Home Sweet Home.

By JohnnyGraham      
Home Sweet Home,

I recently had the privilege to travel to Namibia to take on the Namibia Desert Challenge 2014 to raise funds and awareness for the Michelle Henderson Cervical Cancer Trust. In between trying not to succumb to fatigue and injure myself trekking some of the most brutal but beautiful sand dunes on the planet I managed to sneak in some photography too

Here's a cheeky wee capture of the Milky Way in all its glory above our sleeping base camp deep in the Namib Desert, Namibia.

An amazing image which reminds me of just how small we are in the universe.

Absolutely superb, I love this kind of image, Grin I tried to take a similar shot at Bryce Canyon, Utah recently but failed miserably! Blush

thanks folks, if at first you don't succeed try again, the night sky stuff can be tricky at first but ultimately its rewarding as heck when you get it right.

thank you for the UA's guys Smile

As others have said an amazing shot which captures the night sky in amazing detail with the illumintated camp site in the f/g making all the difference.. Can't remember the last time I looked up to see a clear starlit sky! Btw,this is probably one example where the tech details are useful!

Namibia is an amazing destination and one that's not a common destination at all from the UK.

I have tentative plans to be back there next year helping a company doing photography tours and workshops with a heavy dose of Night Sky photography especially in the Namib Desert,

awesome place.

cheers for the comments and votes and indeed for the HC.
