Since I had such good luck with the Milky Way last night, I decided to go out with my friend Nigel tonight to photograph more of the evening sky. It’s also the peak of the Perseid Meteor shower this weekend, so I had to try to get some meteors.
Luckily, I caught a few over this barn near Luther Marsh. Nigel mentioned that there was another old barn he found one of his recent outings that we should check out, so we headed over.
Although the galactic center of the Milky Way was not behind this barn, it was still impressive. We tried lighting up the barn and tree with our headlamps. I think I may need a little more practice with this.
Turning in the opposite direction of this barn, I saw another barn (go figure) with the Milky Way core just above it.
I don’t love the light by the barn but the Milky Way looks so large and imposing in this shot. There is a lot more practice and learning required for me to capture the night as I envision it but one day I will figure it out.
