Alex Cherney - Reflections. Lake Tyrrel

Reflections. Lake Tyrrel from Alex Cherney on Vimeo.

"Lake Tyrrel is a salt lake in the Mallee region of Victoria, Australia. The area was once home to Boorong people and the name "Tyrrel" is the Boorong word for sky. When there is water in the lake on a cloudless still night the whole sky can be seen reflected in the water."

The all-night time lapse shows setting Venus, followed by the the bright band of stars and dark nebulae of our Milky Way galaxy and then Jupiter in the morning. The ground becomes softly illuminated by the Moon light around 3 am."
