Savannah under the Stars

by on Nov.07, 2018, under Life, Photography

This Savannah scene was ideal fodder for a Milky Way arch and star trails behind a giant Boab. It’s another day, another perfect location, and perfect conditions for stars

So where are we… well… about half way between Katherine and Kununurra in the Northern Territory at East Baines River. Literally alone in the remote wilds 🙂

I played with a few compositions with the grassy foreground, and some Boabs all being light painted with the lowest setting of my awesome Zebralight headlamp. These boabs look like they are literally dancing under the stars! 🙂



NIKON D750 + 14.0 mm f/2.8 @ 14 mm, 36 sec at f/2.8, ISO 6400

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

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 five (5) frames taken with the Samyang 14mm – 30 seconds @ f/2.8 and ISO 5000
