Milky Way @ Monument Rocks

You guys better get used to some Milky Way shots.  Took a lot of pics up at the Monument Rocks Park in NW KS on Sunday night.  Had a clear sky with very little light pollution.  By far the best Milky Way opportunity that I’ve had.  I’m only a little disappointed in myself that I didn’t get up there sooner in the summer when the galactic core was higher in the sky.  This shot was a 49 second exposure at f/2.8 and at 14mm.  Used a light off to my left to illuminate the rocks.

  9. Epically captured! I can only hope to accomplish something like that someday in my life – so much light pollution here in New England that it’s hard to even attempt 😦
