A dream of an amazing place 💫
So this magical place in java was incredible! Although I was sick for most of this leg in the trip it didn’t stop me from getting out there at 3am to shoot the setting of the moon.
Hoping I could have the Milkyway was next to impossible due to the Milkyway sitting directly behind the almost full moon. •
Sometimes conditions and circumstances throw Spanners in the works , similar to when I was in japan hoping to have a clear night to capture the Milkyway over mt Fuji - this is another example. •
So before all of you lose your mind this shot is a composition of two favs - the early morning of Mt. Bromo and the perfect stars of Tasmania •

Recognition comes from any form, any forum and any direction sometimes. When most photographers want to participate in National/International Salons, sometimes its good to look within our immediate boundaries.... Happy to have received "Second Prize" in Inter Apartment Society Photography Competition 2019, first time participated and thought lets see, but happy to have clicked a beautiful Apartment Complex of ours from the Lakeside shore - a Long Exposure Photograph (Single exposure) and beauty of the Lights all around .....

NGC 2359 is a helmet-shaped cosmic cloud with wing-like appendages popularly called Thor's Helmet.
Heroically sized even for a Norse god, Thor's Helmet is about 30 light-years across. In fact, the helmet is more like an interstellar bubble, blown as a fast wind from the bright, massive star near the bubble's center inflates a region within the surrounding molecular cloud.
Known as a Wolf-Rayet star, the central star is an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution.
NGC 2359 is located about 15,000 light-years away in the constellation Canis Major.
The remarkably detailed image is a mixed cocktail of data from broadband and narrowband filters that captures natural looking stars and the glow of the nebula's filamentary structures.
It highlights a blue-green color from strong emission due to oxygen atoms in the glowing gas.
