Experimenting with some new surfaces, been sitting on this lil wood slice for months, and I still haven't settled on what to do next with it... Planning to start exploring new mediums, styles, and forms.

Starry nights in Maui

Starry nights in Maui

This crazy medical school life seems to have no breaks. But once in a while you simply have to smile at all the beauty around you. Take a deep breath and enjoy the present moment.

I’m pleased to share the launch of my new astrophotography website, nightskydan.com, along with a dedicated astrophotography account, @nightskydan. For those interested in my astro photos, and some of the behind the scenes stuff and reviews, feel free to follow me there! 
Pictured here in the first photo is part of the North America Nebula, and the Pelican Nebula in the second photo.
These were captured using a Celestron RASA 11” scope, a ZWO ASI294MC Pro camera, and the new Optolong L-eNhance dual-band pass narrowband filter.

Some timely and interesting research by ACSF member Vellachi A. Ganesan @valspal13 at the most recent ACSF conference @wrighttaliesin “Light: The Ephemeral, the Ethereal, and Beyond”

Ganesan argues that “Historically, night time has been the era of magic and mystery, with direct connection to the entire cosmos. With star-studded night skies like a sea of glittering diamonds, and the full moon emanating soft light, the night has qualities of light that are different from the day. “ noting that the work of groups such as the International Dark Sky Organization based in Tuscon, AZ.

The spiritual significance and importance of protecting night light are evermore connected to the design of architecture and thus need to be considered carefully.

M16 - The Eagle Nebula

Full size image here: http://bit.ly/2RkumO7

Located at about 5700 LY from Earth, the Eagle Nebula is a huge stellar nursery brimming with stellar formation in the constellation Serpens. At its core, the famous Pillars of Creation, made famous by Hubble's groundbreaking photo, span several light years and contain thousands of protostars. 
This has been one target that I've revisited many times over the years, and likely will acquire even more data on this summer, as 100 minutes of this stunning object just isn't enough to do it justice. 
I've been hanging on to this one as it was shot over a week ago. It's been difficult to process without messing up and overdoing things. It's taken me several attempts to get a final result that I'm happy with. But I'm very pleased with the results with my new scope and look forward to even better images in the future.

Data:
Sky-Watcher Quattro 250P
Celestron CGX, guided
ZWO ASI 1600MC-Pro
50 x 2 min exposures. 
Shot at the @landacounty @DarkSkyViewing Area near Erinsville, Ontario

THE WIDEST HUES

A Vision, seeing as much 
with my feet 
and my stomach pulling me up 
the fickle hill
and over

While the web is weaving split infinity, each to each 
I see what wrecks and wings await 
at every step
well-absorbing me as much as I absorb them

When Goodfellow hermit thrush, that Grand Inquisitor, invites:

Have the exquisite marks formed upon you yet? No? 
Then keep opening—
strive ye with death
and silence

Not beyond despair, 
but spanning both dark 
and bright buffet

Form and fill 
your unique dimensions, earthedly

stretched just so taut 
and ache 
the good ache, Dyeing
yourself in the widest hues

Another day has almost come to a close.. I can honestly say, I am happy with how my Summer is going so far. For me having fun isn't about doing more. It's about doing less, and intentionally "being where my feet are" as Coach Tony Bennett would say.  So here's to more sunshine moments.
📷There two things I want you to know..
1. I am taking signups for photoshoots for the rest of this month, and July! Message me to book your place.
2. I love working with you all, and sharing my photos. If you enjoy my work please to go to my Noelle Brani Photography facebook page, and leave a review under the 'Reviews' tab. It would mean alot, and be a big help to me! #photographer #photography #photoftheday #sunset #sun #beauty #beautiful #sky #nightsky #sun #nature #naturephotography #naturephoto #work #workhard #business #businessowner #businesswoman #entrepreneur  #blog #review #reviews #facebook #message #dm #photoshoot #photoshoots #june #july #2019 #product

In life we all have a choice - to follow our dreams or to follow our fears. I always choose the former and will always continue to build towards a better future. 
KILL ANXIETY
STOP WORRYING ABOUT STUPID SHIT
STOP EXAGGERATING THE SITUATION
STOP WORRYING ABOUT WHAT IFS
HAVE A HEALTHY BODY, HEALTHY MIND
HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP AMONG OTHERS
BE MYSELF
STOP WORRYING ABOUT THINGS OUTSIDE OF MY CONTROL
LUCK IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PREPARATION MEETS OPPORTUNITY
NEVER BE AFRAID
NEVER MAKE A RASH DECISION
PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE 
BE HAPPY 
TRUST 
DONT PANIC

Quantos eus há em mim
Habitando em outras dimensões
Alimentados com minhas emoções
Mergulhados em minhas frustrações?

São vários, são infinitos
São universos distintos
