It only takes a few seconds to change your life forever. This image shows one of two EF4 tornadoes that were on the ground simultaneously in Nebraska in 2014. It was both a tragedy and a unique meteorological event. This is the tragic side and fortunately no one was killed at this location. It does remind me that mother nature is much more powerful than she gets credit for.
; The Lut Desert, widely referred to as Dasht-e Lut , is a large salt desert located in the provinces of Kerman and Sistan and Baluchestan, Iran. It is the world's 27th-largest desert, and was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List on July 17, 2016. The surface of its sand has been measured at temperatures as high as 70 °C (159 °F) making it one of the world's driest and hottest places. اینجا لوته سفر به لوت ، بیابانی که بافت شاهکار طبیعیش آدمو به وجد میاره و منی که از دیدن آسمونش شگقت زده شده بودم. بیابانی در بخش مرکزی ایران که پارسال در فهرست میراث جهانی یونسکو ثبت جهانی شد. علاقه ی شخصیم به کویر باعث شده خیلی از کویرهای ایران رو برم و ببینم و شبش رو عکاسی کنم ، نمیشه گفت کدومش بهتره اما لوت از اونجایی که دست نخورده تر مونده ، شگفت انگیز تره و چیزهایی رو در دل خودش داره که در هیچ بیابان دیگه ای نمیتونید نمونش رو پیدا کنید. هنوز خیلی از قسمت های لوت رو ندیدم و بی صبرانه منتظر دیدنشم.
آسمون فوق العاده بود و هواتاب های به شدت قوی ای رو داشتیم که داخل عکس کاملا مشخصه. ستاره ی سهیل ، یکی از ستاره های پر نور آسمان شب که در ایران و در عرض های جغرافیایی پایین تر و فقط در چند ماه از سال میشه دیدش رو در پایین عکس و بالای کلوت ها میتونید ببینید.
Super @tracyleesphotos! #teamtokina#tokinausa#milkyway ————————— I always admire all of the images I see @Wayne_Pinkston produce out of the Bisti Badlands and he motivated me to go my 1st time; My 2nd trip here definitely outdid the 1st because I had more time to explore it with @KaydenPhan@SMPetersonPhotography & @SafatajPhoto.. We had so much fun coming up with tons of comps.. --- This particular shot was taken on Monday night although I had scoped it out and we got clouded out on Sunday night... This amazing hoodoo formation can be shot from almost every single direction although a South West direction seems to be better if you want other significant hoodoos in the background. I think these are my final shots of the Milky Way from this trip for this season; I wasn't willing to accept that it was over last month and i'm glad I didn't!! Thank you to my adventure partners for humoring me!! --- This is 15 images stacked for NR in SLS.. I lit the scene with 2 lume cubes (LumeCube.com/160.html and use TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) for the front using CTO filters and a Lighthouse (all available from Lume Cube), and Morteza had his flash firing as a rim light.. I could have used another cube from the back to do the same, but we had the flashes up for other images we did in the evening. --- ISO 6400 F2.8 10 seconds Processed in LR Tokina USA 16-28 @ 22mm Slik USA 634-CF Canon 6dmk1
This is the famous glacial erratic near Bumpass Hell in Lassen Volcanic NP.
In late August MW is positioned perfectly behind this interesting boulder and I therefore could not resit to capture it during my roadtrip following the August solar eclipse.
While Lassens skies are mostly very dark, the southwesterly direction is plagued be severe light pollution from the Sacramento area, producing the yellow glow on the horizon that completely eats up the stars.

Being in Zion reminded me of my #yosemite trip a few years back where I had no idea how to use a camera. I still don't, but learning is half the fun! This was one of my favorite attempts at night photography.
