    Endless Infinite Its February 2015 I am alone on the side of the caldera, it’s 2.30 in the morning there’s no moon, the altitude is 2325 meters. I am near to Pico de la Cruz. The wind is howling and its becoming very cold. On the inner side of the caldera’s lip its somewhat sheltered from the weather though I can hear it several meters above my head whipping and tearing at the scrub and rock. down below I can see villages through the clouds, a distant orange glow from the sodium lights. The clouds are licking their way up the massive sheer walls of rock, and behind me on the other side of the mountain they are swirling and gathering in huge weather fronts across the Atlantic ocean occasionally slipping over the top of the Roque de los Muchachos. I have set out a few tiny lights so I don’t fall off the edge. I have three cameras one on a dolly and two on tripods all aimed at the night sky, there's nothing to do but wait as the cameras click away gathering the unseen. I decide to climb out over the rim back to the road which runs along the edge of the volcano, as I ascend to the lip the wind is now strong enough to lean into. I scramble over the rocks my head torch illuminating particles of moisture as I walk back to the car. Once inside with the door closed I feel a sense of displacement and unease somehow the wind becomes nosier within the confines of the car whistling and buffeting. I close my eyes for a few minutes, when I open them my head torch reveals the cars windows are all white, out of the car I find its ice, I check back on my cameras the temperature has dropped and the lenses are heavily condensed.

    • A Journey: Day to Night at Uluru/Ayers Rock (Short Time lapse Film)

      For a long time now I have been fascinated by astonishing time lapse sequences that amazing photographers have made. Gradually my interest in time lapse photography grew so deep that I decided to make one myself. But its no easy task for somebody who is new to photography itself. Nearly after 6-7 months of practicing various photography techniques required for this mammoth task, I gave it a try. which resulted in my first ever Time lapse video. Luckily I happen to live in iconic and beautiful Ayers rock Resort ( Yulara), in Central Outback Australia. This place is world renowned for the monolith landmark Uluru and its clear dark night skies. Filming time lapse here is such a privilege and I feel really lucky to have got this chance. It wasn't a easy task though. More than 8600 images were shot and 5220 of them were chosen to conclude this video @ 30 frames per second. First sequence for this time-lapse was shot on 28th March 2015, and the final sequence was filmed at world famous Sounds of Silence site on 27th April. Weather played spoil sport on many major occasions and hindered the filming process, although at times it surprised and rewarded fairly in return too. It was a challenging yet exciting and good learning experience for myself shooting these various sequences round the clock. I must admit that I do have special interest in night sky, which I think you will figure out while watching the night sequences when they march into Milky way madness, showcasing its full majesty. If you are wondering what the soundtrack used is, its a powerfully mesmerizing track by Kai Engel " Between nothing and Everything" you can listen it here, http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Kai_Engel/Atlantida/Kai_Engel_-_Atlantida_-_01_Between_Nothing_and_Everything Contact: caramelkartikeya@gmail.com

        A time lapse made up from 388 individual frames, this clip shows the Milky Way's Galactic Core rising behind one of the microwave relay towers at Maddens Plains, Australia. The moon was setting on the horizon opposite to the tower and as it sets you can see the sky's colour change and the tower become dimmer. Each image was a 15-sec exposure at f/4.0 using a Canon EOS 7D with a Sigma 10-20mm lens set at 10mm. ISO set to 4000.

              This is my second attempt at capturing a night timelapse, this time i pointed it towards polaris. I have a lot of problems with noise which is really ugly to see on the video. Tried to retouch it in post but this is everything i could achieve. I tried to follow some guides which suggested to shot the video on RAW, but seems that the result is worst.. Shot with a Panasonic Lumix GH2 equiped with a Canon EF 55mm 1/1.8f wide open, using an intervallometer. 20 second exposures every 20 seconds, ISO 800.

                http://www.stardude.org Scouting Joshua Tree National Park - StarDude Astronomy Black Rock Campground May 16-17, 2015 My first 4K video and first Hyper-Lapses!!! Woot!! This event was different from my usual events in that I had the honor of being invited by a local Cub Scout pack (Den 9, Pack 766) to join them on a camping trip up to Joshua Tree National Park and be their guide to the night sky! I was more than happy to accept. I packed all my gear into B.O.B. (Big Orange Beast, my Orange Honda Element) and headed out about mid-morning. We arrived at the campsite unpacked our gear, set-up the tents and gathered with the scouts. Next it was decided that we were to go on an awesome 6 1/2 mile hike around the "Panorama Loop" trail. This hike offered amazing views of wildlife, plant life, interesting rock formations and of course breathtaking landscapes! Definitely a hike I will do again. After the hike, we all gathered around for a nice dinner over the campfire. After chowing down on a delicious hamburger, I set off to ready the telescope and prepare for the astronomy lecture. The scouts all gathered around and listened intently asking questions and making comments. Even the parents got into it. We then headed to the scope and were fortunate to get some good sights of Jupiter and its 4 visible moons as well as Venus and Saturn. Sadly thick clouds rolled in and ruined any chance of seeing any Deep Sky Objects (DSO's). About this time it was time for bed...well at least for all the normal people. Haha. I stayed up a few hours longer, composing shots and playing around. At about 1:30 AM, I had taken as many shots as I needed. I set up the camera to do a time lapse and went to sleep. Just 4 1/2 hours later, I awoke to get some shots of the sunrise over the mountains. Again playing around a bit, I got some funny shadow images. A little while later, the scouts also woke up and it was breakfast time. We all munched on breakfast burritos, fruits and juice! Yum! After breakfast, the scouts played and ran around camp enjoying themselves while I set up for my first ever attempt at doing a Hyperlapse, basically a moving time-lapse, where the camera moves at set distance intervals while taking shots at set time intervals. After taking them, I was excited to see how they turned out. As you can see in the video, I think they came out pretty good! Next, we all gathered as a group, sang some songs together and enjoyed each other company for a while longer before taking down camp and saying our thanks and goodbyes. This was an awesome event that I will not forget. Thank you Den 9, Pack 766! Clear Skies to you all!
