I spent the night of December 21 doing what I love most – shooting the sky. Completely impromptu at 1am, I drove with a friend to the nearby archeological site of Muyil, 25 km from Tulum, Mexico, woke up the sleeping Mayan guard and convinced him to let me shoot the deserted pyramid in the middle of the jungle. My friend Masha did an amazing job light painting the pyramid with her mobile phone. Here’s one of the resulting images of winter solstice sky at Mayan ruins of Muyil, Quintana Roo.
Laser light beaming from ‘Time and Space 2012’ – huge international psycho-trance music festival held for three days in Tankah bay. With the help of northern wind, the massive sound from there could be heard as far as CESiaK in Sian Ka’an biosphere 20km south, where I took this photo.
The December 21st star-chasing marathon shooting session ended at 4am in Sian Ka’an biosphere. Many thanks to the Milky Way for revealing itself in full glory above and beyond.
