Wow, nice pictures. Love the last couple ones during the night. Can you really see so many stars?

Probably not with the naked eye but a camera is capable of capturing even the smallest rays of light.
+rep nice pics very fantasy style the 4th and 6th pics specially since the sky reflects off the water giving a symmetrical world kinda thing going on

you take amazing pictures dude. +rep
do you do this as a hobby or is photography related to your work?
kai112 - 11-16-2009 at 08:19 PM

great shots omega,
i always enjoy your work~
how is it there? is it a far drive from toronto, and can you fish there?
howard22 - 11-16-2009 at 10:09 PM
i love the photos!

thanks everyone. i shot these with both a nikon d200 and a nikon d700.
some of them were quick and easy, but others i had to tone map to recover blown out skies.
not quite as many in the pictures, but yes, you can see hundreds of stars out there at night. the milky way is easily visible to the naked eye; it's
quite a humbling experience. i now make a point of going out during each new moon to star gaze. prime milky way viewing occurs during the summer, so
i'll be waiting patiently until then. :]
i don't live in canada, haha. bear creek lake state park is located in central virginia, USA. ;)
if you want to find a nice place to view stars, you can check out this light pollution map:
ideally you'd want to be in a blue/black area, but green is OK too. probably around a 2.5hr drive from toronto..

I'm chillin in Hawaii so the only water we see is ocean. looks epic out there
GeneralX - 11-17-2009 at 01:01 AM
wow, how long did you expose for when taking the last shot?
omega - 11-17-2009 at 02:11 PM
only thirty seconds. any longer and the stars begin to trail, which i was trying to avoid.
dragon208 - 11-17-2009 at 06:35 PM
Wow.. Those are amazing shots!! I love the last one...
MoFroS - 11-19-2009 at 11:52 PM
Breathtaking shots! Photos like these make me want to pick up photography... you really capture the moment.
