Erik Kuna’s photography never fails to remind us of the vastness of this universe. The glowing night sky alone is enough to make this our Gram of the Week!

Erik goes into depth about some of the techniques used to make this shot, which includes working with Photo Pills and precise camera settings.

The Dark Horse Nebula, like a watchman, clings to the Milky Way core and adds to the detail that is our Galaxy. And when I look deeply into that vastness, I wonder and amazing at the majesty of its creation. Makes me think of songs and lyrics that alway try and capture the feelings like; “But when I look at the stars When I look at the stars When I look at the stars I see someone else When I look at the stars The stars I feel like myself.” – – Photo Credit: @erikkuna – crop sensor @canonusa 70D from 2013 and 16mm f2.8 @canonusa lens and a #platypod with @photopills , @photoshop and #starrylandscapestacker – Stars/Milky Way is a 60 frame stack at f2.8, 10 seconds, iso 12800 and foreground frame from astronomical twilight an hour before at f8, iso 100 and 30 seconds. – #milkyway #milkywayphotography #milkywaychasers #milkywaychaser #milkywaygalaxy #zionnationalpark @milkywaychasers @milkywayshooters #space #nebula #cosmos #cosmicperspective @kelbyonepics @platypodtripods #longexposure @longexposure_shots
