About

Always growing older - never growing up.

Eclectic random geekery: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sci-Fi, science, photography, LEGO, and stupid, stupid things.

This is my personal opinion / reblogging blog. If you're after my personal photos or awful photoshop creations, the links are below.

LIKE YOU CARE...

As they say in the classics "I'm too old for this shit".

That said, I live in sunny Brisbane (Australia), forging a career in advertising / marketing whilst enjoying life as it comes.

I take photos on my iPhone, listen to (a lot of) music on my iPhone, and like Star Wars. So yes, I'm a geek.

That's about it.

Party on!

shogunushuaia: Volcano by Garcia Foto


The picture is taken just outside a small fishing village on the island Senja in Northern Norway. The mountains in the picture raise to about 800 meters above sea level, and they are actually much steeper than suggested by the distorted ultra-wide-angle perspective presented here.
As always, the patient one is eventually rewarded. I have been looking for these conditions for quite some time, spending several hours at the same spot ready to capture this image. Clear sky, still weather and no moon light allows most of the fine structure of the auroral display to be captured.
In the absence of moon light, the mountains and the sea are illuminated only by the aurora itself. Hence, they take on a green cast. It is indeed breathtaking to experience how the surrounding landscape can be lit up in green by strong aurora outbreaks.
This picture was captured with a Nikon D700 camera and a Nikkor AF-S 14-24mm f/2.8 zoom with some solid support. The lens was shot wide open. The combination of the Nikon FX sensor and the state-of-the-art zoom takes the enjoyment of low light photography to a new level.
'Volcano' won the Stars and Night Sky challenge, the Best Picture Ever challenge, and ended as number 10 in the Challenge of Challenges 2009 at dpreview.com.
