Radio telescopes of the Very Large Array in New Mexico. This shot was used as part of a set design for an episode of Season 2 of the Netflix show Stranger things. You can see a screen grab of that here.
After months of being under a non-disclosure agreement it can finally be told – two of my photos were used in the set design of the Netflix show “Stranger Things 2“, episode 8, at about the 20 minute mark. The photos are Dish 3 and Contact. Screen grabs below – something a bit spooky but hopefully not too spoiler-y for Halloween…

About the photo. A group of radio telescopes, part of the VLA (Very Large Array) near Socorro, New Mexico, just after sunset. This is an HDR (high dynamic range) image constructed from three exposures.

I wanted a view from near the base of the antenna so I had to use a four shot panorama to get everything in. You may see dark streaks against the sky – it was snowing as I was shooting. Normally on a panorama I would do a bit more correcting of the geometry and cropping but I liked the effect of the curved sides of the image that were present after the first stitch-together of the shots. Shots were taken with my Nikon D800 and Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, ISO 100, 24mm, f/6.3, 1/160 second exposure.
