The Milky Way at Cannon Beach Landscape Photography by Michael Matti
I love shooting the Milky Way whenever I get the chance. This chance was down in the beautiful town of Cannon Beach, Oregon. The Milky Way can be quite the challenge to photograph as it has to be a clear night, the right time of year, near a new moon, and somewhere away from light pollution. All these factors were true on this night which allowed me to get this shot. The hotels along the beach behind me even helped light up the seastacks.
