Giants Causeway, County Antrim, Ireland. 40,000 black basalt columns.
Giant's Causeway, Ireland so interesting: apparently these are basalt columns. thanks dan :)
Since the beginning of the 18th Century, visitors flock to the coast of #NorthernIreland to admire this bizarre landscape in the area of #Antrim.
Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland...one of my favorite places
The Giant's Causeway (known as Clochán an Aifir or Clochán na bhFomhórach in Irish and the Giant's Causey in Ulster-Scots) is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. It is located in County Antrim on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland.
Giant's Causeway! remember learning about this in earth science!

02/08/2010 at 4:14 am - STS-130 Space Shuttle Endeavor launch from the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge in Ponte Vedra, Florida; about 115 miles from the launch pad. This launch was extra special because it is NASA's last scheduled night launch of the space shuttle program. I was there at Kennedy watching it launch!

To my right, a smokey tiger roars and bares its teeth. The tiger runs to the still hummingbird. I hear footsteps and i open my eyes and the smokey animals disappear.

Orion Deep Wide Field: The three bright stars on the left in this image are the stars of Orion’s Belt. Although part of a familiar constellation, a view such as this can never be seen with the naked eye. Only with long exposure time and a sensitive camera can we see the dramatic landscape of glowing gas and dust clouds that lie between the visible stars. This vast region of space includes the famous Orion and Horsehead Nebulae. Rogelio Bernal Andreo was the Winner of the "Deep Space" category..
Astronomy Picture of the Day: 02/03/14 - Orion Nebula Deep Exposure The Orion constellation is a very dynamic section of sky, home to a host of interesting objects. This particular image is a deep exposure of the region of sky around Orion’s Belt. First, the three bright stars you see are the three stars of Orion’s Belt. In this image, the lowest of the stars is Alnitak. Below Alnitak, you can see the Flame Nebula and just to its right you can see the famous Horsehe
Orion in Gas, Dust, and Stars. The constellation of Orion holds much more than three stars in a row. A deep exposure shows everything from dark nebula to star clusters, all embedded in an extended patch of gaseous wisps in the greater Orion Molecular Cloud Complex. The brightest three stars on the far left are indeed the famous three stars that make up the belt of Orion. Just below Alnitak, the lowest of the three belt stars, is the Flame Nebula, glowing with excited hydrogen gas and immersed in filaments of dark brown dust. Below the frame center and just to the right of Alnitak lies the Horsehead Nebula, a dark indentation of dense dust that has perhaps the most recognized nebular shapes on the sky. On the upper right lies M42, the Orion Nebula, an energetic caldron of tumultuous gas, visible to the unaided eye, that is giving birth to a new open cluster of stars. Immediately to the left of M42 is a prominent bluish reflection nebula sometimes called the Running Man that houses many bright blue stars. The above image, a digitally stitched composite taken over several nights, covers an area with objects that are roughly 1,500 light years away and spans about 75 light years. apod.nasa.gov/...

Lights House, Long Islands, Photography Tips, Long Exposure, Pigeon Points Lighthouses, Digital Photography, Longexposure, San Francisco, Shutters Speed
Once per year at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse they shut down the weak insipid modern aerobeacon light and switch over to the 1kilowatt lamp (which replaced the older oil-burning lamps) and fresnel lens of the original, restoring its appearance to what it was 135 years ago. Last night was the night, and it's really quite a sight. When they fire it up there's really a collective sense of "whoa!" from the audience (which was WAY bigger than I expected - I probably had to park a mile away and I was there an hour early). Capturing a shot like this is tricky because the lens itself actually rotates, which looks great but is tough for long exposures. But for the first 5 minutes they leave it static to indulge all of the photographers who turn out and want this shot (this highly unique and one-of-a-kind shot of course). When they switched to this light my camera still had about a minute of noise reduction to do on my final test shot to get the exposure right, so I missed the first minute. Then I started this shot which was about 2 minutes long, followed by 2 minutes of noise reduction again. So by the time I had my shot it was too late for a do-over. So this is it, I only got to take one photo and this is what I got, so I hope it worked out. It's also noteworthy that the fog last night was insane, even for a San Francisco local. On the drive home there were times when I couldn't see the road in front of me, only the orange reflectors in the middle of the road (for about 60ft). It worked out beautifully for viewing the lighthouse, though I also found that if I backed away much further than this I'd lose sight of the lighthouse itself. The unfortunate consequence of all the fog was that it was almost impossible to keep the lens and camera dry, so the lesson learned was to always keep towels with you when shooting the California coast. And in case you're wondering, that is the moon in the upper left. Follow me on Facebook | Visit my Website. ______________________ EDIT: Well this image hit DIGG.com today (Nov/07) and since then the view count has gone kind of out of control, and I'm going to have a hard time responding to all the individual comments, but I'll just add a couple comments here on things that others have brought up: - Photoshopped? No, not really. I 'burned' the lighthouse lens a bit because, well, shooting into a beacon of light for two minutes tends to wash things out. I also desaturated the moon a bit in the middle, where it created a light blue artifact. Just little image fixes - otherwise this is really how the lighthouse looks (which is cool, which is why I drove down to see it) - Does the moon work in the shot? Not as well as I'd hoped, but I could hardly move it aside either. To cut it out of the frame would have been a worse compromise in my opinion. - Is it crooked? No - it's level. But I shot with a wide angle lens pointed upwards to capture the rays as much as possible which creates a keystoning problem that throws off the angles. I could fix this, but haven't. - Why do noise reduction in-camera? This is different from the noise reduction you can do in post-production, and it eliminates hot pixels and blooming from the amps that are typical in digital long exposures (and are very tough to remove in post, if at all possible without specialized software). -HDR? Not that I think HDR would have even helped here, but I'm not usually a fan of it anyways. And I have never even figured out how to do it myself. So no. -Unique & One of a kind? Yeah, it's both redundant AND inaccurate. I was being lighthearted - man, a lot of people just hate that I said that. Thanks for taking the time to look and for all the great comments! ______________________ Looks like this found its way onto Digg / Digital Photography School - cool! Thanks for checking it out! _______________________ My original text has been reproduced in several places, but sadly I'm just now correcting a misstatement about the light source used for this display.
