For a long time now I have been obsessed with capturing a photo of the Milky Way. However, living in NYC makes that impossible. I have spent countless hours researching and plotting where I could go that has truly dark skies. Waiting for a night with a new moon. Waiting for a night with no clouds. Anyone who shoots the night sky, or owns a telescope knows how frustrating this could be. And now, I know how rewarding it can be when it all comes together.
Finally, this weekend I was able to get my first shots. And it wasn’t easy. A five and a half hour solo drive, and 700′ climb up a mountain with an extremely steep “trail”. In the end though, it was well worth it. I was able to capture plenty of Star Trails, Time-Lapses, and the Milky Way. I couldn’t be happier with the shots I took, so I hope you all appreciate them as much as I do.
This was my first attempt at such an endeavor so, I would love to hear any and all feedback.
