    Trying to try trying my hand at astrophotography. (Yeah, I know I'm doomed.)

    Stacking's still a bit of an ordeal since my setup's untracked so far while I puzzle through the basics, but some of the single frames are coming out okay with only a little tweaking.

    I need to get out to darker sites more often.

    Ahhh, the old days when it was NcDonald's.

    (Interesting that they kept the old sign despite what looks like much more recent construction.)
    My family lives way out in rural Colorado, and out here marijuana is just growing fuckin’ everywhere

    They recently legalized cannabis in Canada, including (with some restrictions) home/backyard growing, and people around here are finding that nearly impossible to do because everyone's plants get stolen the moment their back is turned. I can't wrap my head around a field that size just sitting by a road and not getting regularly looted..

    All the other signs on the street are much shorter.

    My guess is there is a city/county sign height restriction that would apply if they replaced the sign.

    It’s wayyyyy off the beaten path. You would have to drive around for a long time before you found it, and the people who own these properties also own guns. Lots of them.

    This isn't a photo, it's a screenshot from a review of the harvour boat service we nearly hired yesterday (but backed out due to the owner being an hour late and shouting at us down the phone). Looks like we dodged a bullet!

    Good luck!
    I really enjoy Astral photography. Even though dark skies are great, I've found that there can still be some great hidden opportunities even in light polluted areas; if you can contrast a foreground framing you can compose some great shots to the night sky, and related techniques like light painting or shooting ice pillars almost requires it.

    When I was first starting out in 2010, I took the panorama of the southern sky
    Last year, I did this
    Here's the trick: those are the literally the same photographs I took in 2010. Last year I just revisited my old photos and re-edited them with newer, better software, but mostly it's just a result of how much more I know now and how all the things I've learned have improved my output. In theory, I hope my technical skills at taking photos have also improved, but in revisiting my old pictures I'm encouraged that even some of the very first shots I took are still pretty decent photos. That said, I still would like to get out and practice more than I currently do!

    Anyway, I really like astrophotography and find it really rewarding so I wish you the best and hope you get something out of it too.

    Does anyone have a link to a guide to photography? Things like light and composition, I guess would be the term? How to lay out a shot?

    Yeah it was a pretty great trip. That's from the top of Mt. Fuji. It isn't a difficult climb, but oh my god was it busy. We had to queue for about two hours for the final ascent to the summit... at 2 AM. It was pretty nuts.

    Climbing Mt. Fuji is on my list for my second Japan visit followed by a day or two at an onsen. I did the onsen thing without climbing the mountain last time, so I can only imagine how good it feels after it.

    Climbing Mt Fuji is definitely an awesome experience. We had beautiful weather the whole way up, and got to enjoy the perseids as well.

    The main things to keep in mind are the usual when hiking (bring lots of water! Bring lots of food! Bring warm clothes!) but also to not climb too fast, as the altitude is high enough to cause sickness if you ascend too quickly. We took 20 minute breaks whenever we started getting headaches/lightheaded and were fine to the top.

    Ive been up to 11,000 feet before, and yea high altitude really fucks with a person. Looks like Fuji is about 1500 feet more, but I bet its a long last quarter mile or so.

    I've climbed a few volcanos in my day. Fuji is definitely taller than anything I've summited though.

    Amusingly, when I was in Japan, I got up at 3am to do a night hike up Mount Ashigara/Kintoki to summit to see Mt Fuji at sunrise. It's slightly off to the right in that picture. It's not quite as involved and a lot less crowded, plus you get to look at Mount Fuji at sunrise. It was quite fun, although I probably should caution against walking a fairly deserted hiking trail on your own in the dark, guided by signs you can't see in a language you can't read on a path you've never traversed in a place you've never visited previously.

    As an added bonus, when you get to the top of Mount Kintoki there's a nice little cafe hut at the summit that can serve you a hot breakfast in between ducking out and taking photos of the mountain. I'm pretty sure I just pointed randomly at the menu I couldn't read to the hostess I couldn't speak to and got served a nice broth soup of some kind.

    This is shockingly similar to when I climbed Mt. Takao last July, during an actual record-breaking heat wave. I don't recommend doing that, but the cold soba noodles at the summit were absolutely worth it.

    Oh hey, found my photos.

    I expect this is true of any mountain path anywhere in the world, but Takao was every RPG mountain section ever.

    Summit! Burned through all of my water on the ascent, so the nearby water fountains were a godsend.

    I'm told that you can see Fuji on a clear day. It wasn't, so you can't. It would be off to the right here, if you could see it.

    9BlgNgE.jpg
    I climbed the old pilgrimage route, so I missed this extensive temple complex on the ascent. Poked around here a good bit. Easily my favorite temple, even better than Asakusa or Inari. This place is called Yakuou-in. A neat random place to stumbled across.

    Going down was pretty neat, because you were treated to views like this the first bit down. Also, you could jog the descent down pretty easily, which was fun.

    I should say I actually took the necessary photos of the view from the summit of Mt Kintoki back in 2009 but actually didn't have photostitching software at the time so never put them all together into the panorama image above until last night. So thank you @KetBra and photo thread for the inspiration to go back and revisit my old collection to put together a place I visited a decade ago and recall what I saw and experienced there that morning. :+1:

    My wife went to DC for a conference last week. While she was there, she got lucky on a tour (twice!) with lightning. The first was while taking video, there was a distinct lightning bolt in the sky while looking at the Washington Monument. The second was this one, where she happened to take this pic at the exact moment the sky was lit purple by lightning in the clouds while visiting the MLK Memorial.
