    Franco - Really nice landscapes. The ducks in the foreground makes the shot.

    Beautiful shots Pat, M_six, Jan and Franco!

    Pat - amazing colors
    M_six - perfect timing! The exposure is bang-on for me
    Jan - nice balance with Tv, focal length and ISO noise. Steady tripod you have there.
    Franco - nice work! The first one is my fav

    Thank you for all your kind comments. I was hoping that I'd get some ducks in the picture..but there happens to be a duck couple swimming across so I just went for the shot

    Thanks for the comments everybody There are still some power-lines in the image I need to get rid off, but haven't succeeded in a good manor yet.

    I know what you're talking about. Note that I'm not an experienced night sky photographer myself, still early on the learning curve, but I know a few tricks.
    1 - You don't really need to be somewhere extremely remote. You can see a lot even fairly close to civilization. Since I ride on my bicycle to places I shoot you can see that I'm not very remote either. It does help though. Normally I try to be at least 2km/1,5miles away from the nearest house. That helps a lot.
    2 - I use a remote with timer(cheap ebay thing). It's nice for time-lapses, but it's also nice to be used as a remote for the BULB mode of your camera. When I start I quickly put my camera to manual mode with a very high ISO so I can shoot underneath 30 seconds. This way you can quickly decide what exposure you need/want. Then you can lower ISO, perhaps change aperture and use the old settings as a reference to calculate the right exposure at the new settings. When I'm done, I usually put it to BULB(unless it's less than 30s) and start shooting. I use 2 second timer as well.
    3 - If you want to see more stars, you have to make sure the light of the moon is as little as possible, because it brightens the sky too much. Search google on when there's a "new moon" in your area. At that stage only the shadow side of the moon is visible(barely) because the moon is inbetween the sun and the earth. (correct me if I'm wrong) Someday near the new moon stage gives you the best chances. As long as the sky is quite clear of course.

    First off, great shots! Second, I think I'd trade places with you any day I bet the nature is quite more spectacular where you live. I'm not the biggest soccer fan to be honest. I like to watch occasionally to matches, but I don't follow any league or so. Except: the European and World Championships! I hardly can't wait till this summer!

    Hihi I know right? Without a joke I use a tripod which I got for free with a magazine membership that costs me 40 Euro(55 USD or so?) a year No fancy Manfrotto or anything, but it works good enough for me. My girlfriend even got a better tripod than I have

    Anyway without only having text in this message, here are some shots from yesterdaymorning. I went to see a sunset at -18,5 degrees Celsius. And luckily I did, because it was something special. After an hour or so I was forced to get back home because my limbs where turning into ice






    The tree on this last photo I have shot before when it was extremely foggy. I'll try to get that online soon to show the difference.

    As I said, I shot this tree before in a different season(fall 2010):

    Jan, I love that first shot. The way the frozen grass is lit really makes the photo.

    Nice shots, Jan. Love the foggy tree shot.

    Later this spring when it's warmer I'll get out and work on night shots. I can drive a couple of miles and be far away from any buildings, so I have no excuse to not get a clear sky images.

    Wow Jan, how many beautiful shots do you have to share with us!? I really liked that one of icy grass with the sun backlighting..really reflects the chill.

    Went to Stanley Park in Vancouver this morning (the biggest,most beautiful nature park in the region)...got some really nice landscape/seascape with the help of my ND filters
