When seen from a dark sky our own galaxy is bright, beautiful, and almost intimidating in size. It's also one of my favorite things to photograph. This gallery is a selection of some of my favorite Milky Way images.
Taken from Assateague Island National Seashore, Maryland. This is a vertical panorama taken with a Canon 6D and Sigma 35mm f/1.4 art lens. In processing I did a slight star reduction to boost the impact of the Milky Way's structure.
