The Journey for me - it's late in the milky way season, both with a setting milky way and also a setting crescent moon. There have been many changes in my life this year and it's time to reflect - but realise that under the magnificent stars that my problems are not so large.

I went out to explore a series of dunes south of Cervantes in Western Australia. With the expected setting crescent moon, I had visualised the textures of the dunes being brought out a bit with the moon lighting the foreground.

While hiking around the location with a substantial amount of gear in my pack I used a hand held GPS to mark locations of interest for shooting. I always try to scout while it is still light to help to see the better locations. To try something a little different to assist with the visualisation of a panorama, I used the panorama photo function of my phone. This is just because I know that even with my experience with ultrawide panoramas, I still have to consider how the panorama will distort.
