Thank you Jehan,

NYC after 9-11 changed so much and the restrictions for photographer are many, I noticed also the signs but I never had any problem while taking pictures on/of the bridges.

Same rules (no parking, no walking, photography prohibited) from the bridge in these two pics in Tacoma, the only way I could get these two shots was smack in middle of bridge with no walkway or shoulder to pull over. Third shot wasn't as tricky. Pics couple years old...







Of course I think from looking at Marcello bridge pics those were off the hwy kinda like my third pic. Extremely good job Marcello!
Thank you so much Jack for the kind words, I like your pictures also my favorites are 1 and 2, you are blessed to have such a beautiful landscape where you live.

You'd like the D500, which I have, that replaced the D300 (about 7 years late). Awesome camera.

I will for sure, I went to B&H the other and I didn't touch the one on display, I don't want to add another one to my collection.

Ah... Stunning shot Marcelo! Could you tell me how you got that shot, settings and all... the best I could do was this one at Reflection Lakes last fall:

Jack,

Basically you need a wide angle with an aperture of 2.8 or 1.4 in the best case, a tripod, a place with out light pollution, shoot at high ISO - 3200 or higher and long exposures - I usually use 20 or 25 secedes max to avid starts trails.

Identify where is the Milky Way, set the tripod, use manual focus because in deep darkness imposible to auto focus. try some shoots and make sure the starts are sharp.

The exif info for this picture is the following:

ISO 3200, 25 seconds, f2.8, 14mm.

You will find great info in the following link:

https://petapixel.com/2016/01/16/how...the-milky-way/

Let me know if you have questions.

Marcelo

Thanks so much for the info Marcelo!
I plan to use that info to get some night shots at Mt Rainier and Mt Adams this summer. I got some nice moon shots at Mt Adams and when I go again this year I'm afraid I'll have full moon again that will ruin the start shots?
About five pics down, you'll see several moon shots over the mountain I got.
