Surveying the Galactic Bridge…

Ahhh – here I am surveying that great Galactic Bridge in the heavens. I’m continuing my quest for capturing the Milky Way arching from horizon to horizon over the landscape.

These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. Click any of the images to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

This arch of the Milky Way over this fabulous valley was shot in Mirima National Park (commonly known as Hidden Valley National Park). Would you believe the Kimberley town of Kununurra is just five minutes drive from here.

As I’ve often done, to include the top of the arch of the Milky Way I have to angle the lens upwards for the shots. I’m also taking fully manually (both framing and exposure) images.

Entropy Exhibition

This was one of the images that didn’t make the final cut for my current exhibition. Titled “Interstellar” it’s a series based around astro photography and our fabulous night skies. With a particular emphasis on epic Milky Way panoramics.

Our exhibition starts in only a few days time at The Art Space on the Concourse @ Chatswood (Sydney’s North Shore). It’s showing from Wednesday 7th to Sunday 18th September 2016 and entry is Free. If you can make it we’d love to see you there.

…and if you’d like to chat with me whilst you’re there, I’ll be there all day on Sunday the 11th and Saturday the 17th of September.
