Amazing, other worldly photos - an exciting and refreshingly different group of images.

Great shots. Wish our skies were clear like that as we've had nothing but flat blanket cloud. Keep up the great work.

Thank you very much - I really appreciate your feedback! Good time to be pentaxian, just pre ordered one K-1 for myself and I'm excited to use it for astrophotography as well as a professional (wedding photographer)!

And for u wanting to know the settings: mainly 5-20 seconds exposure, f/1.8-2.0, ISO 400-800, 18mm within tripod of course.
Photos were taken in Pudasjärvi (syöte ski resort) in Finland.
