The Wetlands by CapturingTheNight The Wetlands by CapturingTheNight

The last glow of sunset fades on the horizon as the first stars begin to emerge.

Went location scouting last night to see in the new year. This was the first frame of a star trail image I had planned, but I didn't like the end result as much as I liked this single image.
Note to self: Next time take insect repellent and gumboots.

I was wondering if you folks in Australia will be able to view Comet Panstarrs on March 12 (if it decides to make an appearance or not) or will that be a northern hemisphere event?

We can see Panstarrs now but it is not ideally placed for us southerners being so close to the horizon and in the dawn light. Still pretty faint too. In February it will be better, but then it swings around and becomes a northern hemisphere object for you all to enjoy. Hope it's a great show for you all. I'm actually contemplating traveling to the northern hemisphere for Comet ISON later in the year. Time to start saving.......

The wide variety of color in the stars is fascinating. Is that an edit? Or how did you achieve the effect may I ask? :o

Very nice photography, I actualy feel that less stars benefits this picture, very calm and relaxing to look at. Great work.

And a happy new year to you. :)

Greg I think you have definitively proven the earth is indeed flat! The wetlands look like one of the fancy pools that are perched on the edge of a cliff giving the look that there is nothing beyond the edge of them but a great drop off. It looks to me as if you could fall off the edge of the wetland and just float off into space. ;-)
