Today I dedicate this night skyscape to Bob Shannon (eqshannon). Believe me I shot it myself over our terrace at night time. The idea here is 100% mine and came in my mind when I was dreaming. Hope you will like.

Hi Haraprasan!
This is a very nice dedication to Bob, I am sure he will like it :)
According to the photo I have to say that this is very artistic picture! The sky looks very original! Great effect of "dancing light"!
Best regards,

PS. Added after 1 minute: you are right! Today we are neighbors :>

Woow what a stunning capture of a skyscape Haraprasan. Great one! It is realy the best for dreaming my friend:) TFS. Cheers,


Hi Haraprasan,

Very impressive picture of noctural sky, almost like Northern Lights. Very effective lighting and good composition.

Hi Haraprasan,

I am sure that Bob will just love this amazing night sky! It looks like the sky in a dream - the shadows and shadings are beautiful. This is the kind of shot I could look at over and over again and my imagination will see something different each time. The little yellow flowers add a wonderful touch.

Hello Haraprasan,

Very nice idea. That was certainly a windy night. Good exposure and colours. I will try once. Not tonight, there is no clouds at all.

Just excellent, Haraprasan!
You know what I did as soon as I saw this pic? I went into the garden in the dark and with my tripod, camera and remote shutter release shot my own long-exposure of the clouds :-D It is a fantastic technique and produces some really eye-catching shots such as this!

The blurred clouds really pull you into the shot.
Perfect exposure.
Fabulous atmosphere.
Great dedication to Bob.
You're an inspiration!!

Hello Haraprasan,
This is a really lovely capture created by a dreamer! :-) It reminds me of the Northern Lights we get here up the north, very beautiful patterns in the sky. Well done and a fine dedication!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

I am so tardy...You would not believe...well I guess you would believe...here you have dedicated a nice image for me and somehow I have missed it...thanks ever so much. I do appreciate the thought and the image.....there is an almost Northern Lights or Aurora quality to this. I have a few images from a good friend who lives in Homer Alaska and makes a good living selling Aurora shots...he is listed somewhere on the net under auroradude. Thanks very so much once more HP!
