Hello Universe lovers!
My name is Ari Rex @arirex1 , I'm a photographer from Canberra, Australia.
I have been honored to takeover the @universetoday so I want it to be a fun experience for all of us.
Imagine you're traveling on a massive spaceship (mother earth) at hundreds of km/s and my lens is a portal to another dimension... now enjoy the journey because it's real ;) Thank you heaps Fraser Cain for allowing me to share 3 of my favorite images with all the humans of the Universe Today :) (First Image) "Venus"
Venus is the brightest object in the sky at night after the Moon, and that Monday night of October it was the brightest of the year 2016 so I had to capture it :) To get this shot it wasn't an easy task. I went to Namadgi National Park near the historical Braishaws Family Hut during the day to remove some tree branches that where located where I'm standing in the shot and some more where the camera was placed. so I could get a cleaner silhouette of myself.
That moonless night Venus was so hypnotizing, for a moment I forgot that I was taking a 30seconds portrait of myself and stayed there like that for minutes, admiring Venus, the Roman symbol of love and beauty.
