Moonlit Milky Way - Pinnacles Desert, Western Australia

Nikon d5500

35mm

10 x 30 seconds

ISO 3200

f/2.2

This panorama was taken shortly after the waning gibbous moon had risen behind me, which was at about 53% illuminated and providing more than enough light to cast obvious shadows in long exposure shots as you can see here. It also results in the washing out of the core of the Milky Way with detail and colour being lost. This image was shot with the core setting to the west, over the Indian Ocean that you can see on the right side of the horizon.
