Celestial Maelstrom has it. This well executed fisheye shot sucks you in and plays tricks on your mind, before telling you that the wor...




Occluded Eclipse by Laanscapes
Occluded Eclipse
Although viewing the 2015 solar eclipse (technically a star) from the Netherlands was challenging, the clouds surrounding the sun and moon did  add to the mysterioius and ominous feel of this spectacular and rare celestial event. I'm extremely grateful to have witnessed this.

For this piece, I've set up the D600 on a tripod and let it capture the passing of the eclipse along the trees on set intervals. It's actually a timelapse in one picture. After the eclipse, I've shot 'some' more pictures in multiple exposures of the environment to capture more detail.

In post-processing, I've then stitched and blended all the shots in Autopano Giga. After which, I've hand-blended the sun through the clouds using the exposures in which the sun punched through the thick blanket of clouds to give the sensation of time passing.

Fun fact: the export from Autopano was about 50GB in size and it took that amazing program 7 hours to export it...

'Occluded Eclipse' was captured using 360 exposures from 't Wed, Zuid-Kennemerland National Park, the Netherlands during the 2015 total solar eclipse with the D600 at 35mm.

North by Laanscapes
Following the March 17th G4-class  geomagnetic storm, I drove with a friend off into the night to capture the Northern Lights that were supposed to be seen as far south as Belgium. While our digital cameras are much more sensitive to nature's most magical display, this was the first time I've seen aurorae with the naked eye.

'North' was captured in the wake of a Coronal Mass Ejection at the northern coast of Hippolytushoef, the Netherlands. With the D600 at 14mm. 10 | f/2.8 | ISO4000
As long as the weather is coöperating next friday, I'm setting my mood to "excited like a wee boy".

Your friendly reminder of the coming solar eclipse. :)
Two galaxies, Venus setting and an Acacia Tree by Laanscapes
Two galaxies, Venus setting and an Acacia Tree
With Venus as a backdrop, low on the horizon I portayed a lone Acacia tree as the witness to this desert spectacle. The eerie triangular light eminating from the horizon, and engulfing Venus is caused by sunlight scattered by space dust in the zodiac. The fact that this zodiacal light is visible in this image tells you how pristine the night sky in the desert still is. Other features in the image are of course our own Milky Way, the neighboring Andromeda galaxy, several meteors streaking across the sky and an iridium flare, caused by a quick reflection of a  passing satellite.

'Two galaxies, Venus setting and an Acacia Tree' was captured under the fading daylight of the Egyptian Sahara, in Wadi El Gemal National Park. With the D600 at 14mm.

Hey thanks! That means a lot, scketer!

Thank you. Will do, although I haven't found the time to submit to all of the groups yet.

DA is kind of tedious to spread work, isn't it. There really should be a faster way to submit work to multiple groups at once, I recon.

Thanks for the heads-up! Will prioritise. :)
