Orions Trail Of Fury by CapturingTheNight Orions Trail Of Fury by CapturingTheNight

Finally remembered to post this. In order to get the shot "Orions Fury" ([link]) I set up my camera on a tripod and started shooting 30 second exposures one after the other. This is a stacked image of all those shots- giving startrails and every lightning bolt in one. Comprised of about thirty seperate images for a total elapsed time of 15 minutes. As I mentioned in "Orions Fury" the wind was very strong and my camera was being buffeted. This is especially evident in the jagged nature of the star trails. I have since upgraded my tripod for a more robust one, so bring on the next storm........

A big THANK YOU to Aus-Art [link] for awarding this

Hello Greg...
Amazing Picture...as always...!

The power...
and timing...
of the black landscape...
or even a heavy thunderstorm...
is dimished...
by eternal space...and startrails...

Connect the bottom...
of the 3 top tubes...
of the 3 legs
with 3 short...Heavy duty...
elastic rings and "ropes"...
to a central bag...
or net...
Fill it with rocks...
20 kilos...
or more...
or...
Hang backpack...
on tripod...
to stabilize...
and weigh Down...
your tripod...

The "dead" weight...
prevents vibrations...
at the Same Rythm...
as tripod...
or shutter...
or Wind...

Technique is used...
in Japan...
Earthquake will not create...
self-sustaining oscillations...
with the inertia...
of the Different mass...
in a Heavy roof...

Remember to place...
the feet of the tripod...
Firmly in to ground...!
so that: It will not "sink"...
during exposures...

Greetings Greg...Jakob.

Thank you so much :D Yeah I have since utilised the weighted bag method for stabilising my tripod, but this was taken when I was first learning photography.
