PhotographerDag Sola Orsic
LocationCroatia, island of Hvar
EquipmentEOS 1D Mark II 17-40 @ 17mm f/5.6 15 min
DescriptionThis photo was taken from an achored sailing boat. I was curious if any stars woud have been recognisable in a long exposure photo, because of the boat's continuous motion due to waves, plus the Earth's rotation. The result is funny, but I think interesting too. The only sharp object is the mast with it's shrouds and the brightest object is Jupiter. The detail shows how a „cocoon“ image has been created by a wobbling source. The Universe is beautifull in anyway!

DescriptionWednesday, I was on the Beach. There, during last Full Moon, someone has built a strange tribe of stone characters with rocks picked up around. Nobody knows who he is, but the result is fantastic! In the pictures, those odd creatures seem to contemplate the Milky Way. On the right, Jupiter is reflecting in the ocean. In this gallery, you'll see many other pictures taken that night.
