The Raging Stillness - Startrails Version by 


Definitely worth clicking on the photo to see it large.

Part of the Raging Stillness series this is a blend of 10 X 30 second exposures taken as part of a series of 110 sequential images during a particularly lovely night storm we had a little while ago. You’re looking at 5minutes of the storm at its height. The lines above the storm are startrails and the reflection in the water is from the full moon (out of shot).
Taken off Bundeena Cliffs, Royal National Park, just south of Sydney Australia.
This is a tiny section from the original photograph – being able to blow up such a small part of the image to A3 is where the 1Ds and the L series Canon lenses come into their own.
Canon 1Ds MkIII – 16-35mm f/2.8 LII USM lens
Tv: 30secs
Av: f/3.2
ISO: 200
FL: 27mm

Oh wow how cool – Rob Mullner nominated Raging Stillness for the briliant Pay it Forward Group with this comment:

“Having tried my darndest to get lightning shots with mixed results and success, I know how hard it is to nail it perfectly…This shot really highlights the awesome power of storms, technically perfect and a difficult element of nature to photograph – so hats off to your Geoff for this and these series of shots, and your work in general….Rob.

Thanks heaps Rob.

Taken on the same night as these two (just click on the pics):

This second pic has a link to an animated time lapse version of the whole storm – 91 photos linked into a sequence so you get to see the whole storm in 23 seconds.
