Buttermilks Astro Photography

Saturday, August 7th, 2010 at 1:49pm - Landscape

So recently I´ve been incredibly inspired by the work of Tom Lowe of Timescapes, and I´ve even had the incredible opportunity to get to meet and hang out with him.  He´s such a nice guy, and he´s working on a film called "Southwest Light", that will be very reminiscent of Baraka and Koyaanisqatsi.  Tom´s work is simply mind blowing and jaw dropping, and he has a very unique niche.  His astro timelapse work with motion controlled dollies and cranes is simply the best I´ve ever seen.  You have to check it out.

Well the little bit of time that I´ve spent with him has completely inspired me to try some astro photography myself.  Last night was my first earnest attempt.  I went up to the Buttermilks about 11:30 last night and shot until 3 am.  When I got home I was so excited I loaded the images on my computer and stayed up until 5 am going through them.  Here´s some of my favorites. 

Do you have any favorites???  Do you like the added light in some of the shots???  Do you prefer when its more subtle, or dramatic???  Please vote for all your favorites and share any thoughts and feelings in the comments below.  Hope you´re having a wonderful day!
