Out of curiosity from a city dweller who hasn't been in any dark sky areas in quite some time (and who plans to remedy that very soon), how did the milky way look with just your naked eye in Vic, and could you share the exposure details for that shot if you have them? Great shots all by the way!

thanks!

I'll provide EXIF details when I get home from work (it was likely 21mm, ISO3200, f2.8@25sec), but as far as naked eye, I was able to plainly see the band, including some faint darkening around the stars. Not the colors thought. On the other side of the arc, I could see Andromeda galaxy, though I had to know where to look. For reference, though some hills appeared lit but the city below, it was fairly dark (could not really see the camera bag on the ground). For the #4 shot it was significantly darker, where our group could not see each other - only the red LED of camera's exposure in progress was allowing us to figure out where we were. There was a slight difference in seeing the Milky Way there - the amount of stars in the sky was just overwhelming and the band was slightly brighter.

#1 is easily my favorite of the bunch. I think it is the little, black pebbles that do it for me.

The black sand beach is actually quiet spectacular. The pebbles sparkle in the sunlight, and of course once a clear or a blue berg beaches itself on that sand, it's just an amazing scene. On the downside, I'm still vacuuming that black sand out of all my pockets and camera bags, and trying to clean it out of the tripod twist-locks.
