Savannah under the Stars…

by on Aug.21, 2015, under Life, Photography

Another day, another perfect location for stars.

This Savannah scene was ideal fodder for a Milky Way arch and star trails behind a giant Boab.

I played with a few compositions with the grassy foreground, and some Boabs all being light painted with the lowest setting of my awesome new Zebralight headlamp.

Savannah under the Stars

NIKON D750 + 14.0 mm f/2.8 @ 14 mm, 36.00 sec at f/2.8, ISO 6400

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

Eventually I opted for the arch of stars over these three main Boabs for my panorama composition.

My final panorama is the result of stitching six (6) frames taken with the 14mm – 30 seconds @ f/2.8 and ISO 5000.

I’m saving this image for an exhibition I’ll be doing with the Parallaxis group next year so this teaser will have to do till then sorry :)…
