I arrived at Sterling Pond’s iconic rock shortly after sunset. I set up the shot on the tripod and waited. To accomplished this image I took two exposures of the same scene at different times. For the exposure of the landscape I shot a 30 second exposure while there was still enough light left to see the scene with my naked eye. I then hunkered down for a couple hours until it was completely dark and the Milky Way was in position over the pond.
The Milky Way lays out horizontally across the pond in the spring and it requires a clear moonless night to be visible. This technique also only works if it’s a calm windless night. If the trees are blowing in the breeze it’s impossible to get the two shots to line up seamlessly. What that all means is that there’s only a few days a year it’s possible to make this image.
