  1. I’m always really impressed by work like this. It’s hard enough getting good pictures of the stars – let alone doing it consistently enough to do a time lapse of it.

  3. This video is really pretty.
    And many thanks for your comment about exposure, sensitivity and aperture.

    But I have a question : how did you manage to get a foreground so bright, for example at 3:00 ?
    Did you use a flash ?

  4. wish i could see the nightsky like that, when i was younger we lived in a more quiet area, no lights no nightlife which is why i loved moving, but miss some of the more quieter moments aswell :(
