It's been far too long since I posted a landscape image. Most of my photography documents family life but I do get out, sometimes..... I recently spent a week with family at Joshua Tree National Park and wanted to enjoy some nice dark skies for a change.
Image details: Sky - 14mm, f/2.8, 4 minutes, ISO 800, 6 exposures, tracked a few feet in front of the monolith with an Astrotrac Foreground - 17mm, f/14, ISO 400 (windy), 1/5 sec, single exposure same morning at twilight I took sky and land images with both the 14mm Samyang and 17mm ts-e, knowing the advantages of each for this shot, hoping a single lens would do the job. The 17mm had too much coma during review onsite so I switched to the 14mm Samyang. In post I played with the 14mm's foreground keystoning and tired of the process quickly. After cropping the composite image for composition, the shifted 17mm simply gave a superior distortion free result.(hoa da pha le )
For astronomy buffs, Saturn is seen at the upper right of Scorpius. In the middle of Sagittarius is a recently discovered supernova, Nova Sagittarii 2015 No. 2, which is visible to the naked eye.

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
