Under the sky shore

Under the sky shore

Sometimes the sky can be so metaphoric. Like in this shot, taken on first day of 2017 over the Oravská Lesná of Slovakia. I took a walk in fresh snow, while the skies cleared up and the stars appeared above me. It wasn’t just about beautiful winter starry sky that moment as I’d noticed there are some waves of airglow over the eastern horizon. In the same direction, bright celestial duo – planet Jupiter and star Spica – was slowly rising. Despite the light pollution due to after-fireworks dust I could enjoy the faint winter Milky Way as well as even fainter bridge of the zodiacal light. The waves of airglow made the photographic view similar as waves of an ocean moving to a sandy shore. As I wrote – the sky can be so metaphoric. Used canon 6D Baader IR modified, Samyang 24 mm, f2.8, ISO 8000, 27x20s panorama from tripod.
