Congratulations to Conrad Tan for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 10 votes - View Previous Winners


Haven't had much wildlife to photograph this summer, so I've been doing this stuff for a bit. It was my first effort at getting the Milky Way. I did a ton of research on how to find it, what apps to use, what post processing needs to go into it, what gear, etc. This moment where there was a light fog retreating back into the sea only lasted a few minutes after I got there. I was actually annoyed that it was foggy and looked forward to shooting later when it was supposed to clear up. I didn't realize it would add to the overall look of this scene. I hope you like it!

Wow Congrad, That is an amazing shot!

Did you go during the lighting ceremony to get the lights to come out like that?

I just got lucky. It was lit the night I went.

Hey Conrad,

That is super cool! Good job on capturing it, and in processing it. Those light beams are so sweet! Getting the Milky Way in the background is a real cool bonus.

Thank you Jim! I actually have quite a few of these. I still need to get more noise out of it.
