I've been missing dark skies and bright stars. Burlington's light pollution doesn't allow for milky way shots like this, but travel just a bit outside of town and you'll be able to see it clearly with the naked eye.
I was near the end of a several hour drive and it was nearing midnight. I couldn't help but take a few shots while stopping to stretch.
Nightscape by @cecphotos
Cracking Milky Way from the Eastern Sierras last new moon. This year's snowfall in the Sierras has made for some interesting conditions. The extra snowpack has taken extra time to melt and left many of the lakes still surrounded by snow even in early summer. This was a night where I definitely had to push myself to get out and get the shot. It was very windy at this lake and very cold in late hours of the night. I was very concerned about the stability of my tripod in the wind and had to hang my backpack from the tripod and hold it to make sure that it stayed steady for both my stars and foreground shots. It wasn't the ideal conditions for Milky Way shooting, but I made sure to go out and get a shot because I knew it would be worth it.
The next new moon is coming up fast. I still have availability for Milky Way instruction one-on-one in the field. Master the skills needed to take great night time shots. All of my private and small group workshops include in field instruction as well as editing. Set something up by visiting www.chrisewencrosby.com/workshops/asrtro1on1 or by sending me an email or DM.

Captured in the “visible light” from Cumeada Observatory, the image shows a sharp and colourful view of the Great Orion Nebula. Also known as M42, is a diffuse and large nebula complex situated in the Milky Way, in the constellation of Orion.Located at a distance of about 1350 light years, Orion is estimated to be 24 light years across, being the closest region of massive star formation to Earth.
And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, 'Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah ?'" He will say, "Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.
I said not to them except what You commanded me - to worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. And I was a witness over them as long as I was among them; but when You took me up, You were the Observer over them, and You are, over all things, Witness.
If You should punish them - indeed they are Your servants; but if You forgive them - indeed it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
And Zechariah and John and Jesus and Elias - and all were of the righteous.
The Jews say, "Ezra is the son of Allah "; and the Christians say, "The Messiah is the son of Allah ." That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?
They have taken their scholars and monks as lords besides Allah, and [also] the Messiah, the son of Mary. And they were not commanded except to worship one God; there is no deity except Him. Exalted is He above whatever they associate with Him.
Roaming the Pinelands with @jj.bowen and @dantefrattophotography. As we started making our way out to shoot, this spider had just started spinning its web. 2 hours later, I was on my way back to the car when I found JJ and Dante shooting the web. Love this shot so much!
