Polaris. F4.5 ISO 100 20' This was my first time trying a #polaris , it's a 20 min long exposure shot pointing at the North Star. Although I didn't have a beautiful foreground, I gave it a try anyway and, as you can see, I got it. However, I realised a 20 min #longexpo could be too much for my #Nikon The weather was ok, about 15 degrees, but the sensor got warm and as a result I got some stuck pixels as well as some dead ones. I had been shooting some Milky Way shots prior the Polaris, that might have helped. Anyway, It's ok unless you zoom too much 🙈
This is the first time I've seen such a #cloudformation And you can bet it was impressive! What is really interesting about #mammatus clouds is that they appear to be upside down. While associated with #thunderstorms, they are not necessarily an indicator of severe weather. Mammatus results from the sinking of moist air into dry air, which rarely happens on this area. The sharp boundary of mammatus is much like the sharp boundary of a rising #cumulonimbus cloud before an anvil has formed.
The Milky Way lying over probably the most photographed juniper tree on the island. Also an example of how light pollution illuminates a new moon night depriving us from wonderful starry skies. The light comes from the nearby island of #formentera That night I learned #saggitarius is called 'the teapot', and the centre of the #milkyway is always over it. Gracias @antoniomorenosalmoral 😃
