Stack of 3 shots with the Nikon D750. From the village of Castellet-en-Luberon, on this latitude during summer nights it looks as if the constellation ‘sits’ on the northern horizon.
A day at the Efteling theme park in Kaatsheuvel, The Netherlands: what a gorgouos opportunity to practice some night scenes skills! All pics taken with a Nikon D750 handheld, various lenses. Manual White balance.
I was so lucky to spend some time of in the south of France this summer. Location was the camping site ‘Les Bardons’ to the north side of the Grand Luberon, at an altitude of 550m.
Having camped here for 25+ years I know this area to be very, very consistent in blue skies. Unfortunately also light pollution is marching in from Aix-en-Provence, and Avignon, Apt. The mean SQM in August would be between 21.15 and 21.30
