Winter Shores

As winter begins here on the shores of Jervis Bay, the core of the Milky Way glows amidst a billion stars as it curves across the Bay to meet the dawn.

    1. Thanks for the comment Irene … To make images of the stars including of course the milky way, you need your camera mounted to a tripod and set it to manual. Shutter speed should be around 20-25 seconds with a very wide lens aperture (as low as you can set it – f/2.8 on mine. Keep your ISO setting around 1600 if you can get that. It will work. The moon is another thing altogether – very bright so very short shutter speed. Regards Wes

  1. Such a beautiful image… and interesting to read about your technique. I don’t do a lot of night photography but images like this inspire me to give it a go.
