Patriotic sky...

This is another shot of the other night's milkyway. We are still on the island, and will be leaving on the 4th of October back to Cape Town, we still have some training left with the new team and offloading of new supplies. I can't wait to see home again. This one is for all the South Africans. The flag is always raised at the base here on the island and a bit weather beaten by now. No pollution or light makes this island perfect for star photography, I will miss this once we get back.

The Penguins and seal photos will follow this one!

 

Image details: Nikon D300

Fisheye f1.8, 30sec, rear flash for the flag.

Photoshop with some curves and contrast.
