The Milky Way is our home galaxy. From the northern hemisphere, we can see its milky trail stretching across the sky from spring till fall. When seen from a dark site with the naked eye, it’s a beautiful sight. But nothing can capture its splendor like long exposure photography.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve become increasingly enamored with photographing our celestial home. The naked eye can only see the faint glow of the millions of starts that create this faint band of light across the sky, but modern camera sensors and proper technique can resolve hundreds of thousands of them.
Here you will find my Milky Way images. Most are shot with either a Nikon D7000 or D750 using a Vivitar 13mm f/2.8, Tokina 16-28 f/2.8, or Nikon 24-70 f/2.8.
