When I went out to shoot the milkyway for the first time, I didn't really have an idea how important all the parameter (like light pollution, the moon, haze and so on) were. I mean, I knew I had to watch out for these things but the sky was clear, I had time for a midnighttrip and wanted to try it anyways, even if the moon was pretty full and bright.
So my dear friend @vivosch and I drove out of the city, right into no man's land to give it a try. When we arrived, we basically saw nothing but the (full-)moon (yeah, yeah... I know). And what you see here is my very first shot of the milkyway. It was more like a joke, like „oh, look over there, there has to be the milkyway, so let's shot it“ and I literally never took a single look on this picture - until two days ago. And I was pretty surprised that I could actually see the milkyway and started to edit it. And that's the result. With this story as a background, I really like the picture a lot.
It’s been a while since I last post here guys. I been busy bee. Just came back from a great trip to Provence and Tuscany, so will be posting a few shots soon.
I start from this cool shot of Great location near Valensole with a stars trail. To shoot this we spend about 5 hours total.
Shot on @canonru 5D mark iV, @sigmaphoto 14-24 mm f2.8 with @acratech GPSS ballhead, @indurotripods Traveler 1 tripod.
