Colorful Masterpiece

February 8th, 2016

The magnificent masterpiece shows the Orion nebula in an explosion of infrared, ultraviolet and visible-light colors. It was "painted" by hundreds of baby stars on a canvas of gas and dust, with intense ultraviolet light and strong stellar winds as brushes.

At the heart of the artwork is a set of four monstrously massive stars, collectively called the Trapezium. These behemoths are approximately 100,000 times brighter than our sun. Their community can be identified as the yellow smudge near the center of the composite.

The swirls of green were revealed by Hubble's ultraviolet and visible-light detectors. They are hydrogen and sulfur gases heated by intense ultraviolet radiation from the Trapezium's stars.

Wisps of red, also detected by Spitzer, indicate infrared light from illuminated clouds containing carbon-rich molecules called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. On Earth, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are found on burnt toast and in automobile exhaust.

Additional stars in Orion are sprinkled throughout the image in a rainbow of colors. Spitzer exposed infant stars deeply embedded in a cocoon of dust and gas (orange-yellow dots). Hubble found less embedded stars (specks of green) and stars in the foreground (blue). Stellar winds from clusters of newborn stars scattered throughout the cloud etched all of the well-defined ridges and cavities.

This image is a false-color composite, in which light detected at wavelengths of 0.43, 0.50, and 0.53 microns is blue. Light with wavelengths of 0.6, 0.65, and 0.91 microns is green. Light of 3.6 microns is orange, and 8-micron light is red.

Mount Cook Sunset

November 8th, 2014

This is Mount Cook, the highest mountain in New Zealand, located in the Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park.

I took this photo a few days ago during my stay at Lake Tekapo. We traveled along Lake Pukaki while the mountain was covered in clouds. Later that day we got really lucky with the weather, as it became really sunny and the complete mountain range was cloud free, which happens not really often. After sunset, I had the great opportunity to take this photo, while the mountain was covered in the last red sunrays while the other mountains and the lake went dark. The reflections on the lake were just marvelous.

The photo is nearly untouched, I just did some minimal lens correction and color adaption, as photos taken with the 70-300mm sometimes seem to be a bit foggy.

Adobe Lightroom 5.6.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM.

Bandon Face Rock

December 8th, 2013

The locally famous "Face Rock" in Bandon, Oregon, USA. Lots of photographers flock to this small coastal town these days. You see ads for tours to Bandon in magazines such as Outdoor Photographer. This small town has changed much from the 1980s when I went to high school there.

Aldeyjarfoss

June 23rd, 2015

This is Aldeyjarfoss. Located 40 kilometers into the highlands from the Ring Road, Aldeyjarfoss is situated in a lava field that formed over 9,000 years ago. The river's source is Vatnajökull's glacial runoff, while its incredible basalt columns resembles that of its smaller (and more widely known) counterpart, Svartifoss. Clearly, getting here is a testament to taking the least ventured path, as it was impossible to find another soul for miles upon miles.

Adobe Lightroom, ND 3.0.

Nikon D7000, Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED.

Photo Settings: 14mm, f/11, 10 seconds, ISO 200.
