by this incredible view of the glimmering cosmos. Billions of stars were calling, each one telling a different story. 36 x two-minute long exposures were stacked in order to reveal the universe’s hidden brilliance – normally invisible to the naked eye. Vibrant tones of pink, orange, and purple turned the image into a total cosmic dream. But, to get this shot just right, it needed to be paired with the raw, humble presence of earth. This amazing tree full of character, reached towards the night sky - it was the perfect scene to complete the image we were chasing.
