Photography: Night Sky – Mongolia

One of the things I like to do is take pictures of the night sky whenever I have the chance, While in Mongolia I snapped some pictures at night outside my tent at Lake Khoton, Tavan Bogd camp and somewhere in between along the drive. The only disadvantage about taking these images is standing in the middle of the night in the bitter cold and half asleep. On top of that, the sounds of howling wolves from the forest over looking lake Khoton made me try to speed up the 30 second exposure as I stood in the dark. With that said, it was worth every minute. Enjoy!

Photography: Star trail

It is very exciting to watch the stars let alone produce still images of them.  The whole process from getting your camera ready to loading your photos and stacking them up to get one full image. This is my first attempt on star trail photography, this was taken within a short span, an hour only, and 251 images later, stacked using a software for mac called StarStax. I can’t wait to do this again! Thank you Q8geek
