Ever wonder what a dinosaur looked like at night? Wonder no more!
This is a real photograph, well actually its about 30 some photos stitched together. The foreground is a life-sized T-Rex model filmed with the Milky Way. So yes, this is an actual panoramic picture taken at the same location at the same time without any added light source for the purists amongst us.
I spent a lot of time to remove all trace of human artifacts from the pictures. Bridges, light pollution, railroad tracks, overhead power lines, giant power pylons, planes, satellite trails and more all were removed to make a scene that is as free as possible from modern life.
I did all of this to give you something that has never actually been seen but often imagined (at least by me.)
Why did I do this labor of love? Because I love dinosaurs, I mean who doesn’t? Since I was a child when I played with my little plastic dinosaurs and wondered about their world. What did it look like? What did they look like?
Finally, as I was sitting under the Milky Way in wildly remote areas, my mind switched to what would the sky have looked like then? With them in it? There are no realistic photos or even drawings that exist. Now they do. I have a whole series of these (10 images) I will be releasing over the next 10 weeks.
If you are in the media or you know a media outlet that may be interested in running with these let me know. I’d love someone to feature these as they will get increasingly better. I’m saving the best for last 🙂 Please enjoy, like and comment!
