So enough with the promotion, I am headed off to Victoria BC tomorrow by way of boat. Hopefully there will be some unique landscapes to shoot up there. Due to all the clouds I see hanging over Seattle right now I really doubt any stars will be hangin’ around.
The Shot:
My first time at Ruby Beach on the Olympic Peninsula was amazing. After a decent sunset I went back up to my car and had a few drinks and laid around waiting for the stars. After a while things started to dim down a bit and there it was the Milky Way. This night was like nothing I had ever seen, the stars were basically laying right on top of me. I laid there and stared into the sky forever…

    I’ve seen a version of this picture on your site that doesn’t have the shooting star. Did you add this in post processing?

    Absolutely stunning. I am renting a 16mm Fish Eye and going camping this weekend to shoot the skies at night. I am so happy I ran into your site. I work with a D300 hoping to get my images to look half as good as yours. Keep up the great work and inspiring others. It’s awesome work, you’re amazing.

    Hi @Ashley Myers that’s awesome. The fisheye is a ton of fun for Milky Way shots, especially if your shooting with the fast ( f/2.8 ) edition. Enjoy yourself out there. And feel free to share your images on my star photography uploads page. http://www.smugmug.com/photos/guest/hMHB3W/WORKSHOP
