Broken Dreams II by CapturingTheNight Broken Dreams II by CapturingTheNight

This morning I once again found myself wide awake at an hour of the night that most people have hardly even seen. This hobby is seriously messing with my body clock. :yawn:
Decided to go for another drive with my camera and see what I could find. Came across this dead tree beside the road and thought it had a pretty cool silhouette. I hope you once again like the result of my broken dreams.

I bet I am very often awake at such an hour. I have a very messed up biological clock. Maybe I should invest in some equipment and do what you do since I am more than likely to see the stars most times.


The tree in this photo looks like a reindeer looking at what you photographed.:) Great shot.

I didn't invent the backwards sleeping club but I am a senior member.:) Do you get all of your equipment from a camera shop or from other places? I just realized I don't even know what all of the equipment you use is. So clue me in. I would be interested to know the names of the equipment you use to take your photos. Especially the Deep space photos.

Thank you very much Shaun :D Yeah I agree. Helps anchor the images better. The hard part is finding interesting things around my area where there is little to no light pollution.

Thank you very much Knate :D I'm very glad you like it. I had a crescent moon behind me helping light up the landscape and sky a bit more.

Thank you :D For anyone just standing outside and looking up you would see the Milky Way as a faint diffuse glow running across the sky from my dark sky site. The colour is the sky is brought out by the long exposure of the camera. Instead of our eyes working at something like 30 frames a second (this is just an example- I don't know what the equivalent frame rate of our eyes is) if you could change your eyes to one frame every 30 seconds then you would see this for real. Of course you would have to keep your head very still.....

It also depends on what time of the year and time of the night and where abouts in the sky you are looking. For me in Australia this "bright" central part of the Milky Way comes directly overhead in Winter and is visable from Late January to November. For you in the US it is more just a summer object rising towards the south. Other parts of the Milky Way are not as spectacular or easy to make out with your own eyes.

Cyrodilic, I live in Albuquerque, NM. From here, the brightest part of the milky way rises around 10:30-11:00ish when facing East-SouthEast. just FYI :-)

Greg, calling it a "snapshot" is not worth of the image :-) You make it sound too easy!

Thank you :D Shots like this should be "easy" with the amount of time and money I have spent on camera equipment. Granted it probably isn't your typical "snapshot" but with the right knowledge and as I said very expensive cameras and lenses, it is actually very quick to take images like this.

I guess this photo is what you would call "snapshot", eh?
