From Matthew about this image:
STACK, BLEND, PANORAMA
After a serious dry period that lasted over THREE YEARS, (and, the very few adventures I did manage to go on seemed to involve way too much "getting by with crappy gear" ) ...I was finally able to get out into the wilderness, on a moonless night, with a decent camera and lens, and just enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.
On the evening after the solar eclipse back in August, my friends and I (including @tracyleephotos
) planned to stay another night at our eclipse viewing location, Sawtooth Lake in Idaho. The night before the eclipse had been a little bit cloudy, and while the timelapse I made turned out alright, it wasn't really optimal for shooting stills.
This night, however, we were lucky enough to have clear skies all night, and even a little airglow show later in the night! I'll post that timelapse video later.
This image is a combination of four stacked images at 8 sec for the sky, four stacked images at 30 sec for the foreground, ...and then repeated all over again four more times, to create a final panorama. So, 32 images in total.
Nikon D800, Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AI-S (manual focus)
f/2.8, ISO 6400, and 8 sec / 30 sec.
