Astrophotography - Chambers Pillar

Testing out the capabilities of the new lens was fun, set to f2 which is almost wide open, I was able to capture the night sky.

At the time it was -10 Deg Celcius at camp. The brutal weather event was due to the cold air being pushed up by the low-pressure systems in the Atlantic Ocean. Causing snow in the New England Region, and also in the Snowy Mountains near Canberra. It felt a lot colder as the wind was strong too.

The clear and crisp nature of the night however, opened up an opportunity to photograph part of the milky way over the pillar. To which it was an experience that I will not forget anytime soon. Both very cold, and very beautiful.

I am pleased with the results and have learnt a lot from this photography exercise. As a result, I will try to capture more landscapes using this technique.
