On my first night in Gros Morne National Park (Newfoundland) I took advantage of the clear sky and low light pollution. Even though there was no moon to be seen, I could see surprisingly well from star light.
This is a 9 shot pano of the Milky Way over a forest of pine trees between two mountains in Wiltondale. (Near the southern entrance to the park)
#8 of 200 images that have made the IYL Showcase shortlist. We”ll be posting 2 images/day in the run up to the London Showcase (October 23rd), when the final 20 images will be announced and presented as chosen by the showcase jury..
It’s not often that I do a star trail shot, but on this specific night it just felt right. The conditions were calling out to me. We were shooting in a very dark area of Lake Cuyamaca. The heavy storm clouds broke for only about an hour, allowing us to view the Milky Way.
