Weekend Wanderings – Photographing the Milky Way
For today’s post I thought I would show you some of the milky way photos that I have been taking recently. I have some from Woomelang, Sealake and down here along the coast between Cape Schanck and Flinders. They seem the same, in some ways, but I have tried to do different things in each them. I am finding that just photographing the milky way isn’t enough now and I want to start trying some new things as well, like looking for interesting foregrounds. This one was taken on the way back from the Pink Lakes. We stopped near Lake Tyrell to take some photos of the milky way. Unfortunately the clouds came over quickly. I don’t mind the clouds in this one. This one and some others were taken around the old shearing shed in Woomelang. I wasn’t sure I would be able to get the shearing shed, but I am glad I got this. There is a bush in front of the shearing shed and it casts a big shadow on it, I wonder if I could get the council there to cut it down. The other night I went out with a friend and we went down to the Sorrento back beach to take some sunset shots. It was a great spot. I do love photographing the ocean. After we had dinner we went out past Cape Schanck to see what photos of the milky way we could get. There was enough of a moon shining on the coast and you could get some wonderful night shots of the coast. I would really love to go back and do some shots with the full moon sometime. I have a long day ahead today. I have a One on One in the city and it will be all day. I am looking forward to it, but it will be a long day. So I am going to leave it here and put the photos in a gallery for you.
