Despite temps below freezing, we went on December 13th, 2012 – the night of the Geminid Meteor Shower Peak, and a time of great planetary alignment. Armed only with boxed wine, firewood, and our DSLRs, we had to conquer epic climbs, sand roads with the 4x4 Jeep, and the occasional UFO! But it was all worth it when the skies cleared and showed us an incredible galactic palette! Star Trails shot at 25 sec exposures. No special effects used, just the rotation of the earth's axis. Photography Merging: STARSTAX. Used Canon 5D & 7D, with a 24mm/1.4 lens and a 28mm/1.8. The Geminids get crazy as the sun comes up (2:20-2:35) but you can spot a bunch more throughout, if you look closely -- or here's a nice shot (http://bit.ly/SkZGdw). There's also some passing planets (1:15-1:30 and 2:15-2:25). I believe the first big one is Jupiter. The "UFO" appears at (1:30-1:35) and makes three broad circular sweeps over the desert. Though in timelapse it appears to be moving fast, consider the 5 seconds = about 50 minutes, so it's creeping. There was no sound, so it definitely wasn't a helicopter. Closer picture here (http://bit.ly/T3yK3s). It can also be seen cutting through the circular star trails in the shot used above!

        Some timelapses that I shot in December 2012 and January 2013. Thought I'd edit them to some music and put them up.

          Trying to get amazing shots of northern lights in Juneau, Alaska is kind of a really bad idea. Bad weather and tall mountains combat any view of solar activity happening above Juneau. Brandon Hauser and I accepted this challenge over the winter of 2012. Everything from GoPros, compact cameras, and DSLRs were used to capture tens ouf thousands of pictures and hours of video. A camera exploded (internally), a lens was submerged in glacial silt, days were spent in a sleepless fog chasing the aurora and cursing the white winter we received. Here is a trailer for what we came back with. Song: The Microphones - "The Pull" off of It was Hot, We Stayed in the Water Check 'em out: www.myspace.com/elverumandsun

              Thanks for checking out my art! I hope you enjoy the peaceful scenes.. This is a small series of my first timelapse shots from home. I shot these on a Canon 5D Mark III with a 17-40mm and 90mm tilt shift lenses. These are shots of the beautiful winter clouds and night sky. I'm so stoked to be starting this adventure. The music in the film is an original score that I wrote and played live with the edited shots. I overdubbed two nylon string guitars and played what came natural for each scene. Recorded just for this short film:-) Please visit my website and write me if you'd like here: http://www.ericksonsoundlabs.com Enjoy and pass it on:-)

                The Horseshoe Bend in the Glen Canyon of the northern Arizona is a stunning site in day. But at night it’s a challenge, not a place to make any mistake! The canyon drops 300 meters down to the Colorado River at the overlooking point and in order to see the entire river bend you need to be right at the edge. For inquiries please contact me (btafreshi@twanight.org, www.twanight.org/tafreshi). The footage is available to license in fullHD, 2k, and 4k.
