"Between Fire and Water" by Will Vrbasso. The Milkyway galaxy (seemingly large in this shot as I used a rather than the more popular ultra wide angle lenses) sets over Lake Dumbleyung, Western Australia.
"Desert of Stars" Near Cervantes, Western Australia, there are sweeping dunes that rise out of the bush - fantastic locations to explore and image.
"Forever Searching" by Will Vrbasso. Here I am, lost again in some forsaken place. On the shore of Lake Dumbleyung I pause by some dead trees on the shore line to take this dramatic panorama of the milkyway.
"Off My Shoulders, Galaxies Ascend" by Will Vrbasso
"Moonlight over Green Pools" by Will Vrbasso. The bright moonlight (at 33%) dominates over the Green Pools at William's Bay, Denmark, Western Australia. With a bit of processing I managed to get some of the Milkyway visible, being downed out by the bright moon.
"Ascension" by Will Vrbasso. Beside the dry lake Newnham, Western Australia I caught the milkyway rising nearly vertically from the bush-fire ravaged Peel region. Standing amidst blackened bushes and trees I hoped to get an interesting affect with my flash leaving radial shadows in the foreground darkness.
"Into the Dark Forest of Night" by Will Vrbasso. The Peel region, Western Australia, recently suffered bush-fires which left amongst various tragedies blackened and leafless trees and shrubs. Walking into them in the darkness at night is quite an experience, one can almost imagine that they are haunted and terrifying. Thankfully, I have walked alone in many a dark sky now and enjoy the experience rather than fearful of it.
"The Dragon Haunted Land" by Will Vrbasso Under the watch of the constellation Orion - the hunter, the land in the Peel Region, Western Australia lies quiet having recently suffered a bush fire.
"So Far from Center" by Will Vrbasso. Over a ridge located near Cervantes, Western Australia, the core of the galaxy rises above the desert. This is one of the few times of year where it is practical to use my 85mm lens to capture in fantastic detail the core of the milkyway whilst still being able to fit in a foreground (i.e. the core must be close to the horizon).
"Under the Magellanic Clouds" by Will Vrbasso. From the shores of Lake Dumbleyung, Western Australia - the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds (irregular dwarf galaxies) rise above the waters into the night sky.
