Warmth hides beyond
This past Sunday I went out shooting with Seth Lemmons at Castle Rocks. This was his first time venturing into the night in the great outdoors with his camera. We had a great time and were out shooting until 2am.
This shot was taken just a short walk down the road from the previous two images. In fact, you can see the tree in this shot alongside the road in the Castle Rock Road shot in my photostream. I have to admit that I comp stomped on Seth to get this capture, although I was lucky enough to have a 17mm lens which could capture more of the Milky Way.
For those looking to plan your nights in order to hopefully capture the Milky Way, the Fourmilab Switzerland website can create star maps for any location at any time. When using these maps, the brightest part of the Milky Way is located between the Sagitarius and Scorpius constellations and may not always be visible in your sky.
