Clear Sky Over Beaver Island by taffy

Clear Sky Over Beaver Island

It was Junko's last night visiting and we had been hoping for clear skies after the past few days of clouds and rains. The sky didn't disappoint. This was my first shot so the moon had not yet set, and it was illuminating the lake, sand, and beach trees on the dune. With the Milky Way overhead, it was quite the scene. As we photographed the Milky Way (Junko, Vickey, me), we watched the crescent moon slowly sink in the sky and turn bright orange. Definitely best on black background.

Your Milky Ways are always spectacular but this one is special for how you ground it in reality but giving a context. We had such a fun night!

Fav. Amazing shot and image. Our skies are so polluted with light that we we can hardly see more than a star or two. You are very lucky to be able to take stunning shots like these.
