Top 1000 Sky Pictures
No I’m saying actual pixelation in the mountains at the bottom, not the orange glowy thing. It’s cool though!
Thanks for the feedback, both clarity and sharpening are only on +7 but vibrance is much higher, will tone it down for the portfolio. Appreciated.
Fantastic! For those who don’t know these are mammatus clouds formed in the ash cloud downwind of the mountain. It’s the same thing that can happen on the underside of the anvil of a large thunderstorm. It’s technically debatable what specifically causes them from
Thanks! My camera is pointed roughly south. It was shot on a Nikon d600 with a samyang 24mm 2.8 and a ioptron star tracker to prevent star trails. It took two images, one with the star tracker enabled and one with it turned off
Yeah! I know, it seems most of my friends have been unaffected, but even out in Lubbock it’s flooding like crazy! like, whahaaaat! Flooding aside, that’s such a great representation of the texas sky, I wanna go back there. Texas pride is so real,
I was trying to get some of this tonight too but nothing anywhere near this. Spectacular! What were your settings?

Totally underrated. If you want to talk about the worlds’ best kept secrets, one of them certainly is Wyoming.
[Here] (http:[email protected]/9002732395/sizes/o/) is the full res 24872 x 5260. 12 shots stitched together in photoshop, taken with my Canon 5D MKII and Sigma 105mm EX DG F/2.8 Macro at F/8, 1/10th of a second, iso 100.
I was driving South on I-35, on my way to Norman, as it was rolling in. It was all bright, sunny and ~95 degrees in OKC, but it looked like I was gonna have to drive through Mordor to get back to my apartment.
I went in the summer two years ago and it was so weird having daylight at 11pm. I can’t imagine it in the winter though…
I currently live in Texas and I miss the skies in Montana everyday. Obviously this is South Dakota. Close enough.

A great example of being in the right place at the right time. My sister and I went to the Island after work for some photos and this amazing sunset started to form,
It looked incredible, the eastern side of the sky was first a brilliant neon orange and then within a few minutes it was this pink color.
I live in Kennesaw, and I see skies like this more often than not. Glad to see someone else sharing the beauty for the internet to see.
Fascinating. Imagine looking at this thousands of years ago. You would seriously feel in the presence of a deity.
Pilot here. It’s totally safe to take pictures etc, as long as you’re in established flight / in cruise. Obviously you’d never dream of handling the camera while landing / taking off, or really while climbing / descending (although I know people who sometimes
A quote from the photographer made it sound like natural lighting, but I’m not sure. ‘It was wild and beautiful out there, and as the sun was setting the lighting became increasingly spectacular.’
I am moving out of pheonix in a few months. I really don’t like it here very much (Im just more of a winter person…) but I *really* am going to miss the sunsets. Seriously the sky looks like this picture maybe three or
It seems to have panned out the next day, yesterday, when I went out on a charter boat for four hours of fishing and the only thing caught was a barracuda so small that even the mate wasn’t sure there was a fish on
I think it the OP is getting at the fact that it was 36C and hailing, which is relatively uncommon considering the drop in pressure and accompanied temperature necessary to allow hail to form and not just end up being rain. But as a
