Musical by Mashuto
Musical
Another image of the aurora borealis seen during the solar storm on March 17th. Southern Iceland.

Had a trip planned to Iceland for the middle of March, scheduled since last September. I was hoping I might catch a lucky break and see the aurora. I completely lucked out. Not only did I see it, but saw it on possibly one of the most active nights in the past decade.

I particularly liked the shape I caught in this image, remind me a bit of a musical note, especially because watching the aurora dance across the sky was rather musical. I hope you like it! More to come!

How does everyone feel about watermarks? I have been debating whether to start putting a watermark on my images.

Specifically as I feel my skill has improved, and I have begun trying to share my images to more places, I have started to notice my images popping up in a lot of random places, of which I get zero mention or any possible credit for them.

So, I think maybe its time to start watermarking my images in a hopefully tasteful way, that will hopefully allow at some information about my photography to get out there with the image.

Glacial by Mashuto
Glacial
Before I get back to posting some of my aurora pictures, I wanted to share a panorama shot I spent a while making.

This is the glacier Svinafellsjokull, which is part of Skaftafell National Park in Iceland. There was a short trail that got you pretty up close to the glacier and gave this great view. When I was up there, I took some nice close ups of the detail in the glacier and just had to get this panorama.

The final pano clocks in at about 130 megapixels.

Following a Dream by Mashuto
Following a Dream
Went to Iceland for a week to see the country and hopefully catch sight of the northern lights. I visited about 4 years ago and caught a small glimpse of the northern lights, so I was understandably hoping I would see them (and see them better) than last time.

What actually ended up happening was completely unexpected and exceeded my wildest hopes. On the one clear night, I just happened to be a wonderful part of the country for the largest solar storm in 12 years.

I spent a few hours staring up at the sky watching the northern lights sway and dance across the sky. And although I don't have the fastest lenses, it was more than strong enough to allow me to capture most of them at ISO 1600, hopefully making these clean enough to sell as large prints.

So, this is one of the more spectacular images I captured, but there are certainly more coming!

Changes, pt. 2
Since this is pretty much an extension of another recent work of mine, I will let that one do all the talking. I felt I needed a good landscape version. Portrait is nice, but sometimes its bettter to get a wider landscape shot in.

Lindy Point, WV. October, 2014.

Update: Wow, my second ever DD, thanks guys! Glad you like it!

Well I am glad you found my gallery and like my work! Unfortunately I have been quite busy and wont be able to get back into shooting picture for another month or so, but I have a trip to Iceland coming up, so hopefully there will be a few amazing shots showing up after I get back!
