I was a little bit disappointed after moving to South Carolina and away from the mountains and dark skies of CO/UT. It didn’t stop me from searching for dark skies, however.
This shot was taken off of Edisto Beach in South Carolina. A total of 5 different exposures went into making this image. After composing my shot I used a star tracker to take a several minute image of the Milky Way to get as much detail out of it as possible. During one of the test shots one of the craziest shooting stars I have seen sped across the sky. Of course I had to incorporate it into the final. Stopping the tracking while keeping my composition I waited until dawn to shoot the waves. I used an image for the foreground wave, one for the waves crashing over the rock wall, and a third image with myself in the image.
Each of those shots was then layered in PS and blended to give the final image. Being only a short drive from Charleston, SC, there was certainly some light pollution so the Milky Way was not as isolated and detailed as I was hoping to achieve, but the image still turned out great!
