A Henge Beneath the Stars by Dee-T A Henge Beneath the Stars by Dee-T
Murphy's Haystacks
South Australia

Creepy noises in the dark, the occasional braying and scuttling of sheep, the sound of wind whistling across the fields and stars, stars as far I could see. For an hour, I had these haystacks alone to myself, my imagination and it was a question of how to record these senses into one image. This is the result of 14 vertical stitched images to encompass the very high milky way at the time of shooting. I hope you feel the sentiment! (ps. this is a redo from the facebook posted image which was done as a very small version on the fly where I completely overdid the stars)

may I ask you how you put the 14 images together? I also don't understand, how they fit, because the stars are moving... sry, I'm new to this...

Dee-T Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2013
If you move on quickly between frames, the star movement is small enough that the stitch won't be affected - that is why I try to take just one row of verticals rather than 2 rows of horizontals where movement may make things difficult to stitch

as the stars shine showing us worlds some not unlike our own. and a gateway to a new day. as the sun comes a honey golden shine on the horizon of a new day. and the slight streak of a star as it blazes across the sky. and your heart leaps at the sight of the stones so tall and stout all coming into one brilliant work of art that shines among it all. truly. this is amazing!
