Carissima Lisa,

Yes, a happy accident indeed! This image would have been good enough without the red torchlight (and I'm sure that you took quite a few other photographs without the "offending" fellow astronerd "spoiling" them) but the deep red light picking out the details in this sandy shore and the water's edge certainly adds some very bold and striking foreground interest while the Milky Way, spectacularly seen high above, looks down on you.

A stunning image, very well seen and taken and with a very happy accident too!


Kind Regards,


P.S. Thanks for the exif data too. That 14mm Samyang lens must be a cracker, being able to resolve such incredible sharpness wide open at f/2.8. And not a hint of any noise with that 5D Mk III at ISO 4000!

Smile To tyro: Samyang Lens

Caro Giovanni

Thank you for your very kind words on the photo.

The Samyang lens is the go-to lens if you want to shoot the stars. And it only costs AUD300, about STG150. It's a fantastic buy. The other lenses they make are excellent too, I'm looking at some at the moment.

The lenses are under the Samyang brand here but might be known in Europe as Rokkinon.

Yes the 5D goes okay with high ISOs but the Sony A7 is the gun camera for this type of photography. The sensor is incredible. I had a try of my friend's Sony. Wow the info and light you can pull out of a RAW file is without peer

Well that's the limit of my techy talk. I'm starting to sound like my astronerd friends.

Un abbraccio
