: ➰ Lunar Eclipse ➰ 📍 Appalachian Mountains, Virginia 📍 〰 “Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us - there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries” - Carl Sagan 〰 Another attempt at capturing the January 20 - 21, 2019 lunar eclipse... also known as the ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon.’ It was visible as a total eclipse throughout North America, South America, Western Europe, and Northwestern Africa; and visible as a partial eclipse in the Eastern parts of Africa and Europe. Personally, it was my first time photographing an eclipse of any kind - and while it certainly was a beautiful experience, I could have definitely done without the 14deg (Fahrenheit) weather! This image is a point-in-time blend. Three images were used in total. All 3 images were shot with the same 300mm f/4 lens, and from the same tripod position. The first image was exposed for the dark sky and stars. The second set to capture the Corina of the eclipse (the geometrical lines are created by the optics of the lens). The final image was exposed to capture the red tones on the surface of the moon during the eclipse. All 3 images were edited separately in LR, then manually merged in Photoshop, with some final color toning done in the Nik collection. 〰 ✳️ PRINTS FOR SALE, LINK IN BIO ✳️ 〰 #CulturaEsVida#travelphotography#travelphotographer#yourshotphotographer#travelstoke#traveladdict#welltraveled#wanderlust#theglobewanderer#beautifuldestinations#worldnomads#theworldshotz#roamtheplanet#fineartphotography#nikon#300mm#lunareclipse#fullmoon#superbloodwolfmoon#astro#astroworld#astrophotography#deepsky#timelapse#starphotography#night#nightphotography#nightscape#nightscaper#inspirationalquotes

It is the nearest major galaxy to our galaxy the Milky Way. The Andromeda Galaxy is among the brightest of the Messier objects making it visible to the naked eye from Earth on moonless nights, even when viewed from areas with moderate light pollution. Below the Andromeda galaxy, below and to the right, is Messier 110. M110 is a dwarf elliptical galaxy, which satellites of the Andromeda Galaxy. The Andromeda Galaxy contains approximately one trillion stars, more than twice the number in our galaxy. The Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies are expected to collide in ~4.5 billion years, merging to form a giant elliptical galaxy or a large disc galaxy. 〰 ✳️ PRINTS FOR SALE, LINK IN BIO ✳️ 〰 #CulturaEsVida#travelphotography#travelphotographer#yourshotphotographer#travelstoke#traveladdict#welltraveled#wanderlust#theglobewanderer#beautifuldestinations#worldnomads#theworldshotz#roamtheplanet#fineartphotography#nikon#300mm#astro#astrophotography#stars#starphotography#nightsky#deepsky#galaxy#andromeda#twanight#constellations#starrylandscapestacker#photoshop#lightroom#milkyway

: ➰ Orion’s Belt & Sword ➰ 📍 Charlottesville, NC 📍 〰 On a particularly cold night in the mountains of Virginia, the stars and Nebulae of Orion’s Belt and Sword can be seen clearly. Pictured are the 3 Stars of Orion’s belt: Mintaka (top middle of frame), Alnilam (middle), and Alnitak (bottom left). Beside Alnitak the Flame Nebula can be partially observed. Below Orion’s Belt hangs his sword. While many stars make up the constellation’s sword, it’s the two nebulae which really steal the show. Part of the immense Orion Molecular Cloud Complex, the massive Orion Nebula (M42) and smaller De Mairan’s Nebula (M43), can both be seen in the bottom right of this frame. M42 is one of the brightest nebulae in the night sky. In part because it is the closest region of massive star formation to Earth. M43 is separated from the main nebula by a large dark dust lane, making it appear as a separate nebula from Earth. Swipe to see these names mapped onto the image, as well as how this image fits into the overall Orión constellation. 〰 ✳️ PRINTS FOR SALE, LINK IN BIO ✳️ 〰 #CulturaEsVida#travelphotography#travelphotographer#yourshotphotographer#travelstoke#traveladdict#welltraveled#wanderlust#theglobewanderer#beautifuldestinations#worldnomads#theworldshotz#roamtheplanet#fineartphotography#nikon#300mm#nightsky#nightskyphotography#astro#astrology#space#nebula#deepspace#stars#orion#orionsbelt#orionnebula#m42#m43#flamenebula

: ➰ Dracula’s Castle ➰ 📍 Whitby Abbey, England 📍 〰 Though set in Transylvania, and based on a real prince, it was the small seafaring town of Whitney, England which inspired much of Bram Stoker’s seminal novel Dracula. High above Whitby, and dominating the whole town, stands Whitby Abbey, the ruin of a once-great Benedictine monastery, founded in the 11th century. Whitby’s windswept headland, the dramatic abbey ruins, a church surrounded by swooping bats, and a long association with jet – a semi-precious stone used in mourning jewellery – gave a homegrown British feel to the foreign set gothic novel of thrilling horrors. 〰 ✳️ PRINTS FOR SALE, LINK IN BIO ✳️ 〰 #CulturaEsVida#travelphotography#travelphotographer#yourshotphotographer#travelstoke#traveladdict#welltraveled#wanderlust#theglobewanderer#beautifuldestinations#worldnomads#theworldshotz#roamtheplanet#fineartphotography#nikon#landscapephotography#sunset#castle#abbey#ruins#dracula#whitbyabbey#england#englishheritage#unescoworldheritage#landscape#monastery#visitengland#sunset_vision#landscapephotography
