Bonney Stars by Dee-T Bonney Stars by Dee-T
Lake Bonney , South Australia

This panorama was taken on an evening where the milky way was very low in the sky. I ended up having to change position because of the cloud blowing in over the western horizon but managed to get a series of shots before the weather blew in . It's a panorama of 8 horizontals stitched together. Lake Bonney would be a superb place for further night photography particularly if the waters were dead still.

I love how you mixed the city lights in with the surreal desert night sky. Thank you so much for sharing this. I love it!

This is just unreal. I know you're using special exposures and all that to get this to show up as it does but it's hard to imagine that this beauty is constantly out there for us to see... and we don't notice it until people like you bring it to our attention.

This is an awe-inspiring composition. I love that old tree in the middle. It adds so much.

I have Lways wanted to know how to do this...what was the exposure time for each picture and how does it not get washed out?

each frame was exposed for 30 seconds - this was taken in pitch black darkness save for the distant lights of a small town

Oh wow, this is so inspiring! I am having the worst day and seeing this makes me feel more relaxed instantly! I wish I could just run away to this wonderful spot and lay down in front of a campfire and write poetry! :heart:

Marvellous!
How did you manage to "keep the stars still" with 30 secs shutter speed? I think it's because of the short focal lenght but I'm not sure that's all... :D

:icondee-t:
Dee-T Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013
you are correct ;) to keep the stars still, you need to have your exposure no longer than 500/focal length - I shot all of these at 16mm for 30 seconds

This explains why I was able to shoot the stars still with my 50mm only keeping shutter speed at maximum 10 secs :)

Thanks for the explanation :D
