Photographer takes images of the night sky and Milky Way, Australia - Mar 2016
*Full story: http://www.rexfeatures.com/nanolink/s7hi
A lone man looks up at thousands of stars in the Milky Way - in a self-portrait with a difference. Photographer Michael Goh visited a variety of salt lakes where he set up his camera to capture the night sky, with each photo taking up to 30 minutes to take. The 45-year-old, who also works in finance, was able to capture himself in the panoramic photos using a handheld wireless remote. The salt lakes, in The Pinnacles, in Nambung National Park, Western Australia, create a mirror-like effect with the stars and mountains reflected perfectly in the still water. The Milky Way, the galaxy that contains our solar system, is estimated to contain up to 400 billions stars, although some astronomers have argued the number to be as high as one trillion. Stars, gas, dust, and planets all make up the Milky Way with the oldest stars understood to be as old as the universe itself.

Photographer Lisa Michele Burns described her experience of the caves: "The sound of glacial water rolling over ice and pebbles was the perfect soundtrack for what I can only describe as what it must feel like to stand inside a diamond. Sparkling walls, a ceiling with frozen ice bubbles and a shimmering light shining from the small gap where I entered."
Europe's largest ice caves, Iceland - 18 Mar 2016
FULL COPY: http://www.rexfeatures.com/nanolink/s8nx
A photographer has captured a series of dazzling photos of Europe's largest ice cave.
Australian photographer Lisa Michele Burns took the photos whilst travelling to Jokulsarlon, Iceland.
Lisa said: "It has a surface area of 8,100km squared and an average thickness of 400m, the glacier has a varied landscape of mountains, valleys and even volcanoes covered in ice. At the southern end is the majestic Jokulsarlon Ice Lagoon where giant icebergs float out to sea. It's also where you begin the ice cave adventure."
"Having entered backwards to safely navigate the ice chunks on the way down into the cave, I turned to witness a scene I never imagined possible.
"The sound of glacial water rolling over ice and pebbles was the perfect soundtrack for what I can only describe as what it must feel like to stand inside a diamond. Sparkling walls, a ceiling with frozen ice bubbles and a shimmering light shining from the small gap where I entered."
