Marshall Point Starry Night by edwardreese

This a view of the night sky from behind the Marshall Point lighthouse in Maine.

It’s a three shot panorama from left to right, with a blending of exposures to keep the brightness of the head light from blowing out the milky way.

Have to say this is the most challenging type of photography I’ve gotten into so far. Have to be really careful of light sources and noise processing.

Still have a lot to learn.

Camping on the volcano Etna by marcocalandra89

A few weeks before the eruption of October 26 2013, the south-east crater of Etna had already manifested phenomena of explosive activity.
On the evening of October 25, I made an arrangement with my cousin for camping on the volcano and making several photographs.
Later that day we started to walk down the path that would have taken us to the Valle del Bove. Once there, we put up the tent and spent the night taking several photographs.
During the first hours of the night we started to hear some roars coming from the crater, so we looked out of the tent and saw that it had started to erupt, resuming its explosive activity which had stopped a few weeks before.
It was a great sensation to see a spectacle of nature like that and be one of the firsts to see it so closely. So we caught the opportunity to film and photograph in order to keep it as a memory, not just a mental one, but also visual one.
