A couple of Milky Way shots from South Africa

Recommended Posts

I recently visited South Africa, and took the opportunity to lie my SLR on its back and grab a couple of 30s exposures of the darkest, clearest skies I've ever seen - the Cygnus Rift was visible instantly to the naked eye, even without dark adapting. Not the best photos ever, and they've only had minimal processing, but I'm pretty pleased with them.

Luke: It wan't flash - it was a dim torch shining on us to make us visible in the foreground (we were too dark when I tried it otherwise)!

Michael: Kruger National Park. Highly recommended!
