And the Stars Fell

Star Trails Video! 

So this is my first time lapse video, so it’s kind of short, but it’s a compilation of all the shots that composed up my ‘More Than a Moment in Time’ photo from the other day.  If you missed it, be sure to check it out because I’m giving away two signed copies, shipped to your house!

And the Stars Fell

As the sun set, I realized just how dark it was going to be out in the desert at Joshua Tree.  Being a moon-less night, the milky way was in full swing, and as always, amazingly beautiful in it’s grandeur.   It’s not until you’re in complete dark that you see how many shooting stars there are on any given night.   The other amazing thing is just how big and vibrant some of them can be!  I’m sure those are the ones people normally see, but it’s great to see all the little ones that dash across the sky as well.

More Than a Moment in Time

Wow, I have to say that I’m extremely excited at how this photo turned out.  It took me right at an hour to shoot the approximately 100 photos that make up this image, and being alone in the desert at Joshua Tree was definitely a good time to sit and think about all the great opportunities I’ve had to shoot in some beautiful places, and wanting to share that with everyone.  I kept trying to judge the passing of time, but the only sounds outside of the crickets (and the occasional bush monster that never seemed to show it’s face) was the camera, clicking away every 30 seconds, starting it’s next shot.   I know that a lot of people are wondering about how to shoot these kinds of shots, and I’ll be putting up a little tutorial on it shortly!  In the mean time, enjoy, share, and good luck on the contest!
