Underneath the Milky Sky
I have been enduring a few sleepless nights and coffee-fuelled days in the last week or so, but it's all been worth it for the nighttime views I've witnessed lately. I've been out with my camera attempting to capture the exquisite beauty of the Milky Way galaxy, but there were also many moments of just sitting under the stars, contemplating the existence of my own self on this planet Earth - just another tiny dot of light within the vastness of the universe.
It began last weekend when I waited up until past midnight to capture the Milky Way galaxy core as it rose behind the historic Point Clark, Ontario imperial lighthouse. My husband drove us out to the relatively dark spot and I set up my shot to best block out the several floodlights around the surrounding buildings, while still including those ethereal sweeping beams of light. Luckily, some beautiful trees were there to help with a nice composition. We were only on site for a few minutes when there was a booming sound - the kind of sound you feel in your bones and soul more than you hear with your ears. It was unsettling to say the least, and with bears known to be roaming the area, and a second percussion shaking the ground, I decided quickly that surely I'd gotten a shot I'd be satisfied with, and we up and left! Safe at home, after some careful post-processing, this was my final result:

I would love to see tips on astrophotography and ALL of your photos on your blog. Your photography inspires me to get out enjoy nature and learn all I can about my camera. Thank you so much for sharing your passion!

Sarah, love the way that you're following your passion! It's so obvious that it's what you love to do. So great your family is so very supportive! ❤ Keep on following your dream....We're happy to be "tagging along".
Wow, those photos are awe inspiring. Well done, I wish I had the patience. I take some nice shots but nothing to compare to this Yes, I would like to see some tips. I went out the one night when you posted the Borealis but never, never saw what you saw. Wonderful photos.
