Starry Night This is a nightscape panorama taken on a clear winter's night near Queenstown New Zealand. In the middle you can see the Milky Way rising over the calm waters of Lake Wakatipu and on the right the two bluish Magellanic Clouds can be seen through the tree. Hope you enjoy the photo.

Epic Milky Way Lightning Storm While in Amarillo Texas I was set up for some storm chasing when a few breaks in the clouds allowed the Milky Way to peep through so I set up a time lapse of the storms rolling through as the Milky Way slowly crept across the sky behind them. I used multiple images to piece together one composite of the storms and the Milky Way. I hope you enjoy!

SPECTACLE OF NIGHT Hi & Welcome Everyone I have took this picture from my last trip to Joshua Tree National Park which located 140 miles east of Los Angeles Actually I have planned very well for shooting the Milky Way such as how the weather will be at the shooting day? In which direction it will appear? What time it will appear in the sky ? etc. When I arrived there the sky was covered by the clouds unlike what was expected! but by the sunset I was so lucky because most of the clouds…

Milky Way Over Boot Arch "Milky Way Over Boot Arch:" My trip to Alabama Hills was in early March when the Milky Way core was just beginning to make its appearance but at about 4am just before the dawn's light started blotting it out! Part of my time here was filled with clouds and snow storms so on my last morning it was a race against time as I got up very early and headed out in the dark to canvas the vast landscape for a specific arch known as "Boot Arch" among other names. Thankfully I…

Lighting the way home I went out earlier this week chasing the Milky Way. I had done my research as to the best possible viewing due to clouds. I ended up choosing to drive south the Sanibel Island. The weather report was accurate for where I was at I had hardly any clouds overhead. What I failed to scout was the clouds due south of me where the Milky way would be seen at. The entire evening it was hidden behind the bank of clouds on the left side of the photo here. So I tried to make the…

Ancient Bristlecone Pine forest under the stars I was camping at Grand View Campgrounds among the bristlecones hoping to get clear skies later. The clouds cleared up real nice the air was calm and hardly any moisture since the day was dang hot in the Sierras earlier in the day. This was my seventh date with this tree and I finally got the weather I was looking for.

I’ve had a deep interest in space and astronomy for a number of years now, though strangely I’ve never had this cross over into my photography until recently. Astrophotography is going to become a focus for me in the coming months and I’m hoping to share my images with you all as my skill starts to improve. This is a shot from my first attempt; the clouds were’t very cooperative and I arrived a little too late to capture the milky way in all its glory, but it’s a start.

Milky Way Rising This shot was taken in a lovely little dark pocket of sky nestled in the Cascade mountain range in Washington State. The lights from a nearby tiny town bleed into our galaxy rising from the SSW. There is a lake present but just out of sight. The skies weren't as dark as I had hoped but they were very entertaining with quick-moving clouds rolling through.

'Better quality here: https://500px.com/photo/103227027/wainui-nights-by-mark-gee The Wainuiomata coast near Wellington, New Zealand is rugged and exposed, but also very picturesque, and a location I've been wanting to photograph at night for a while now. I finally got the perfect night to do so, and hiked the 3.5km with my camera gear out to Baring Head, where I set up overlooking the beach and the Wainuiomata River. The Milky Way was stunning this night as it rose towards the east, and…
