Hi. Hello.

Hey friends :-) This is my new favorite star shot. It's grabbed me deep inside since it first showed up on the back of my camera. It's different for me because usually I am looking for things to ADD into the frame, not shoot with an empty landscape. But, at the top of South Sister, in a snow-filled crater there was literally nothing around! So, I tried some shots out and then was amazed to discover I loved the emptiness of it.


New "style" for me, but I like it. I'm not finished processing it, but I really wanted to get a version up online for you to see.What do you think?


This is shot on the new Canon 1Dx, ISO 8000!

Also, heads up- on the trip this photo was taken, we did a big shoot off with the Canon DSLR's to find out which one is the best night shooter. Check out sample images, notes and winner here:
