ON THE SHORES OF THE GALACTIC OCEAN

Quite a view of the Milky Way from the Big Island of Hawaii. As Mr. Krattli describes it, it was his first shot of the Milky Way that evening and nailed it as he was unsure of exactly where it was. The only light painting in the image is actually from a passing car that illuminated the palms in the exposure.
I can’t help looking at photos like this and immediately desire to get away from my light polluted skies and give these photos a shot myself. I recommend that anyone with a manual camera and a small variety of lenses do so for sure. Try different settings, locations, lighting etc…..see what you can come up with.
Just beautiful work, and I posted his links below; check em!
