The image is of the Milky Way Galaxy, photographed in the Badlands National Park, South Dakota.
The Badlands National Park, South Dakota.
Last week I posted on my other blog taking a portrait photo of my daughter in the Badlands National Park while we waited for the sky to darken and the Milky Way Galaxy to appear so we could take photos. (The post I am referencing – Portrait in the Badlands.)
The image above is one of the Milky Way Galaxy photos I made. Let me add, it’s not easy when the only practice I get taking astronomical photos is once a year “IF” I make a trip out west. Really dark skies for this type of photography isn’t easy to come by in New Jersey. I have photographed the moon and a comet, but those images didn’t present the challenge the photograph above presented.
…in South Dakota.
