Fucking Moon and Saturn in conjunction. If you zoom in to that little speck on the top right, you can make out Saturn’s rings.

Congratulations on being featured #Talesofplanetearth ......................................................... Credit @beckylynnsim - The dark dome of sky lit with a million stars. Orion drifting in the night winds. The only sounds the cracks and groans of the shifting ice. Solitude. And yet such a feeling of expansiveness, the whole universe before me. This moment, this dream. A surreal Saturday night on the ice. #explorealberta #discoverearth #watchthisinstagood #mountainstories #moodygrams #orion #nightscaper #night_shooterz #night_shots #sharecangeo #opcmag #imagesofcanada #davidthompsoncountry #abrahamlake #weownthenight_ab #canadiancreatives #wildlycreative #totescanadian #night_excl - #travel #astrophotography

I'm surprised at how few shots I've seen of the milky way over the 3 sisters, I even did a bit of googling and only found a couple. The milk way lines up pretty perfectly at this time of year over the famous trio and reflects in the creek below. This is a really popular spot for sunrise and sunset but not so much in the middle of the night! On the walk back we did hear some odd squawking sounds, which @bry.peters pointed out sounded a bit like a Cougar call. At that point my pace increased pretty rapidly. Maybe that explains why I haven't seen many pictures of here at night!

Good morning @weownthenight_ab It’s @the_ravens_eye_ here. I am so excited and honoured to be a part of this page! For me, the world comes alive at night and my first true love with night shots has always been steel wool, so I thought I’d share one of my favourites. I’m forever learning and broadening my horizons. . What’s your favourite thing to shoot in the dark? Drop me a note in the comments and let me know! I’m excited to see your creativity. I look forward to getting to know you and keep tagging #weownthenight_ab ------------------------------------ #Alberta #Canada #night_captures #nightshooterz #totescanadian #thecanadiancollective #global_hotshotz #nightphotography_exclusive #nightphotography #igpodium_night #super_photolongexpo #nightscape #explorealberta #travelalberta #ig_nightphotography #long_exposure #amazing_longexpo #longexpoelite #slowshutter #neverstopexploring #adventure #addicted_to_nights #nightshooters

Last night was kind of a funny night. It was so awesome that I was able to catch aurora with cool noctilucent clouds together. But what was funny is that we stopped at an abandoned house by Halkirk that we hadn’t been to in a year or 2. As we got there we noticed a new steel gate there. So we hopped over it with Tree passing me our gear. As we started getting set up and I was walking closer to the house I suddenly heard something breathing loudly. So I turned on my headlamp and saw 2 big eyes looking at me. I froze and realized it was a young bull. I backed away and said forget the house haha! We did take a couple of pics quickly in the yard and left as the bull started snorting and running around in circles. So anyways I took this shot safely on the highway..

I am so excited to see WOTN_AB back up and running, and I’m even more excited to be a moderator! My love of night photography started about two years ago and WOTN_ab was a huge inspiration to me. I love seeing all the amazing talent Alberta has to offer and can’t wait to share your night shots!

I was lying on a pebble beach inches from a small random pond in the middle of nowhere. It was about 3 am and I was periodically hitting the remote on my camera. I have a lot to learn about night sky photography but the experience is really what I value and what an amazing experience this was! . . . . #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightphotography #ig_canada #raw_canada #ig_nightphotography #milkyway #weownthenight_ab #explorealberta #albertaviews #albertacanada #totescanadian #alberta #canadianrockies #canadiangirl #1killershot #nightsky #backcountry #exploretocreate #yeg #yyc #dudewheresmycar #yeg_shooters #femaleshutterbugs

One last photo (for now!) from a Friday night shoot at the Muttart Conservatory before it closed for renovations for 18 months.

Been missing night photography for a bit now due to the non ideal weather conditions in Alberta. We tend to have a couple of hours of true darkness these long summer days which makes me miss doing star trails. Hopefully the skies cooperate and I can get out more to do some astros... #fantasticuniverse #eliteklub #weownthenight_ab #yourshotphotographer #canoncanada #earthfocus #splendid_earth #explorecanada #incredibleindia 🇮🇳 #ngtindia #earth_shotz #moods_in_frame #longexposure_shots #earth_deluxe #lpm #night_exposures #startrailchasers #star #astrophotography

#Repost @beckylynnsim • • • • • • Milky Way over Shadow Lake. My alarm went off at 1 am. I crawled out of the tent...clear skies and a zillion stars...yes! I grabbed the bear spray (there had been a large grizzly wandering along the trail when we hiked in) and set out for the lake, a short 3/4 km hike from the campsite. The Milky Way was out and the lake was calm, mirroring the starry dome above. All alone. Until suddenly there was loud splashing. Beaver, I thought. I’ve been scared by a beaver before. I turned my headlamp and flashlight that way. Not a beaver. Eyes stared back at me. A large creature was wading towards me. Curious, not predatory I told myself a bit uncertainly, gripping the bear spray. I talked loudly. The creature turned, and I could see...just a moose. And it turned and left. The reflection returned. I watched the stars until 2:30 when it started getting light. And then hiked back to my warm sleeping bag and starry dreams. . . #shadowlake #banffnationalpark #canadiancreatives #explorecanada #imagedofcanada #totescanadian #weownthenight_ab #wildlycreative #nightphotography #nightscaper #night_shooterz #milkyway #milkywaychasers #newmilkyway #astrophotography #night_excl #nightphotography_exclusive #beckylynnsim

Aurora with the moon rising near Alix. I really like the pink that’s on the edges.

Core of the Milky way reflects in the Surveyors Lake in the Kikomun Creek Provincial Park, BC. This is the fist time that I attempted to use the stacking technique in PS. The process is very labour intensive but well worth it, the detail in the image is unbelievable and it is almost noise free. 12 images stacked in PS taken with 50mm lens at 10s and f2.0 . . . #beautifulbcviews #beautifulbc 🍁 #nighttime #nightpics #milkywaychasers #milkyway #milkywaygalaxy #nightscape #milkywaypics #weownthenight #milkywaychasers #travelalberta #albertacanada #beautifulearth #explorecanada #milkyway #milkywaygalaxy #milkywayphotography #weownthenight_ab #bctourism #natgeoyourshot #canadiangeographic #opcmag #kikomuncreekprovincialpark #explorebcparks #weownthenight_ca #nightscaper #milkyway_tv

Yes!!! I'm definitely the first on instagram to post super exciting non cliché Canada day photos!. 💀. Hah! Take that instagram. I look forward to seeing all the Canada day photos that follow. 💀. Not much to tell, at the last second I decided to try and get some photos of the fireworks. Left myself 30 minutes to leave my place and get set up, and it was surprisingly easy. A mouse ran over my tripod and down between the rocks where we were sitting on. Gross.. 💀. I know it isn't an amazing display of fireworks but I didn't feel like trying to put several photos together to make it appear like there were crazy fireworks going off. 💀. #weownthenight_ab @canada #travelalberta #sharecangeo #nikon_canada #explorecanada #imagesofcanada #ipulledoverforthis #alberta #yyc #calgary #narcitycanada #canadiancreatives #everything_imaginable #sky_marvels #skysultans #moodygrams #moods_in_frame #mefototripods #dailyhiveyyc #albertaviews #explorealberta #bowriver #peacebridge #tourismcalgary #longexposure

Did you see the news tonight!?! Mason from CTV Lethbridge came out to join @uplift_adventures and I on our summer Starry Sky Photography Adventure last night! Still can't believe how much gear he brought to film the segment.... and I had thought I was bad for bringing too much camera gear before! Here is a quick edit on a pano of the milky way I shot with Mason near the end of the evening. We had a blast, beautiful clear skies, the wind died down and the stars shone so brightly! Super happy that everyone was able to capture some star images and excited to see some already being posted! Check out the shot @troyphilbert posted today! Thanks to everyone who joined! #explorethepass #explorealberta #findyourselfinthepass #gocrowsnest

Last night there were beautiful noctilucent clouds high in the sky, I ran out the door as quick as I could to capture them before they disappeared. Taken on the edge of Alix between 11:30pm And midnight.

Can’t toss up a good black and white moment 🖤 • • • Esther, Ab. June 2019. They always say to take time for yourself and that’s exactly what I did a couple of weeks ago. The neat thing about Esther is that it’s a mesh between a fully functioning farm yard and a single road forming the remains of the little hamlet. Amazing country. I can’t wait to go back and visit again one day. #abandonedalberta

We recently headed out on the shortest night of the year to shoot some astro. With it being such a short night it didn't leave us with much of a window! There was only about a 30 minute period in which it was dark enough to shoot the milky way before the moon rose. The only lights illuminating the sky were the stars and the town lights, casting an orange glow over the clouds above.

Stettler Bullfighters Competition 2019 kicked off the @stettlersws on Thurs. June 6. Eight talented fighters competed from all over Alberta. Bullfighters are the guys who protect riders after they get bucked off by means of distraction but as the classic term of rodeo clown sounds, they also provide comic relief depending on the bullfighter hired. In a competition setting, there are no bull riders. It’s simply the bull and the bullfighter squaring off to obtain style points. For the ECA Review. #rodeotime

Last week I finally spotted my first Noctilucent clouds of the year. It was a mild display and did not last long. I’m hoping for more clear nights to see bigger displays soon.

Dark or Bright?🌙☀️ @heaven.and.yurt is an off the grid, fully self-sustaining isolated campsite nestled in the beautiful @crowsnestpass mountains. Consisting of two yurts, one with beds, a kitchen, sitting area, and table. And the other features a hot shower, sink, and more kitchen gear. Peaceful would be an understatement as the only living things we saw were deer and a new-born fawn. Super stoked to have had this experience and to share it with you guys. Full Yurt trip photos dropping this week! Next week @bookofbrett and I will be dropping a trip highlight video as well! Keep your eyes peeled 😏 Shoutout to: @heaven.and.yurt @explorethepass @crowsnestpass @travelalberta
