Decay and the Way

These shots are from an early morning shoot this past Saturday.  It’s always a good idea to wake up well before sunrise to scout your location but there are also many cool shots to be made before the sun is even close to the horizon.  Both of these were taken about an hour before sunrise.  The cluster of stars is actually the outer regions of the Milky Way.  The flash of light above the barn was a lucky capture of an iridium flare.  You can read what an iridium flare is here.  Didn’t quite capture the whole thing, but I got most of it.

  2. I’m telling you man, every time you post stuff like this it nudges me more into waking up at 1-2am just to TRY and get a shot like this – with my own spin of course. Just amazing.
