Palms of the Milky Way by erezmarom Palms of the Milky Way by erezmarom
You are welcome to follow my Facebook page, where you can get a first look at my images, as well as get all the info about my work, photo tours and other news.


After a great sunset in Tayrona, I started getting ready for the night. There was one big problem though - the only two sleeping options there are a hammock (incredibly uncomfortable) and a tent (more comfortable but impossibly hot and humid. I gave it a quick thought and decided, quite simply, not to sleep.
The decision proved quite beneficial, since if I had slept, I'd have missed a spectacular night. This is one of the first shots that followed. The tall, lush palm trees served as a curious foreground, adorning the clearly-visible milky way. There are definite advantages to being a night owl!

It's pretty sweet overall... ergonomics and build quiality fantastic, sensor is sadly inferior to Nikon's D800E.

Nice, I have the 7D, love it, would love to upgrade at some point, but my focus is mainly on the video, which the MKIII is pretty much top of the line at this point.
