Random question, If you could go back in time and spend only 5 mins with your 13 year old self, What would you do? What would you say?⠀ (And lets forget any sort of break in the speed force, and rapturing the fabric of time and space by traveling back and talking to yourself) (Purely hypothetical) lol⠀ ⠀ ⠀ One of my favorite adventures and steel wool spins. Had some amazing times with great people staring at the stars making fire.⠀ #MyCanonStory #CanonFanPhoto ⠀ Photo Details @Canonusa⠀ Camera: Canon EOS 6D⠀ Lens: #Canon EF 14mm f2.8⠀ Aperture: f8⠀ ISO: 100⠀ Shutter Speed: 8 sec⠀ Focal Length: 14mm⠀ ⠀ @AbandonedEarth @allabandoned @abandon @abandonagram @urbexpeople @urbexnesia_ @spun_ups⠀ @lightjunkies @longexposure_shots @night.sh00terz @night_shooterz @agameoftones @ig_shotz_le⠀ ⠀ #allabandoned #lightjunkies #steelwool #long_exposure #photooftheday #AGameofTones #spun_ups #urbexpeople 1#urbexnesia_ #urbex #urbex_rebels #itsabandoned #abandonedplaces #supreme_nightshots #longexpoelite #ig_shotz_le #amazingphotohunter #longexposure_shots #nightimages ##night_shooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #nightphotography #night_excl #steelwoolphotography #steelwoollandmarks

"Contact"⠀ When landed upon the alien planet, we asked them for guidance. ⠀ The Entity said "You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other."⠀ ⠀ Camera Details:⠀ Camera: Canon EOS 6D⠀ Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L ⠀ Aperture: f4⠀ ISO: 6400⠀ Shutter Speed: 20 seconds⠀ Focal Length: 24 mmUsed @lightpaintingbrushes

"My Virtual Space"⠀ ⠀ The game has changed. Most of us are now connected into the Matrix, The Oasis, where you can create your own world. You are who you write yourself to be. You can be anyone. But who are you in real life, does your digital character reflect your actual character. Are you creating a lie, believing it, and turning into that lie which in turns becomes the truth of who you become. Time doesn't stop, it doesn't speed up and it doesn't slow down, so don't live in your virtual space and waste your life away in front of a screen. Go out and live a bit, see the beautiful things life has to offer. If you're always looking down at your screen you'll only see the stars when they fall like rain. ⠀ This picture represents My Virtual Space, Its a world Ive created, but also a world I live in. Ive been very conscious in my photography to represent who I am, what I do, my passions and what i believe in when living in the real world. The reason this picture specifically is My Virtual Space is because ive been cooped up at home, due to the rain and clouds the last 2 months Ive had to go through my hard drive for astro photos to edit that I havent yet to keep me from going insane of not being able to go out and shoot the stars. 99% of my images are Single shot pictures, which mean I take 1 image, edit it as a whole, and its done. This one is different. Its 2 10 shot Panoramas taken at different times and blended together. It was always the goal to Blend these 20 images together to make this photograph before I ever went out shooting. Nice to know i could finally get around to putting it together.⠀ #MyCanonStory #CanonFanPhoto ⠀ Photo Details @Canonusa⠀ Camera: Canon 6d⠀ Lens : #Canon 50mm F1.4⠀ Exposure Time: 120 seconds ⠀ Focal Length: Sky: 50mm FG:14mm⠀ ISO 6400⠀ Apature: F3.2⠀ Foreground 14mmForeground 10 image panoSky 10 image pano⠀Gear: Skywatcher Star Adventurer found at @highpointscientific⠀ ⠀ #nasa #astronomy #astronaut #space #galaxy #cosmos #nebula #universe #solarsystem #planets #astrophotography #science #hubble #stars #milkyway #outerspace #spacex #iss #telescope #interstellar #nightsky #nasabeyond #astrophysics #esa #constellation #rocket #planet

Question Of The Day: Were you closer to your dad or mum?⠀ So... I know Ive posted this photo before, but today...theres a story why. On November 1rst 2 years ago my mentor, my best friend, My adventure buddy, and pretty much a second dad, since the day I was born passed away. Jack was the man responsible for me being who I am today. Adventurous and excited to tackle what ever challenges I have in front of me is everything he was and im glad it rubbed off on me. He passed away in moments of a heart attack and not 1 of the 571 days goes by where I don't think of him. Its been so hard on all of us that we put off his memorial for a few months...was the only funeral out of dozens that i spoke at. You never really say goodbye once...you say it over and over and over again...every night.⠀ I was recently Interviewed by VOYAGE LA which this picture was featured below a story of how I mention Jack and his influence on my life. ⠀ This one is for you buddy.⠀ ⠀ "A Universe in a bottle"⠀ This was a hot summer night in the Trona Pinnacles, California. #MyCanonStory #CanonFanPhoto ⠀ Photo Details @Canonusa⠀ Camera: #Canon EOS 6D⠀ Lens: Canon EF L ‑ 24mm‑105mm ‑ F/4.0⠀ Aperture: f4 ⠀ ISO: 4000⠀ Shutter Speed: 25 seconds⠀ Focal Length: 105mm⠀ ⠀ #artofvisuals #longexpoelite #expofilm #theimaged #awesomeearth #earthofficial #hubs_united #theglobewanderer #ourplanetdaily #earthfocus #randommagazines #earthpix #earthofficial #shotzdelight #nakedplanet #beautifuldestinations #visualambassadors #nightphotography_exclusive #nightphotography #astrophotography #canon_photos #longexposure #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #natgeospace #fantasticuniverse #Universetoday

"11:11"⠀ This picture is dedicated to the wonderful Dominique Nichole Love, who's been my partner in crime, my cosmic traveler, adventure buddy, my 11:11 wish, my player 2, My happy thought, and my girlfriend. She's stuck it out with me through the good times and bad, and we've got through the toughest of problems holding hands. She's always down to make amazing memories and pick up and go anywhere with me no mater how long ill be gone for. 1 week in the wilderness, she's got it, 2 weeks in the wilderness and 3000 miles traveled, she owned it! She will even be supportive of me going even if she cant. She will even come out to where im shooting the night sky just to fall asleep under the stars with me for a few hours while my camera is doing its thing and then pack up and go home. She gets along with my friends and is someone I'm always proud to introduce. She constantly accepts my continuous craving for wings and burritos. She supports my life, my passions and the things i do. She accepts me for me and never forces me to be someone im not. We may have our differences like everyone else but for the most part we accept and love each other for our differences. Thank you for being the wonderful, talented, kind, forgiving, gorgeous, intelligent girl, i get to call a girlfriend. I love you.⠀ This picture was taken at Scotts Lake up in Oregon on a 2 week trip with Skylar Keck, We drove around everywhere looking for firewood with no luck considering be wouldn't cut our own. We made it back to camp, made some soup, got eaten my Mosquitos and shared some great stories. Memories ill never forget. Weirdly enough, Dom and I dont have many pictures together so the ones i have like this one, I hold dear. ⠀ ⠀ #nasa #astronomy #astronaut #space #galaxy #cosmos #nebula #universe #solarsystem #planets #astrophotography #science #hubble #stars #milkyway #outerspace #spacex #iss #telescope #interstellar #nightsky #nasabeyond #astrophysics #esa #constellation #rocket #planet #UniverseToday #Milkywaychasers #FantasticUniverse

"Sunset Moon"⠀ On January 20th 2019 from 7pm to 11pm as most of you know we had a total Lunar Eclipse. Such a beautiful sight to see where the earth falls in line between the sun and the moon. The sun hits the earths atmosphere on the sides of the earth which is either sunset or sunrise and those light rays bend around earth and hit the moon creating a nice red glow while the earth is casting a shadow upon it. The whole total eclipse lasted around 4 hours and totality lasted around 45 mins. I was so blessed to have some amazing people around me to enjoy this experience and make a beautiful memory with. @Rafalcwiok, @teeruddle, his daughter skylar, and my beautiful lady @dominichole all were champs braving the cold with me. They sat and watched it with me from beginning to end. Hope You All Enjoy.⠀ Love,⠀ -Mack Murdoc⠀ #MyCanonStory #CanonFanPhoto ⠀ Photo Details @Canonusa⠀ Camera: #Canon EOS 60D⠀ Lens: Explore Scientific 480mm⠀ Aperture: f6.0⠀ ISO and Shutter Speed varied for each picture ⠀ Focal Length: 480mm⠀ #artofvisuals #longexpoelite #theimaged #awesomeearth #earthofficial #theglobewanderer #ourplanetdaily #earthfocus #randommagazines #earthpix #earthofficial #shotzdelight #nakedplanet #beautifuldestinations #dwmonents #visualambassadors #nightphotography_exclusive #nightphotography #astrophotography #totality #bloodmoon #lunareclipse #supermoon #superbluebloodmoon #eclipse #lunareclipse #Universetoday

"Wings Of Icarus"⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ For those who dont know the story of Icarus let me fill you in. Icarus, the son of Daedalus were very popular in greek Mythology. They were highly regarded for his amazing sculptures and brilliant inventions of MANY MANY things. But one day they were sentenced to spend the rest of their lifes upon a tall tower as a prisoner for creating a Minitar (half man half bull). Daedalus being a brilliant inventor constructed a pair of wings and sealed them with Wax So they can fly out of their tower to freedom. He was told not to fly too near the Sun or the wax will melt, or too close to the water as it will dampen the wings making it to heavy to use. He flew too close to the sun, his wings melted, and he fell to the Sea.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ The moral of the story is life is a gift, and maintaining a balance with everything in moderation will ensure a long one. The wings represent the father giving his son life; the ocean and the sun represent the extremes of denying and overindulging yourself, flying in between is the answer. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ Myself, Skylar Keck and Dominique Nichole Love went on a night time adventure to the oldest lake in North America. The lake is over 1 million years old. Mono Lake which is known for their HUGE pillars of Calcium Deposits called Tufa Towers. This lake is also 3x saltier then the ocean. As we were filming part of the vlog i had myself and Domonique get into the water to shoot some fire pyro long exposures next to the Tufas while getting the fire reflection in the water. As we were there we could feel the hundreds of mini shrimp eating the bacteria off our feet. It was weird to say the least. Then once the sun was fully gone and we were engulfed in pitch black, the moths came to feed on the shrimp near the surface of the water... which in turn brought of dozens and dozens of adorable bats. That were wooshing past our heads getting our food but not interfering with us. Hearing them make thier clicking noises using sonar and echolocation to find their food, was such a treat to see. We lightpainted with the tufas and got some pretty wicked Milky Way Shots. It was a killer adventure for sure.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⠀ #MyCanonStory #CanonFanPhoto

This shot was a mission, we had many different versions. some turned out great.. and some were a disaster but we were determined to get the perfect shot. ⠀ #MyCanonStory #CanonFanPhoto ⠀ Photo Details @Canonusa⠀ Camera: Canon EOS 6D⠀ Lens: #Canon EF 14mm f2.8⠀ Aperture: f8⠀ ISO: 100⠀ Shutter Speed: 8 sec⠀ Focal Length: 14mm⠀ Model @wolverine_11 ⠀ Orb @chrisbauer_lightpainter⠀ Steel Wool @gazoo81⠀ ⠀ @AbandonedEarth @allabandoned @abandon @abandonagram @urbexpeople @urbexnesia_ @spun_ups⠀ @lightjunkies @longexposure_shots @night.sh00terz @night_shooterz @agameoftones @ig_shotz_le⠀ ⠀ #allabandoned #lightjunkies #steelwool #long_exposure #photooftheday #AGameofTones #spun_ups #urbexpeople 1#urbexnesia_ #urbex #urbex_rebels #itsabandoned #abandonedplaces #supreme_nightshots #longexpoelite #ig_shotz_le #amazingphotohunter #longexposure_shots #nightimages ##night_shooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #nightphotography #night_excl #steelwoolphotography #steelwoollandmarks

"A Theory Of The Universe"⠀ OK bare with me for a min. SO Atoms, are one of the smallest building blocks of life. The contain a nucleus which has protons and neutrons in there and electrons that revolve around. Our solar system has a sun in the center and planets and moons revolve around it. Our galaxy has black hole in its center and solar systems, stars, and so much more revolve around it. ⠀ Do atoms know its bigger purpose? Do they know that they are so much bigger than just a neutrons, proton and electron. Take for example Hydrogen, One of the most Simplistic atoms but its one of the most important. You need it for life to survive. Our body is 3/4ths hydrogen. Everyone living thing in the universe (as far as we know) needs that 1 atom to exists. Hydrogen which is the most common element in the universe. But heres the thing.. there are 100 trillion Atoms in 1 red blood cell, and there are 32 trillion cells in the human body on average. So... Does a atom know its part of a cell, or the bigger picture a human. ⠀ So heres my theory, What if we are part of something so much bigger than us but its so big we would never see it, or feel it? What if our solar system is just a proton, our galaxy is just an atom, and our universe was just a cell to something so much bigger? What if 32 trillion universes made up some other living being that lives its life in its world just as we do? What if we were just another element in their periodic table? Its a fascinating Concept to think about⠀ What do you think? Whats your ideas and theories?⠀ ⠀ .#MyCanonStory #CanonFanPhoto @Canonusa⠀ Camera: Canon 6d⠀ Lens : #Canon 50mm F1.4 & Canon 14mm⠀ Exposure Time: 120 seconds pano⠀ Focal Length: Sky: 50mm FG:14mm⠀ ISO 1600⠀ Apature: F2.8⠀ Gear: Skywatcher Star Adventurer from @highpointscientific⠀ ⠀ #ourplanetdaily #longexpoelite #TeamHighpoint #astrophotography #longexposure #visualambassadors #night_excl #nightsky #sahara #shotzdelight #artofvisuals #canon_photos #ournaturedays #ig_shotz #tentree #lensbible #exceptional_pictures #nightphotography #roamtheplanet #earthofficial #earthpix #nightscape #nightscaper #fantasticuniverse #universetoday #natgeo #YourShotPhotographer

Was a great time under the stars just waiting for the Milky Way to perfectly align with the road i decided to pull out some clear plastic tubes i had in my car, put some flashlights in there and wave them around. Then had Sierra Tinsley Model for me. Funny thing is... this would have been suuuuuccch a epic shot If Jeff Jaimes (AKA Fireteam Jericho) decided not to troll me and change my Aperture to 7.1 from 4.0 where it was at. I never noticed until i got home and started editing.#MyCanonStory #CanonFanPhoto ⠀ Photo Details⠀ Camera: @Canonusa EOS 6D⠀ Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L ⠀ Aperture: f7.1 (dam it Jeff)⠀ ISO: 1600⠀ Shutter Speed: 5 seconds⠀ Focal Length: 25 mm #landscape #lanscape_captures #landscapephotography #amazing_longexpo #milkyway #milkywaychasers #longexposure_shots #nightphotography #ig_shotz#earthdeluxe #jaw_dropping_shots #destination_wow #nightscaper #nightscape #longexpoelite #longexposhots #longexpo_addiction #earthpix#longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #tubetribe #tubestories #lightpainting #freezelight #longexposure #gramslayers #moodygrams

A few nights ago i spontaniously wanted to shoot in Joshua Tree. I called upa few friends who i know are always super down for any adventure, any time. Monica Vidaurre, Jenene Curry, Christie Newby, and Dominique Nichole Love got in the car and drove 3 hours with me in the dark to White Tank Campground, we parked our car, i gave everyone head lights and he hiked in the desert to find the very well known Arch Rock. they found a nice place to settle down, put down their pads, eat some food, play some games under a beautiful night sky.I on the other hand was on a mission to get some good shoots,s o go figures i was climbing on rocks, off exploring and trying to be creative with lights when i came up with this idea. This picture symbolizes the cage of comfort (The Orb) we all have and for the most part, are stuck in. Its a cage that keeps us doing the same thing, staying in the same city and stops us from doing something risky and crazy. It keeps us in our comfort zone. Doing something spontaneous like randomly leaving in the midle of the night to go hike in the desert to me is leaving your comfort cage, its breaking free to explore the unknown. The Idea is this Light Man has broken free of his cage and for the first time in a long time can look upon the great unknown, the vastness of mystery and dream and ponder things outside his normal frame of mind. We should all be like the Light Man and open up ourself to new things, take risks, be adventurous and see what is out there for us to discover.
