Milky Way above Rauris.  Stars drifting above Raurisertall, taken from balcony of our pension at Rauris. While the sky is relatively dark here, the whole impression is spoiled by one single poorly set-up street lamp. More about light polution and dark sky protection here. Processed from raw (DNG) files; to learn about settings I used to capture this sequence see my Starry Nights above Southern Aftrica gallery - the settings are the same. The objects flying or cruising across the sky are satellites and airplanes, not meteors ;)

Cb from Edelweissspitze. A distant Cumulonimbus cloud, captured from the top of Edelweissspitze above the Grossglockner Road. The Cb forms an interesting, not that frequent double-level anvil, and also pops up a smaller overshooting top at the early stage of its evolution, followed by a weak splash of jumping cirrus after decay of the overshooting top. Also, at the later stage notice the distinct downward motions at the bottom parts of the Cb anvil, which would very likely appear from underneath as mamma clouds. Processed from raw (DNG) files.

Dancing clouds I.  Early morning clouds forming and swirling above mountain ridge near Brennkogel (3014m, the highest peak at left), with Fuscher Törl at the bottom part of the movie. Captured from the top of Edelweissspitze.

2013 - 08 - 07    07:40 - 08:30 UTC  (0h 50m) HD 720

Dancing clouds II.  The same as previous timelapse movie, taken somewhat later, with lens of the camera set to its maximum width. The last timelapse movie of our trip ...
