Milky Way

Horizontal Standard 4 - Milky Way

The milky way, a ‘thing’ in the big space around our globe, has always fascinated me. One night during my stay at Schiermonnikoog there was such a clear sky, that I had to try a milky way shot. I never did it before, because there aren’t many places in Holland where it’s that dark (read: lights are everywhere!). I made a testshot of  a tree with the milky way at the background and I was blown away by the result. It was always a little dream to me to photograph the milky way, but there on the screen of my camera, there it was!

Because I was not happy with the tree on the foreground I took a little trip to the beach (at 1.30 am) searching for a new foreground.  I couldn’t find anything, of course it was dark!, and I reached the beach. I tried some shots of an isolated milky way and I thought that this could work too.

I placed the camera half a meter above the ground on my tripod and took the widest lens (10mm), so I could get the whole milky way (yes it was that big!!). Aperture at f/4.5, focus manually, shutterspeed at 30 seconds and click: the result!
